Happenings 1.8.17

Happy Sunday! We are snuggled in at home watching the Packer game and my fingers are crossed for a W. Go Pack Go! In an effort to document more of our life and blog a little bit more regularly, I thought I’d start a Happenings series – when time allows, I’ll simply share random thoughts and photos – which will hopefully make my monthly recaps posts a teeny bit shorter 🙂 For SND I am making roasted brussels sprouts and sweet potato soup. I finished 2 books: Behold the Dreamers and The Dollhouse – EXCELLENT reads. What have your favorites been […]

But you know what? 2017 is going to be different – the year I let myself be me without caring what other people think or comparing my goals to someone else’s. That’s just not fair and life is too short!

December 2016 in Review

December has been one of my favorite months – not because of the holiday (because my holiday spirit was severely lacking) – but because of the wonderful memories that filed this month with so much joy! Sometime, I’d love to fill December with Christmas parties and cookies and hosting guests and ALL the holiday things, but this year just simply wasn’t the year for that, and I’m feeling okay about it. Happenings My first month working for myself – learning LOTS and finding work/life balance Celebrating the marriage of our sweet friends, Kathryn and Sahil, in Houston Spending 9 days […]

November 2016 in Review

November has come and gone and it’s no surprise my monthly recap is a few days late! I’m actually writing this at 30,000 feet somewhere over the Dakotas on our way home from Houston.
