I took this cover photo on Thursday, but it’s pretty deceiving because holy cow, it is COLD right now! My brother and sister-in-law live in Minnesota, so I guess I can’t complain… but it was a high of 9 degrees today and is currently only 1.

I’ve found that waiting to set my goals until the middle of the month actually eliminated some of the unhealthy expectations and resolutions I might have otherwise set on January 1st… I know I can’t hope to achieve any “do this every day” goals when January is already almost over, ha!
