Sayonora, January

Two blog posts in a week! I'm on a roll. January came in and out in a blur, but a good blur. January was a productive, energetic and happy month. When you live in snow country, that is saying a lot. Of course, January was mild compared to our February weather so maintaining my enthusiasm for winter has been a challenge.

January highlights:

Completing: {well, almost completing} three journaling projects that have been hanging over my head for months

Racing: Pinewood Derby cars (three this year)

Reading: The Interestings (**), Lean In (***), The Goldfinch (**), Where'd You Go Bernadette (****), The Tiger Wife (in process)

Traveling: first work trip of the year under my belt and my second one planned

Recovering: from the shock of the cost of having two kids in braces before the end of the year.

Decluttering: coats, mittens, gloves, socks

Collecting: all the books for Ella's Battle of the Books Challenge

Planning: an exciting overseas adventure in May

Reserving: all the Academy Award nominated movies

Remembering: a fun first ski weekend in Vail

Finding: a library book that has been missing for a month

Celebrating: Nick getting a new job

Wondering: how two of us working from home will shake out

Enjoying: Frozen, the Broncos, Uncle K's ski visit, girl scout cookies.

Moving: a lot. I kicked up my exercise routine. The kids joined me with Cross Fit and Nick has been
working to implement a new workout routine as well.

Growing: through drama/musical after school clubs

Mapping: our summer travel and camp adventures. it's hard to believe it is already that time of year.

Exploring: Denver at our first family outing to the Nuggets game
