Oh January, I will miss you

Oh January, I will miss you for your lazy coffee drinking mornings, responsibility free days, and cuddly nights.  Thank you for allowing me to begin to let go, and rid my life of toxic shit.

The end of December was really rough for me.  I had a string of sicknesses, including getting food poisoning on Xmas day, and leaving my abusive and stressful job.  January was all about recovery.  Taking it easy and trying to mentally focus on just me.  I spent most of it being depressed on my couch, but hey, you know, first step right.

February, I look forward to you!  I'm excited to start my new ventures and follow that road to who knows where.

Here were some highlights in January:

I talked about my life change, and how the new year seemed like a great time for a new start.

I made some super delish eggnog pops.

I received a box of very pretty gifts from a very pretty lady.

I made my house smell wintery with some simmering potpourri.

Jared and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary.

More adventures in booze infusing!  This time: earl grey gin.

I tried Nutella for the first (world = blown), and made some tasty nutella hot chocolate.

Made my first pom-pom, bookmark style.

Shared some of our engagement shots.

Started a new January tradition.

Looking forward to a new month, with new possibilities.



  1. Sounds like you've been having a good time! I found your blog recently and I'm so glad because you post some awesome stuff. I totally want to try that Earl Grey Gin?! And now I'm seeing these eggnog popsicles! But you know, I like all the other stuff you post too, not just food & booze ;) Anyways, fun recap...

  2. I'm so happy you had a lovely January and took time for yourself.


  3. Ah, I love your engagement picture! :) Such a pretty dress!

  4. Your engagement photos are beautiful, so dreamy! I cannot believe you haven't had Nutella before (it is one of my guilty pleasures) xo

  5. That hot chocolate looks amazing. These past 2 months were pretty stressful but now that I'm ALL done with school I am hoping for better months and years. I hope February is a better month for you!

  6. Ok I have a bone to pick with you - it's one in teh morning, I have to go to bed and now you have made me hungry with all those mouthwatering pics! Looooove your engagement dress btw

  7. The engagement dress looks wonderful. And I want some of that Earl Grey infused gin. I believe that February is going to be an awesome month for you. Think happy thoughts!

  8. Being depressed isn't really what you wish for, but sometimes I think you need to go through these hard times as well. You'll get out on the other side, stronger and happier!

    Sending my thoughts to you.

  9. You had me at "lazy coffee mornings" I can't believe it's February either, but hey, bring it on right?

  10. what a great recap! i can't believe it's february already, either! but you've *obviously* had a great month— cheers to many more this year!

  11. I too good riddanced 2012 and feel so delighted to be moving (albeit slowly) into 2013, it feels better already. Loved your recap, in particular your engagement shot (you gorgeous things), earl grey gin and the hot chocolate. hope your world is feeling much brighter. x


I love your comments! I read each and every one, and they brighten my day.
