February Books

I only read 3 new books in February, though I also re-read a 3 book series. So far I've knocked out 12 out of 60 new books for 2019. I'm on the hunt for new ones to try! I just started listening to the Bad on Paper podcast so hopefully I'll stumble on some good... Continue Reading →

Snow Day Musings

K and I both got lucky with a snow day today so we definitely made the most of it. Slept in, shoveled snow, tackled some house projects and surprised our niece with a birthday snow ball fight (we won). Now we're enjoying a fire, creating some custom rugby kits for his tournament over the summer... Continue Reading →

Reliving the 80’s

I took a mini girls vacay this weekend by meeting my sister in Charlottesville for some wineries and a concert. We only spent half a day together but managed to cram in 2 wineries, dinner & drinks, and the Legwarmers before crashing in our hotel room! I'll do a review of the wineries later on...

January Books

I started out 2019 with a pretty impressive January reading list. I have a goal of reading 60 NEW books this year (can't count the re-reads) and I knocked out 9 in January! It helped that I made it to the library twice and I'm still forgoing most TV so I end up with more... Continue Reading →

It's rare for us to get a chance to get together without our husbands or kids so this was a nice afternoon for us to sit down and just enjoy our friendship! Morais Vineyards is a Portuguese winery setting its roots in Virginia.... Continue Reading →

Just give it that clean fresh slate the house so desperately needed. BUT I read Emily Henderson's blog {https://stylebyemilyhenderson.com/} and there was a whole post about... Continue Reading →

Sunday thoughts

At my yoga class today, our instructor had us start the class with a personal intention. I usually have 2 that I pick from - strength and love. The love is for myself - I force myself to acknowledge what I need that day and how my body feels as I take myself through the... Continue Reading →

December Books

I went to check out my goodreads account and discovered that I read 3 books in December. THREE. Apparently life got way in the way of things and I completely dropped the ball there. I guess all the packing, and moving, and holiday life got the best of me. I vow to get back in... Continue Reading →

Game On.

It's the first day of the new year and as cliché as it is, I always like to think of my goals for the upcoming year and see where I'm at with the intentions I set for the past year. I made some good moves over the past 12 months, but I also made some... Continue Reading →
