Our Month In 9 Squares – January 2017

Dear January, 

Thank you for bringing a month of change! I always look forward to creating new goals, spending time planning and dreaming about the future and wishing for what is to come with the new year.  2017 is going to be a fabulous year!

We started the month off with a couples-only snowy vacation to reconnect and kick 2017 off on the right foot, and then spent the rest of the month focusing in on our family. My hope for the month was simplicity so that is just what I did; simplified, organized, relaxed and recouped from a busy 2016.

You were a dreamy month January, but now I am ready for all the LOVE that February brings!

Our Month In 9 Squares – December 2016

Dear December, 

And just like that, the holidays are over.  December was a festive month filled with wonderful Christmas adventures, and it was extra special sharing it with our sweet girls, (You know what they say, the holidays are magical when shared with little ones, and I couldn’t agree more!)

We celebrated the birth of Jesus, ate our body weight in Christmas cookies, sang our little holiday hearts out, watched every Hallmark Christmas movie possible and of course enjoyed bundling up for the cooler weather.  December is my favorite month of the year, not just because of all of the fun activities the month brings, but because of the joyful spirit in the air and all of the family time and memories made each year.  December you will be greatly missed.

As I pack up the Christmas decorations and close the door on December, I excitedly anticipate the new fun times ahead as we ring in a new year and welcome the adventure that will be 2017.

Our Month In 9 Squares – November 2016

Dear November,

Thank you November for finally bringing cooler weather to Arizona! Fall has been lovely, but your chilly winter weather has really added a festive touch to the month. You were a month filled with thankfulness and gratitude and we loved sharing Thanksgiving traditions with the girls. But, with open arms and eager hearts, we welcome you December!!! Bring on all of the holly jolly Christmas spirit and let us not forget the real reason for the season ahead, the birth of Jesus!

Goodbye pumpkin spice and hello peppermint mocha. ☕️
