Hi friends! It’s been pretty silent over here because even though I’ve been reading plenty, I’m waaaaay behind on putting up reviews. I also haven’t baked anything for ages, other than holiday pies I got a lovely espresso machine for Christmas though, so now I’m back in an espresso-fueled burst of productivity.
You may notice a slight change in the blog layout as I’ve moved the Favorites and House Tour tabs under the About Me section, to make room for a tab on my review policies. I haven’t had many inquiries, but enough that I wanted to put something down in writing. I’ve also been working behind the scenes to set up an account on Edelweiss so I can keep better track of what’s coming up for 2016 and beyond – and there’s a ton! For those looking ahead, my next post will be all about what I’m excited to get my hands on this year.
I need to update the Horrible Hound tab too, because as those of you following along on Instagram will know, we added another 4-legged member to our family right before Thanksgiving! Our new addition, Rocket (aka Tiny Terror, aka Weasel, aka Skunky) is a little over a year old and full of energy – and he’s a chewer. So there’s plenty going on at the BarksandBaking house.
I was clearly a little overambitious when I set my 2015 reading goal. According to my Goodreads stats, I read 76 books in 2014, so I though 75 would be do-able (especially since I’ve been getting so many advance copies!) but life got busy… I’m scaling back a bit and have set my 2016 goal for 55 books, and I’m already 6 books down, so hopefully I can knock the whole list out this year.
