Montly Review // January 2013

I will say that this month ended up being a good one. I had my personal ups and downs with work and a bit of the winter blues, but by the end things seemed to get back to normal. Visiting the Farm Sanctuary was a huge part of that. Plus, we had some mild weather and took a bike ride. Riding my bike is like an anti-depressant for me. I also plan to get a NEW bike if we get a good tax return. Even though my bike is new, I'm already ready to upgrade. It's the story of being a cyclist. (That's a post for another day.) Let's take a look at what happened in January on the blog....

These were all my favorite posts, minus our trip to the farm sanctuary.
Of course that was the best thing I did this month!
If you missed it, you can read about it HERE.

I also shared one of my favorite recipes over on Kitty & Buck! A recipe for Chickpea Tacos. YUM!
My blog got yet another makeover. I wasn't happy with the color scheme and I craved more simplicity.
The writing in the header is my own handwriting and I love the way it turned out.
I started a new series on the blog called COLOR OF THE MONTH. You guys seemed to like it.:)

So what do I have planned for February?
I have a DIY painting project to share, hopefully more outfit posts, probably cute pet photos, recipes, hopefully paint my home office and I have a great idea for a "vegan project" that I hope to do.
We'll see....
Thanks for hanging around!


  1. I love that map heart :D I would want to do that with an old map of Southern Cali, where I was born :)

    1. I didn't know you were born in California. How cool.
