Reading: I feel like I have been abandoning books left and right. I'm currently reading Imagine Heaven by John Burke, and I'm not jazzed about it. I really love hearing about the experiences people have during their near death experiences, but this book is just all over the place. I already have another book at hold on at the library. What to do...?

Watching: Well Andrew and I zipped through The OA on Netflix - a show about a women who's story revolves around near death experiences. Are you sensing a theme here? We are also sooooo far behind on The Walking Dead. I just feel like we have no time for tv - at least when we are together. 

Listening to: Andrew and I are going to the Johnnyswim concert later this week, and they have been on repeat lately. 

Thinking about: I've been trying to have a new experience each month. In January, I got a chemical peel (it was just okay). In February, I took a calligraphy class (way harder than I thought it would be). I'm excited to try something new each month, and I'm excited to see where the year takes me!

Loving: I have been working hard to finish Cora's quilt. I really, really want to have it done before her first birthday. There is still so much to do, but I keep thinking about how this can be something she can keep for years to come! So with each finished block, I love it a little bit more. 

Looking forward to: Fish fry is right around the corner! I'm excited to take Cora to her first one. I'm even going to have a shirt made for her! Oh, I can't wait. 

Making me happy: Cora is learning something new all of the time! She is growing up so fast, and while it makes me happy to see her grow, it also makes each moment a little bit sweeter. Don't get me wrong, we have our struggles. There are days and nights where I need a break, and she just doesn't want to cooperate. But I find myself taking small snapshots of the sleepy snuggles and goofy antics.
