“In February, one can taste the full joys of anticipation. Spring stands at the gate with her finger on the latch.”

Happy Friday, friends! February has arrived, and with it (besides my above dreams of pastels, shedding of some layers, and sun leaks galore) brings apparently  –flash flood warning– rain. I just checked the weather as I draft this, and my said dreams are a little crushed, but it’s okay! Although it looks like it could end up being a wet month, I am going to choose to see the sun through it all.

It’s the last few drops of winter, so take advantage of your sweater collection and getting organized at home. Spring really does breath new life into the world, so it’s an exciting arrival to look forward to and plan for. I am still cleaning out my closet and drawers (in case you missed it, I sell on Depop! More added this week) and plan to do a final sweep of my kitchen, too!

This month is a pretty slow one for me. Matt is still in busy season, so working 12+ hour days in the office and on Saturday’s too. I pretty much have been taking the time to reboot after the holidays and our trip last month. I have to say, if you are in a slump or not feeling your best… check in on your diet. The last 2.5 weeks I have been making my meals at home and eating clean. Making sure that each meal is packed with the nutrition I need. Drinking tons of water, and eating healthy snacks throughout the day. I have been reading more, working out, and just letting each day unfold without putting too much on my plate. I can’t tell you how much of a difference these things make. I am so happy, energetic, which all leads to better work, better attitude, and overall better days.

I shared this post recently about healthy lifestyle rituals, and also this post on the current smoothies I am obsessed with. Which I’ve been making for breakfast every morning and are so delicious and good for you. January was just the wellness dose I needed, and good habits are formed so I am feeling good!

A few other things I am looking forward to in February…

fun wedding planning details
weekly pilates classes, back into my groove!
taking advantage of blue skies and sunshine when they show up
taking notice of flowers beginning to bloom

bringing my camera with me more for on the go shots
Valentine’s Day = pizza and wine at home, so always down

I hope you have an amazing month ahead! xx
