Loving…walking outside every once in awhile and I’m also loving heading to the gym each morning. I have to go pretty early so I can be here to send my kids off to school, but starting the day off moving my body feels so good and so empowering.
Reading…starting my yearly reading challenge with a few middle grade and young adult novels. Enjoying Turtle in Paradise and What I Saw and How I Lied. Started a couple read alouds with my kids that we are enjoying. Reading To Kill a Mockingbird to Jakob and Absolutely Truly to Isabelle. Also I’m completely loving the book Chasing Slow.
Playing…working through a couple workshops this month. One with Ali Edwards called One Little Word. The other with Amanda Watters of the Homesong Blog. She is doing a Rest Retreat this January on unplugging and living intentionally.
Enjoying…reading by the fire during the day. I have been super busy this month, waking early and going to bed late. I’ve been trying to read before bed, but I’m not a night person and I fall asleep so quickly. A few times this month I have found time to sit by our fire and read, even if it is just for ten minutes. It feels so wintery to read by the fire and I’m loving it.
Listening | A couple of great listens that I’ve been making time for lately. I have really loved watching and listening to Edie Wadsworth of Life in Grace. She has done a series of four great facebook lives on goals and how to live intentionally. Also I’m enjoying Gretchen Rubin’s Happier Podcast. Such a great listen, such practical ideas on living intentionally and striving for joy in life.
Hoping…for the ability to stay on top of all the things. We are starting on our home remodel which is huge and is taking up so much of my days. We also have another huge project in the works that hasn’t come to fruition yet, but looks like it may be happening soon. Trying to prioritize time with Steve and the kids and time for staying on top of a simple healthy lifestyle for myself. Doing this through my planner, bullet journal, and just trying to get as much as I can done as efficiently as I can.
Just a few things going on in my life right now.
