August was definitely a little crazy. We were without internet for most of the month, and that is why it has been so quiet around here. I am looking forward to hopefully getting back to a normal schedule of posting. I thought about skipping this post all together, but it is one of my favorites to write each month.
Posts I’m Loving from August:
Since we didn’t have internet for most of the month I didn’t get to read very many posts. So today I only have two to share.

Things I’m Loving from August:
Planning ahead for the holidays.
Part of being a blogger is thinking and planning months in advance. It is the only way to ensure that I have time to complete the projects that I want to accomplish. During the month of August, I really started thinking about what I would like to do here at Joy for Each Step over the holidays. One of the first thoughts that came to mind was creating a Holiday Planner. (Have I mentioned that I love planners.) I am hoping to launch it October first, and I can’t wait for y’all to see it!
An inspirational story that doesn’t just entertain.
During the month of August I read The Ringmaster’s Wife by Kristy Cambron. This book was my first introduction to this author, and I was very pleasantly surprised. When I first read about this book I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read it. The circus just wasn’t something that I thought would catch my interest. Thankfully I received a free copy of the book to review, and I am so glad I did. Had I not received that copy, I would have missed out on what will probably be my favorite read of the year. It is just that good. As a reader I really connected with the characters, and gleaned from the wisdom shared. This book did not just entertain me, it spoke to my heart through the thoughts shared. I absolutely cannot wait to read more of Kristy’s books!
How was your August? Have you read any books that you just absolutely loved lately?
