Good morning! Since we’re into a new month, I wanted to back up for a minute and share some life things from January.

First, a couple of fun blog announcements:

  1. I was recently chosen to be an IDEA Inspired Blogger.
  2. I was also selected to be a POPSUGAR Select Fitness Blogger.
  3. I was featured on the GaiamTV blog talking about some of my daily rituals in the morning and before bed.

I’m totally honored and thrilled to be listed along some of the other amazing people/blends on all three of these sites. Make sure to check them out!

Next, some fun deliveries to my doorstep:

There’s been a lot of bread making in my apartment. Someone likes his new toy.

There’s also been more attempts at planned relaxation time. What a thought.


There’s also been some forced relaxation time. Snowy nights have that effect!
