Why Happily Ever Homebody?
Have you ever felt like you weren’t living up to other people’s expectations? Well, Happily Ever Homebody grew out of that frustration. I was constantly being asked to change. To be more of a do-er than a dreamer. To be an extrovert instead of celebrating my introversion. Because do you know what? I like who I am.
I just want a quiet life filled with happy memories, lots of love and a big stack of books. And I already have those things so why would I want more?
What do you Write about?
While Happily Ever Homebody is primarily a book blog, I do sometimes dabble with lifestyle posts. These tend to be about topics like travel, living with a chronic illness, self-care and just generally the cosy aspects of homebody lifestyle.
I currently aim to post at least once a week.
