Currently (September 2020): Enola Holmes, Blogoversary + More

Posted September 2, 2020 by shooting in Personal / 29 Comments

I’m linking up with Anne for Currently and Kristen for What’s New With You? 

Honestly, it’s a bit crazy to think that it’s already September. I’m not complaining though. I’m ready for some Fall weather and Halloween, which is my favorite! This year will definitely look and feel different with COVID, but I’m hoping to still enjoy what I can of the season.

Currently: September 2020

Appreciating: that my blog is 13 years old and still going strong. I’m actually hosting a giveaway in honor of my blogoversary over on Instagram if you’d like to enter. It’s crazy to me that I’ve had this blog for almost half of my life. It hasn’t always been easy, but it’s almost always been enjoyable and I’m not stopping anytime soon. Thank you to everyone who reads my blog, shares my posts, and have become my friends. It means more than you can know.

Anticipating: the movie Enola Holmes on Netflix. It will be released on September 23 and I cannot wait. It’s about Sherlock Holmes’ teen sister, Enola, and it has a wonderful cast (including Millie Bobby Brown as Enola).

Collecting: Christmas gifts. I know it might seem a bit early, but Christmas will be here before I know it so I want to keep up on gifts for people. Etsy has been especially amazing for finding some really fun and unique gift ideas for people. I figure the earlier I start, the easier it will be to get everything I want/need without spending too much money all at once.

Starting: to look into Fall and Halloween events around me that I could possibly attend. The good thing about Fall is that a lot of things can take place outside and with social distancing opportunities. There are a few Fall-themed festivals and even an outdoor craft show on a farm that I’m hoping to check out. Obviously I’ll be wearing a mask and staying away from people as much as possible. If I do attend any of these events, I’ll be sure to talk about them in my Local Tourist posts.

Finishing: my Summer 2020 Bucket List. As I write this, I have most of the items checked off. I just finished Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner and I’m pretty sure I only have two or three more items to cross off!

Feel free to answer any of these prompts in the comments, or leave a link to your own post!

    • Congrats on 13 years! That Enola Holmes movie looks really interesting, I’d like to check that out. I hope you can find some fun fall activities to do outdoors!

  2. 13 years! Way to go! That is a very impressive blogging career. I am so interested in the Enola Holmes movie. I love Millie Bobbie Brown, she will be fantastic! I am hoping to get out to some fall events in some safe ways too. I know our apple orchards are taking steps to open up safely so I’m hoping at the very least we can go do that!

  3. I’m excited about the Enola Holmes movie too! It looks like such a good one! I’ve been all over Netflix lately! I realized I wasn’t following you on instagram either and have remedied that. Congrats on 13 years. That is seriously amazing!

  4. Congrats on 13 years!!! That is awesome! My blog is about to turn 8 next month. I have been collecting Christmas presents lately too. It makes it so much easier when you spread it out over several months.

  5. Wow, Millie Bobby Brown is totally unrecognizable in that poster! Looks interesting; I’ll have to add that show to my must-watch list!

    I love fall so much and can’t wait to take Mila (hopefully!) to some outdoor festivals and things. I think there are definitely ways to do this safely and am (personally!) so excited for my first apple cider donut of the season 😊 hope you are having a great weekend, Lauren!

  6. Congrats on the blog anniversary – it’s fun having you as a blog-land reading buddy! Also thanks for the heads up on Enola Holmes, which I had not heard about before but sounds totally up my alley. That is going to be something fun to look forward to! And how was Big Summer? It’s on my list, but haven’t gotten around to it.

    I didn’t even know that Enola Holmes was coming out! I am super excited now. Thank you for sharing that. Thirteen years blogging is awesome!! Congratulations 🙂

  8. Ooooooh that edition of Cinderella is Dead is super pretty! And happy 13 years of blogging! Here’s to many years of continuing blogging. I completely forgot about Enola Holmes – for some reason I thought it was going to come out next year or later this year when I first heard about it.

  9. Happy blog anniversary. Thirteen years!! Amazing!
    That Sherlock Holmes spin off looks fun. Is fun the right word? Love the graphic you shared for it. The typeface for the title makes me think it is going to be quirky and cute.
    Atta girl for collecting Christmas gifts already. I have no idea where to begin with presents for my fam. We are all saving for Disney so Christmas might look a lot like Mickey ears.
