happy {love} february!!

Happy February, Everyone! There is just something so exhilarating about the start of a new month. Maybe that’s just for me because I’m inching months closer to our wedding day, but I always feel accomplished when one month ends and another begins. It’s like “new years” every 30+- days. January was an insane month. Truly. My poor planner for January is completely full of notes and deadlines and projects. But luckily, nearly everything I set out to do got done. I even accomplished some things that weren’t on the list thanks to our unexpected snow day :)

For those of you who don’t know, I went back to my old job at PB. I am not the manager this time, I simply went back as a regular ole’ spa consultant to get a paycheck until May. And it has actually worked out quite nicely. But working crazy hours sure does make for an interesting combo for attempting to get everything done before the big day(s). If all goes according to plan, I will be finished writing the draft for my first novel in March. March, y’all! I can’t believe I’ve actually stuck to it. There really isn’t much more rewarding feeling than actually accomplishing you’ve set your mind to. i love this feeling! So let’s take a look at January’s goals and accomplishments before we launch into the new month!
