Lately // February 2018

Lately // February 2018

It happens every year: Christmas ends, the new year begins, and I breathe a sigh of relief that the busyness of the holidays is over and we can settle into a calmer routine. And then I remember that our “normal” routine isn’t all that calm. These last couple of months have been packed full—thankfully, with… Continue Reading

What’s Saving My Life Right Now

Today, Groundhog Day, marks winter’s midway point. It’s a hard season for many (myself included), which makes it the perfect time to take stock of what’s been keeping us afloat—those bright spots that stand out amidst February’s gloom and grey…. Three years ago on this day, Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs. Darcy began an annual… Continue Reading

Lately // January 2018

One month down, eleven to go! If the rest of 2018 pans out to be anything like this first month, it’s going to be a very great and also very full year. I dove right into this new year and hit the ground running. Well, that isn’t entirely true: our New Year’s Eve was pretty… Continue Reading

Two Thousand Seventeen: The Highlights

Two Thousand Seventeen: The Highlights

I’ve enjoyed spending time this past week reminiscing about the year. I’ve reflected on—and blogged about—favorite books and what I’ve learned, and today I’m sharing my final 2017 reflections with highlights and favorites from the year.

It’s funny to think about what has changed in the last twelve months, and what… Continue Reading

Lately // November 2017

Lately // November 2017

November is just about finished, and what a month it has been! We kicked off the month with one family trip, and ended with another (much longer) one—it felt like we were gone more than we were home this month. Between trips, we started making Christmas preparations, I finished up the fall semester of my Women’s… Continue Reading

Lately // October 2017

This October update is coming to you midweek (aka, not a usual posting day for me), for the slightly very OCD reason that I wanted to include Halloween pictures in my monthly recap and couldn’t bring myself to wait for November’s Lately post—because Halloween is clearly not a November holiday and has no business getting mixed… Continue Reading

Thirteen Things I Learned in September  {2017}

Thirteen Things I Learned in September {2017}

September was jam-packed (as I’m sure you noticed from Friday’s monthly recap post). All the activity provided fertile ground for some deep learning, and I was uncharacteristically intentional about taking time to acknowledge the lessons while ithey were occuring instead of waiting until afterwards to do my processing.
