Happiest Friday! I'm thrilled to be welcoming the weekend because it means NIC IS HOME!!! That in and of itself is something to celebrate, no parenting alone. I don't know what it is about January but I feel like I struggle through it a bit every year. Day after day cooped up inside with a two year old can get to you. Thankfully we have Liam's tumbling class starting back up this next week and a library so close by! Part of my January struggle is just feeling a bit uninspired in all aspects of my life so if you've been missing me around here since January 1st rolled around, that's why.
Holidays are a huge inspiration for me which is probably why we had a jam packed October, November, December followed by a slow January. However, Valentine's Day is right around the corner so up went my Valentine's Day decor this week and a trip to Hobby Lobby for festive heart stickers to make Valentine's Day cards with Liam!
Other than that, a few pictures from January so far and most days look something like this ...
We've gotten quite a bit of snow this winter. More than we've seen here for several years, anyway. Just about the time that it became impossible to lift another shovel full of snow over the accumulated 4 feet mountains on either side of our driveway, we got a huge rainstorm this week that cut it in half. It was definitely a blessing!
A week ago from today it came down all night and all day. Nic was working so I decided to bundle Liam and I up after he woke up from his nap to get a jump start on shoveling the driveway while Liam played. I opened my back door to find this ... SO.MUCH.SNOW. and super heavy! Needless to say, we didn't make it very far before Nic came to our rescue.
We accidentally left behind a phone charger and Liam's bunny that he sleeps (the necessities of life) when we were staying at my mom's for Christmas. Sita (my mom) quickly shipped both back to us and all is now right in the world! Look at the reunion hug, melted my heart!
Twice a week we get to have lunch with Nic at his work and it's a wonder why Liam will never eat the lunch I pack for him anymore. #cafeteriacookies
I figure, if we're going to be stuck inside all of January we might as well get some projects done. I don't necessarily know that he agrees with me (haha) but my handy husband hung our chalkboard sign in our kitchen this week and I already gave it a makeover for Valentine's Day! "Forget butterflies, you give me the whole zoo" Nic Williamson!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! XO
