Welcome to February. The month of hearts, love, groundhogs, presidents, and chocolate! Who would have imagined:)
Last Tuesday I promised a follow-up to my post regarding happiness. That post was about sabotaging our happiness and I wanted to offer a couple of ways to encourage, or foster, our happiness. However, in order to join this monthly link-up, I am reflecting on things “currently” in my life. The happiness encouragement will continue next Tuesday. For sure:)
That said, around here, I am currently:
LOVING – this weather! I am not usually one to chat/talk about the weather (it somehow seems lame to me) but I have to admit the weather genuinely affects me. My energy, my mood, my productivity, and my attitude. It’s no secret I don’t really like winter, but that is because I struggle with it. I suppose our feelings are mutual – winter does not like me either! But our winter lately has felt more like early spring. It has been wonderful – and I have felt all the better for it! Yesterday, I spent the day outside. In February. I know….amazing!!
EMBRACING – to be honest, not much. I almost deleted this prompt – ha. Let’s just say, I am not a hugger. Or an embracer. And for all you huggers out there…this might be a good time to rethink your personal boundaries. Just sayin:)
TASTING – chocolate – dark chocolate to be extra picky/specific – in just about anything. But, especially, in my morning mug. The valentine inspired coffee flavors lately have not disappointed. By the way, add a chocolate drizzled biscotti and life is just about perfect:)
WEARING – all the dresses. Have you noticed the popularity of dresses lately? Count me in. I love the convenience of dresses and the styles of late are super cute. But I usually think of dresses as warmer weather wear; however, there are plenty of long-sleeved and heavier material options now. I have added (more than just) a couple to my closet!
PREPARING – for the Valentine’s banquet (something ahead). The supplies have been bought and the plan is in place. I am excited to see it all come together next week. How do you plan to celebrate Valentine’s Day? I suppose it is a commercialized holiday – but, have fun, and use the excuse to share some love! And to eat all the (dark) chocolate!!
