January, I am learning to love you



I would like to take a moment and say good bye to January until next year. I am always happy to see you go. Although this January has been better than most. I am learning to love and live in the moment more. Time flies so fast, so what a blessing it is to have a few months that drag on a little.

pull time back a bit.


Here are a few things I've enjoyed about January.


1- A new calendar
I thought this calendar would look great in my kitchen, and it does!






2- Speaking of musicals, I saw wicked in Los Angeles this month. So good!!! Now if only I can weasel my way into some tickets here in Utah.


3- A first and much needed family vacation.


4- Knitting, I love curling up on the couch during nap time or after kids have gone to bed to knit. It's like my form of meditation.


5- Wearing yummy scarfs and beanies. Hopefully some hand knit.



6-Cuddling on the couch. something that is so wonderful in january with lots of blankets. Rhett told me the other day that he loves me because I will snuggle with him. Melt my heart right there.

6- board games. Most definitely a winter past time.


7- Lost starts up again!!
8-And last but not least, the love of my life's birthday is in January!!


So there, January!! I'll be looking forward to you again next year.

Thanks for that Amy. I feel the same way, I love January because after a hectic December it's so nice to be calm. And 2 of my kids have birthdays.

Loved your post. You know we share the same sentiments about the long winters in these parts. I was feeling pretty excited to wake up on February 1 and think -- "We made it!!" Now, how many more weeks/months until the thaw?

You are such a positive thinker! Good way to be! Hopefully see ya in March when I'm down! Dinner on the 6th is what we're shooting for! I wanna see Wicked soooo bad! :( I love the music and got to sing Elphaba's part in a concert a few months ago! Soo fun!! Wish I could swing some tickets in SLC too!
