I think every year when February rolls around I am always so surprised about how fast January passed by. January is a weird month. I feel like October, November and December are so jam-packed with events, family gatherings and other plans that then when January comes around its just so oddly uneventful. The beginning of January was actually quite nice. We still had some family in town from the holidays and it was really fun to be able to spend as much time with them as we could before they went back home. Then the middle of January hit we just had no plans. Then towards the end of January H and I both got these miserable colds that floored us and pretty much glued us to the couch. We actually still have them but hallelujah I feel like we’re at the end of it.
February is a very welcome new month. I’m really excited to work on goals I’ve made for myself and to really push myself to be better. My word for 2017 is KINDNESS and I’m not saying I was mean in January, but there were definitely a lot of times in January when I could have pushed myself a little harder to be a little kinder. I’m actually genuinely excited to be a kinder person the rest of this year.
February is such a fun month. I’m a hopeless romantic. I love the ooey gooey romance stuff, the cheesy sentiments, the cards, the decorations, the colors and all that jazz. we don’t necessarily have anything planned for this month, but truthfully those are some of the months I like most. Its nice to not have any commitments and to be able to spend time together as a family at home and to be able to do some spontaneous things.
I can’t put my finger on the reason why, but I’m just really excited for this month. I hope its a great month for me and my family and I hope its a great month for you and yours.
