January: an overachiever ♥

Oh January! 

Once again you have overachieved!  The cold, the snow, the ice….you are so good at this!  January never fails to succeed at making me not wanting to leave the house.  Under a warm blanket watching TV is where I want to be.  Unfortunately life carries on in January and I’m forced to put on boots and a hat (ugh) and go out into the cold.  It’s not my favorite but we do what we have to do, knowing my cozy spot will be there at the end of the day.  I appreciate it more these days. 

I’m grateful for the bright sunshine that comes through the windows in the morning warming up the room.  And also for flowers!  Spring flowers in the winter are just delightful, aren’t they?  The other day I picked up some tulips at the grocery store.  I told Rob I did it for my health.  

These are medicine ♥  

I’ve got little bits of Valentine’s Day scattered around the house.  Hearts make me happy and we definitely need happy in the dead of winter. Now that John is older he doesn’t have Valentines parties at school anymore.  I used to love helping him write little Valentine cards to his friends.   This year I decided to write my own Valentine’s cards and send them out.  Something I haven’t done in years.  I ordered these beautiful vintage ones from Victoria Trading Company.  I wish I had all your addresses so I could send you one! ♥♥♥

So January, I hope you are proud of yourself!  You’ve done your job.  I’ve gained 5 lbs from sitting on the couch watching TV and not wanting to move.  I’m hoping to gain some of my mojo back as we head toward Spring (fingers crossed!).   But first….

Tonight is Rob’s birthday so I must leave room for cake.  And then Sunday is the Super bowl, so... there’s that.  And then in two weeks is every chocolate lovers dream come true…Valentine’s Day.  

Yup, I’m doomed! (yet not complaining at all….: ) 

Happy last of day of January, my friends! I hope it was a great month for you!  Tonight we will be celebrating Rob’s birthday with take out from his favorite restaurant!  I suggested going out to eat but it’s so cold out he preferred staying in.  Ok by me ♥    We’ll have cake and ice cream and then watch a movie in our cozy spot (it’s waiting for us!).

Also, don’t forget to look for the full blue moon tonight and make a wish!

 I’ll see you all in February! ♥♥♥

  2. Happy blue moon birthday to Rob! It's an extra special one this year. A cozy night in with yummy takeout, cake and ice cream sounds like bliss! It's also a great way to say goodbye to January. I'm over all the snow already. Let's hope the groundhog predicts an early spring! xoxo
