What I loved (and didn’t) this January

What I loved (and didn’t) this January

Can I be honest? I hate January. A lot, actually. I don’t care much for winter, and we’ve had the most horrible inversion this year in Northern Utah. Our air quality has been in the red “unhealthy” zone for far too many days this month. I’m happy to see it go.

With that said, however, there were still plenty of great things going on this month.

Like spending time with this little monkey.


Seriously, the girl climbs on everything. I’m always amazed at her movement abilities. She knows how to make her dancer mom proud (and terrified).

I’ve also been loving some of the recipes from the book IndulgeOh yum. If you haven’t checked it out yet, do so now!


And some of my favorite posts on TYB from this past month include:
