January 2020

January. Feels sooo long but I soak up every second of the calmer fresh start. Especially this year after the last crazy stretch of 2020 with our move, new baby, settling into a new area, and renovating our home. It now has felt so good to just be here and setting into semi-normal routine! Loved every minute of our simple happy January. It doesn’t hurt that this winter beach weather is my dream…cozy foggy mornings and nights, but perfect sunny days…with just the right amount of rainy days sprinkled in.
