Can I tell you a secret?
I hate winter. It’s long, dark, cold, and wet (if you live in the PNW like me). BUT, I continue to hear the words “MAKE THE MOST OF IT” pop into my head so you know what!? That is what we’re going to do! Hoping this JANUARY EDIT will help set the tone. You’ll also find an unintentional French theme running through many parts of this month’s roundup, and future blog posts… it’s going to be a good month!
Après is our theme this month – après ski, après snow, après long day (lol), après work, après adulting, après running errands… you get the idea. We’re here for the activities, but also for the after party. Especially because winter can be such a grind.
WELLNESS + OILS:
On that note, did you know that FUN is the fastest way (aside from physical touch) to increase your immune system function!? So during the cold and flu season that is winter, let’s remember to laugh and enjoy our friends and family. Later this week, I’ll be diving into more ways to support our health!
I’ll share my word of the year a little later, but for this month let’s try a few things:
- Journaling! It’s been years since I journaled consistently. Forgot how productive and therapeutic it can be!
- Find our sweet spot… In other words, stop worrying about what we think we should be doing (should-ing ourselves) and instead be true to what I really want.
- Remember that God’s Word is a “lamp for my feet, and a light on my path.” – Psalm 119:105
What about you!?
It’s v, v, après ski and perfect for impromptu dance parties. Click here to listen on Spotify!
CLICK HERE! It’s a compilation of inspiration for all the things mentioned in the post!
Gravitating towards slip skirts, sweaters, and boots, sweater dresses and boots, athleisure with socks (these!) and a puffer, and colorful French manicures! Lots of inspiration on the pinterest board… Looking forward to sharing other fun looks this month!
You’ll find me purging, organizing, and doing some toy decluttering. Last month I tackled our unmanageable stack of board games and puzzles, and will be sharing the process next week. I also have plans for adding some new art to our walls, which is a FAQ, so will be sharing more on that too!
IN THE KITCHEN:
Loving our new dutch oven so plan on continuing with all the soups and maybe some homemade bread. Stay tuned for a delicious (and easy) French onion soup recipe!
Hope everyone had a magical Christmas break and start to the New Year!
