Currently in January
Currently I Am…
Gathering – All sorts of old clothes and things for donations. I think it’s something about the start of a new year that brings out the “get rid of all the things” monster, but seriously, Nate said the other night we are going to purge all the things and when he’s actually in a mood to go through crap, we have to do strike while the iron is hot. So everything must go!
Making – Plans, plans and more plans for the year. Well ok, not really that much yet. I have January starting to fill in well. I need to start mapping out my plan for running my 5ks and also find my first volunteer opportunity. And we really seriously need to start making plans for a wedding in Nate’s family in May that will require some travel.
Sipping – Coffee as always. I tried a new drink at my beloved Caribou and was mildly disappointed. They took their cold brew and made it hot – so not the same as cold brew. The other day I ended up taking Ollie to Starbucks (I know, my die hard Caribou lovers are going, gasp!) because he just didn’t want to go to Caribou for anything and it got me thinking, this winter we’re going to bust out of our monotonous routine and try a few new to us coffee shops on the weekends. There are so many we have never tried, it’ll be a fun adventure for us.
Following – Twin Cities Collective for Bloggers and Creatives – it’s a relatively new local group that’s working to bring bloggers and creatives together for networking and resources. This week they launched a new website and are hosting a fun Instagram challenge. I’ve already made some new connections and it’s pretty awesome!
Resolving – I will say it. I hate resolutions. I never follow through on them. I prefer goals – I might not meet my goals, but it is something that feels attainable to me. I already kind of discussed my goals in my word of the year post the other day, but in short (or in case you missed it) my goals this year are – get back into exercise, run 5ks, do the triathlon again, volunteer my time, read more books and make sure I’m giving my best to the people around me. Seems pretty simple right? Ha!
