I’ve got “I’m here to take care of you” written and stuck around all points of my house. In the cupboard. In my makeup bag. Next to my bed.
I got into the habit of bullet journaling last year but I was kind of getting tired of being expected to be creative and draw my layout every week. My partner got me a planner for Christmas, though, and I’m using it. It’s great! I actually do KIND OF miss the customizability of a #bujo but only barely. But if YOU are on the Bullet Journal train, go follow Shayda Campbell’s doodles and get inspired.
This is basically my ideal salad. I’ve been craving it a lot lately. It’s been in my regular rotation ever since I happened upon this recipe a few years ago (although I leave out the beets–they’re pretty but I do not like them).
I’ve been working on building up my art collection for both my Etsy shop (which is coming at some point) and for a showing coming up in the next few months. I’ve also done three commissions this month! Here’s a little peek at a few things I’ve got coming together.
Lovely, Nameless Feelings (via Cup of Jo)
The most delicious vindication since… well… in my whole lifetime: watching the live-stream of the Larry Nassar sentencing. Judge Aquilina is every woman’s absolute hero. I just spent the whole day crying the most delicious tears.
We’re heading for San Diego to visit our dear, dear friends Doug and Staci!! In fact, by the time you’re reading this, we’re already there and if you’re following me on Instagram, you’re already seeing photos and stories about our trip. But right now I’m sitting at my desk in Kansas, staring out the window to a big field filled with snow (I’m scheduling this post to drop at the end of the month while we’re gone). I love the snow. I LOVE the snow and winter and Kansas but also… I’m excited to soak up some sunshine and see the ocean for the first time. I can’t wait to write a post about it for you all and for our next issue of &/Both which is scheduled to drop by the end of February! If you haven’t picked up our Fall issue, yet, for a limited time only it’s 40% off.
Favorite things this month:
Songs: Live by Billie Marten, Winterbreak by MUNA, Goodbye, Goodbye by Tegan and Sara
Snacks: Honeycrisp apples and hot chocolate
TV Show: Alone Together which is too accurate to my college experience and it’s oddly comforting?
Podcast: Forever 35 is the perfect podcast when you’re a little bit burned out on the news and politics and learning about serial killers and you just want to hear two best friends talk about serums and face masks.
Okay friends, those were just a few of my most favorite parts of January 2018. What were some of yours?? Leave them in the comments section or on Facebook.
