It felt good to be thankful and most importantly, it felt good to be happy. Because, that’s what I am. Happy.
Happy anniversary handsome pants. I love you.
My sisters-in-law gave me this Tiny Hands Body Butter Bar from Lush two Christmases ago… and it finally surfaced. At first, I thought it was soap, but when it didn’t suds up in the shower I ended up doing a little research to figure out what exactly it was. Now that I know it’s a body butter bar I can’t keep my hands off it.
When I think about Valentine’s Day, I think about sitting in my friend Jacqui’s bed during our Sophmore year of college. The house she was living in hadn’t seen an insulation or window update in half a century and the only way to stay warm was to chat whilst under the covers. We sat there for hours — talking, eating puppy chow and becoming the very best of friends. It’s one of my favorite memories of our friendship.
In the past couple months, I’ve come across a few things that make my day just a little brighter each time I use them/come across them and I thought I’d share. Here what I’ve been loving this month!
Ok, before I even start this post let’s get something crystal clear:
1.) I am not the most photogenic person in the world

It may not be rocket science, but it makes such a huge difference in how I feel about planning, prepping, making and eating. Give it a whirl, I promise you’ll love it just as much as we do. Unless, you’re one of those people that doesn’t eat leftovers… then, you’re on your own.
The night I bought my ticket I had to pinch myself and cross my legs to keep from peeing with excitement. I’ve wanted to go to a blogging conference for years and have just never done it. Well, 2013 is my year and here’s one big burst of joy to start it off right.
Part of that whole post on feeling happy has had to do with the hope I have for 2013, the hope for a better, happier, more fulfilling year living my life. The key here is “living my life”. This past year felt more like going through the motions, wading through each day and praying that the next day would be different. Which, is lame and depressing and not how I want to experience all that goes on around me. So, with the dawning of 2013 I am ready to live — deliberately.
I finally tucked away and widdled down all the Christmas card site and options that were striking my fancy. Which, for the record, happens to be about a million sites with about 4 billion options. It helped to have only one photo (ahem, the only one where we both look semi-presentable, without our eyes closedContinue reading “Our Christmas Card!”
