Around Here: January
Winter is really here! Our walks are much cooler these days. I do not love winter, as there is much less light during the day, however, I enjoy the changing seasons. I am using this time to work steadily on my project, which I hope and plan to finish this year! There is finally some light at the end of this tunnel I have been wading through for some time! Below are some items that have occurred around here in January!
-continuing to work steadily on my long-term photography project, and one portion of the deliverable remains to be completed!
-celebrated Doug’s recent well-deserved promotion! Yay! I am so happy for him.
-working with my Mom to finish planning the final details of my sister’s baby shower! (I found the most adorable baby shower invitations!)
-helping to plan and coordinate a fun summer family trip together near the water.
-burning candles all over the house!
-enjoying date nights with Doug!
-enjoying cooking with Doug and trying new dinner recipes using our slow cooker.

Victory is pictured below during our 2.6 mile walk together at a park near our house this past weekend! She was a trooper and she walked the entire way! We are making progress!
Great photo. She looks more confident and mature. I don’t know how you get everything on your list finished.
