For a vacation! Especially after reading Anne’s post about her plans for 2017. August 2015 was our last true vacation (because I don’t consider two nights in a cabin an hour from our house then a night by ourselves in Cleveland a vacation) when we went out to San Francisco to see family. This picture was Jacob’s first visit to the ocean when the whole family stayed just north of the city for the weekend and looking back on this picture, the hiking path through a lot of sand while taking turns carrying a heavy non walking 9 month old was so worth it to see this beach we practically had to ourselves.
I wish I could say I was packing for that vacation I said I was jonesing for, but unfortunately the only packing being done around here this month has been of the Christmas decorations and sending them back down to the basement.
My girls! There’s a group of 3 of us who are childhood friends and all live in the same city now. Two of us have little ones who turned 2 within 2 months of each other, and the third just had a baby the beginning of January so we’ve had plenty of group messages covering the topics of labor, surviving life with a newborn, and coordinating food deliveries. It’s been a really fun time (says the one just witnessing that stage of motherhood, not going through it 😉 – haha!).
Ever since they made the policy change to allow jeans all the time permanent at work, I swear all I’ve been wearing is jeans or black jeggings. I’m getting a little sick of denim, but not so sick of it that I’m willing to put on the tights that would be needed to wear a dress or a skirt. So in the meantime, I’m happy to have this flare style to break up all the skinny cut jeans. to mix it up.
So vain, but the length of my hair. After it all of a sudden hitting an awkward length, I made an appointment and had it cut a little bit shorter again. I don’t think anyone even noticed, but to me it’s such a huge difference and it feels so much better!
