I’ll admit defeat here… the last time we did our Life Lately List for you, it was APRIL 2016! I was so overwhelmed last summer that it fell by the wayside and after years of consistency, I stopped. It’s a new year though… and I’m picking back up. Something about 2017 just feels like I can do it and that I’ll have my act together a little better for you on this here blog. Maybe something to do with not living on the Grey Goose… but we will see right?
January was a VERY full month for us, traveling all over (like usual) and making some big changes in our life. Here are the bullet points:
- We rang in the new year playing board games with our dear friends James and Lauren at Ft Benning Georgia. It was the end of a trip we made out there to see them, which I will never forget. Spending time on an Army base really just hits home the sacrifices that our troops make for us daily and I hope you can get that chance to do so as well since we all need that reminder.
- After Georgia, we headed back to NC to my grandparents farm in Granville County. We actually made the trip specifically because my Papa wanted to do a bread making class with Dan. They spend a good three days making baguettes and boles and chocolate babkas. Carb heaven. If you ever want a loaf or bread, ask Dan because he really enjoyed it!
- A short trip back to the OBX to recoup and then we hopped in the car to head to Vermont for Krissy and Greg’s winter wedding at the Mountain Top Inn! I’m stoked to share some sneak peeks with you guys on social media. It was adorbs and a perfect way to start off the 2017 wedding season.
- Right after Vermont we drove over to Portland Maine so we could find an apartment!!! If you’ve been around here for a while, you know the saga of us finding the right place. Never having fully unpacked since our move from Boston, we have been looking for just the right spot since then. Finally after YEARS we found a spot that fits just right and we hope to stay until the day we buy a house. We can actually unpack ALL our boxes and make a home for ourselves. We move in Feb 1 you guys! We are going to be settled!
