Reflections: A Look Back at January 2015

Does anyone feel like it was just Christmas yesterday? And now it's almost Valentine's Day. It's weird how time seems to move so quickly. I guess it's true what they say, the days are long, but the years are short. 

Highlights from January 2015:
  • Since I have declared 2015 my year of wellness, I am being very intentional about taking care of myself. This means eating well, going to spin class with my spin buddies, and making sure I find a few moments for myself here and there. 
  • I saw American Sniper and was completely stunned, but in the best way possible. If you haven't seen it yet, GO SEE IT. Bradley Cooper delivers his best performance yet. 

I absolutely loved the wrapping paper!! 

I loooovvvveeed reading "Landline" by Rainbow Rowell, so Shelly absolutely made my day with Rowell's other books. I cannot wait to read them! Thank you so much, Shelly! :)

Goals for February 2015:
  • Read 9 books. If I'm going to reach my goal of 100 books this year, I need to pick up the pace a little bit. Anybody know any good short books? Ha, I kid, I kid. 
  • Go to spin class at least once a week. 
  • Do random acts of kindness throughout the month. For friends, family, strangers - doesn't matter who, I just want to spread a little joy. 

Now it's YOUR turn. What did you accomplish this past month? What are your goals for next month? I'll be your cheerleader, put me to work! xo


  1. Get it girl - 7 books in one month??? I don't think I've even read 7 books since Kendall was born (18 months ago!). I need to up my game!!! Super impressed.

  2. Wow 7 books?! That's awesome!

  3. Good for you. Ironically my goal for February is to relax. I've been working too hard for too long and need to re-charge my personal battery.

  4. Don't forget that you were awesome in January and to be awesome in February!

  5. Seven books is still a great number! And great job with eating well and getting your workouts in. :)

  6. Seven books? Well, now I feel like an underachiever….. where's my cheerleader?!?
    I love that you are committing yourself to kindness!! I try to have the kids help me with small random acts of kindness often; I hope they will always do them even when I am not around.

  7. What are those little square goodies that she sent you? Truffles, or something? How sweet that she sent you Rowell's other books- I hope you love those, too!

  8. I want to read both Fangirl and Eleanor and Park (I got E&P from my swap partner too!)

  9. I finally got Fangirl last December, can't wait to read it. You got some great books here! Enjoy them!
