February 3, 2016

I'm looking forward to quite a few things this month: a show this weekend, a visit with Ron and Julie, the superbowl (GOOOO Panthers!), my Mom's birthday, and maybe getting together for coffee with my friend Allegra. We're also going to exchange the Christmas gifts we never got around to exchanging due to my sister's travels, so that will be exciting! In the meantime, the cold snap came back and brought some flurries with it. I'm currently....

Sending: I'm really struggling with what to write for this category...I'm going to go with phone calls. I've been working my way through calling people that I haven't talked to in forever. It's been really nice to catch up! 

Planned meals and onions on everything! Any time I think of a meal, I jot it down and then about once a week I look over the list and plan out the next five or six days worth of dinners. Some day I hope to have a "this is what we eat" plan for every season.

Dreaming: Of getting together a monthly newsletter for YOU guys. Also, of starting up a podcast. The newsletter is a new dream and the podcast is something I've been kicking around for ages. I just need a co-host and a theme. We'll see!

Smelling: The crisp winter air on the few times I've gone for walks over the past few weeks. Also, cinnamon and maple syrup. I made a french toast casserole the other night and the leftovers smell sooooo good. I wonder if there is an essential oil that smells ANYTHING like maple syrup?

Hearting: Our routine lately and Emily Dickinson. It took some getting used to, but I've got a schedule going and that makes all the difference. Alicia's course has helped me approach winter in a new way too.

As always, I'm linking up with Jenna and Anne and I think you should too!


  1. I'm jealous of the meal planning! Your list is impressive.

  2. That casserole sounds delicious!

  3. Mmm... cinnamon and maple syrup! Delightful aromas!

  4. Hi I found you through the linkup and glad I did! I agree, meal planning makes things so much easier.
