My Walk Through Jane Austen's World

If you follow me on Instagram you're probably sick of me posting about my trip to Jane Austen's House Museum in England last fall. Well, get over it.

At the beginning we all have big goals, big dreams, and loads of motivation. I've devised a plan to keep me on track with the goal to READ MORE. (First of all - Less Netflix! I mean really, how many times should a person watch
