It’s been a great start to 2015!

Hello everyone!  I am joining the Let’s Grow Together in a link up hosted by my blend Miriam over at Farm Girl.  If you love fashion, farm animals and a witty sense of humor, you should check out her posts.

Today is Wednesday.  Two weeks ago was New Years Eve. We are currently smack dab in the middle of January.  How crazy is that? I passed my 3rd anniversary of my healthy(er) lifestyle change on the 8th. Dan and I celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary in exactly 2 weeks. Time is flying by!  Despite the freezing January temperatures and this head cold that I caught when I came back to this germ fest of an office, the past couple weeks have been good to me.

If you follow me on Instagram, you would see that I am back to doing my yoga challenges after taking the month of December off.  Boy did I miss them!  I won a prize in the first week! I am planning a blog post on that soon.  I have tried “new to me” poses~ some with success, some that need a lot of work… And have come to the conclusion that even if I never master arm balances that’s ok.  I have not given up on them. I am just not stressing over them either.

I am continuing on my path to becoming a minimalist. I first wrote about the urge to purge back in July ’14. I am not going to sell my house and move into something that’s 200 square feet.  Let’s be rational here! Actually rational minimalism is a thing and what I aspire to be.  I am happy in my 2000 sq ft home.  I think, because of my lack of sentimental attachments, we actually have less then the average couple living in a 3 bedroom house in suburbia. However, the things I do have are just sitting in boxes and storage containers that have not been seen since we moved 6 years ago.  Why am I holding on to it? I see a large yard sale in my future! Does 70-80’s Tupperware hold their value?  Hmmm….

I miss running.  I miss it a lot.  It is just way to cold in the mornings to get me out there and it’s not light out long enough after work to go to the park.  The bright side is that is still a little light out at 5:15PM which is when I would get out to run anyway. So I have approx. 6-8 weeks to go and I will be happy again.

Is it just me or are there a ton of great movies out right now?  And so many of them are true life stories which I LOVE!  So far this year, we have ween Unbroken, The Imitation Game and The Gambler ( not a true story ).  We are planning to go back again this weekend to see some others.

Also, this month I decided to join another blend, Sarah for a blogger book club! I have never belonged to a book club before.  Every month there is a theme for the book you should read… no one picks the book for you. This is what sold me on this actually. There is still plenty of time to jump on board for this month if you want.  Your “book report” is due the last day of the month and link your blog with the rest of the group. This month we are looking at motivational books.

So, that is my two weeks in a nutshell. Tell me… how has the start of 2015 been for you?

Stay happy and healthy my friends!

    I’m always super impressed by your yoga moves. Congrats on 20 yrs. ours is this year too. Crazy how that happens huh?

    • That’s awesome! Congrats on your 20 years too! Yoga and running keep me sane. I cant imagine not have both in my life. You daily photos make me want to fet out there!

  2. Thanks for the amazing introduction!!! I’m honored. I also just got what blend is – blog friend! Couldn’t figure it out for a while. Duh!
    That book club sounds so good, I just signed up for it! I love the freedom of it with having a theme instead of a certain book. Such a cool idea!
    I hope the weather will be unseasonably warm in your neck of the woods so you can start running early. Congrats on 3 years of living healthy and 20 years of marriage, two amazing milestones!

    • I am so excited that you joined the book club! Sarah is awesome. You would probably like her blog too. Add to the milestones – Dan and I both turn 40 this year! Lots of celebrating!

  3. I am always impressed by your yoga poses on IG- I am terrible at yoga! There really are a ton of great movies out right now, I am dying to see Unbroken- I read the book and it was amazing!
