Rae’s Violet Words: 21 of 2021

Hello, you. I see you, in those onesie pajamas with an animal hood, sipping herbal tea as you read this post. You’ve been checking out my Instagram and Twitter, wondering when I’d post again. It’s been a month. But there you are, reading yet another post. I see you, and I thank you.

Ugh, I just cringed typing that. But I hope it caught your attention!

This was one long AF year. But it had its good moments, ESPECIALLY in terms of music and reads.

It is now the final month of the year, which means it’s time to share with y’all the standout moments on and off the RVW blog. It has been quite the year, and I won’t even compare and contrast it with 2020’s awfulness. In all honesty, this year was pretty decent, all things considered (cough, cough, struggle girl hours in Denton and San Antonio).

Alright! You’re probably wanting to rush me ahead to the list already. Not so fast– let me explain what’s ahead!

To make it easy on myself and less time-consuming, less boring, so and so forth… this is just a round up of 21 things that really defined my year in the categories of food, music, shows and movies, books, podcasts and favorite moments. Of course, I had to hype up my blog as well. So, I’ve included my top 3 posts of the year.
