Currently {Life in January}

Well hello 2017!!! I’m SO happy you’re here!

I absolutely adore January my friends!

the dawn of a brand new year means there’s nothing but possibility ahead.


I can’t help but reflect and evaluate on exactly where I am in my life and how I feel about each and every part of it – what I can work to improve, where I’d like to be heading and how exactly I can get there.

I’ve got a lot to think about my friends and I definitely plan to jump into it all soon, but for now, here’s a quick update about where I am {currently}…

Currently {Life in January} |

Reading: I just opened this one up a few days ago, but already I find myself counting down the minutes until I can pick it up again! After a few heavy hitters in a row, it’s nice to kick back with something a little lighter.

Books to Make this your Most Productive Year Yet


Writing: I’m making time to reflect, even if it is 5 minutes at a time.

Watching: After spending many (wonderful) hours cuddled on the couch watching Christmas movies, I plan on taking a much needed TV break this month.

Farmhouse Style Family Room |

Needing: After deciding that a plant based diet would be best for our family, I’m needing all sorts of inspiration for vegetarian recipes!

Creating: some goals for my life, my blog and my family – I’ve heard amazing things about this brilliant tool to help break things down a bit!

Learning: Every where I go, I hear about how powerful meditation is, how life-changing it can be. I’ve thought often about starting my own practice and what that might look like in my life. I know with all my hear that meditation is something I need to work into my life and so, with a little nudge from this book and some extra help to get started, I couldn’t be more excited to finally be jumping into this journey.

Why buy expensive candles when you can make them instead? You'll never believe how simple it is to create your own pretty DIY candles for just a fraction of the cost!

Planning: What to take on next in this old house of ours.

Loving: Filling my new planner with all sorts of ideas for 2017!

Dreaming about: The wonderful adventures this year will bring!

Wearing: I’ve been living in my long hooded sweaters (similar here).

Coveting: Oh Frye boots … {swoon}.

Working for me right now: The incredible motivation that rolls in with that new year!

Easy ways to create a unique & beautiful farmhouse style office space...

What’s not: Wanting to change all the things, and of course, all at once!

Anticipating: As many ski trips as we can muster through the next few months (and maybe just one somewhere a little warmer as well!).

I’d LOVE to hear where are you currently? What’s new and exciting?


Now please excuse me while I curl up with my latest read & a morning coffee…

Wishing you SUCH a lovely week!

  1. I’m excited for your mediation journey! I started a few months ago with this little app that has helped me finally stick with it! It’s called Breathe if you want to check it out. I aim for 5 minutes a day and it tracks my progress. I can’t wait to see more skiing adventures, I’m currently on one myself 🙂 #SITSblog

    Have a great weekend!
