Lately: January

People. How is it nearly February already? I’m still trying to catch up, writing “2015” at the top of all of my letters and figuring out just how exactly these resolutions are going to be attainable.

I wish that I had more time to write these days, but life has just been plain ol’ crazy. Big things are happening for our little fam – more to come about that soon, promise.

My dear friend Gwen (happy birthday!) said that she enjoyed reading this series – it’s a great reminder of how easily we can give ourselves the gift of journaling and jotting memories down, no matter how busy we are. I love doing Latelys/Currentlys because it gives me a chance to sit for just a second, reflect, and later, look back on what this little season was like.

I encourage you to do this too, friend. Either on a blog, in a Word document, or in that journal way, way up on your bookcase that you’ve been meaning to dust off…take the time to savor the little things that are making up your world these days. Give yourself the gift of ten minutes.

I hope you’ve been having the happiest and coziest of Januaries. Lately, I’ve been…

Making: slow mornings + quiet time a priority.
Cooking: vegan as often as possible.
Drinking: homemade matcha lattes instead of coffee. Y’all. I AM A BELIEVER.


Reading: Still Alice. (AKA, w e e p i n g all of the time.)
Wanting: warmer weather.
Looking: for an SUV!
Playing: a lot of Kodaline. Particularly, this.
Wasting: as little as possible. We’re all about the minimalism and simplicity these days.
Wishing: for a snow day!
Waiting: for tomorrow night’s concert date with my mama.
Loving: time with girlfriends. Especially grateful for you – Taylor, Laura, and Abby!
Hoping: for a phone call with some good news.
Marveling: at God’s goodness. Far beyond what I deserve.
Needing: to get some long runs in. Where are you, warm weather? Where are you, motivation to run even in the freezing cold?
Smelling: eucalyptus + spearmint lotion.
Wearing: Dresses and boots, boots and dresses. Pants are not really my pals these days.
Noticing: we’re getting a little more into the beautiful swing of things four months into marriage. We got this, bud.
BookmarkingThe Chic Site.
Feeling: very, very grateful. And excited. And impatient. And #allthefeels.

  1. Still Alice = amazing. I just finished it a few weeks ago. I want to watch the movie soon…but I don’t know if I’m emotionally prepared for that yet haha 🙂

    I’m ready to start running again — while we still can 🙂
