Weekly Wrap-Up

In the chaos of everyday life, it’s easy to lose sight of what really matters, and I can use my habits to make sure that my life reflects my values. —Gretchen Rubin


Gretchen Rubin. Well, we love her every week. But as tomorrow is National Ditch Your New Year's Resolutions Day (yeah, it's really a thing), we're feeling a little extra adoration for Gretchen as she swoops in to save us from ourselves once again. Better Than Before has been in our stack of books for a while now and mid-January seems likes the perfect time to move it to the top. 

Book Swaps. We may or may not be book hoarders. Marie Kondo would say there's no may about it. We can see that we're in for a bit of quibble with her as we approach the book category in our decluttering nightmare...er, mission...but throwing a party like this (or this) might make parting with some books a little less painful. Maybe.

Cozy cabins. We're dreaming of hiding away in one of these with our stack of books. And lots of hot cocoa and food of course. Yes, lots of food.

The stars aligning. As they did last week when we found ourselves in the same state as each other, along with another dear friend, and able to spend an afternoon laughing, talking, shopping, and laughing some more. And eating glorious food at Eva's Bakery. May the stars align more often.


Reports of real progress in our decluttering. Really.
