It has been such a long and hard semester. I started a new job working at a local coffee shop, I'm taking more classes than normal (and they're kicking my butt), we started fixing up and moving into a different house and our sweet pup, Austen, passed away. Life is just busy right now and as much as I wanted to participate in the Write31 challenge, I just couldn't keep up with all of the grief from losing Austen, the homework that was piling up and the house work that needed to be done.

I'm taking a small break from Novelties and Trinkets for the rest of the semester. I may be writing posts here and there about adventures we take or events that happen, but I'm welcoming the overall break of writing for this space. Thanks for understanding!

See you soon,
