So, it turns out I need knee surgery. I injured my knee a few years ago attempting to be an athlete, and I never got it looked at. When it started occasionally flaring up with pain, my GP told me I probably had mild arthritis. So, I’ve just gone on as usual with an extra sore knee when it rains.

January 2016 Outfits

Thing I learned in January: I really like my new Cole Haan redĀ canvas penny loafers. I wore them A LOT last month. My plan of wearing more dresses even though I’m working at home kind of fell through. I wore dresses twice: once just for fun, once for a dinner out. Which was for the 12th anniversary of my first date with Adam. Twelve years! I’m 36, so that is officially 1/3 of my life.

So much snow, all of the snow. Three days with everyone snowed in at the house. I’ve made chili, I’ve made pizza, I’ve cleaned, we’ve played, we’ve napped. Jonas dropped 20-some-odd inches of snow in our neighborhood, with crazy snow drifts taller than Hannah. It’s been cozy and also frustrating to be so off our routine. But, the snow play has been well worth it.

We had a small little snowstorm on Sunday, but now it’s Friday night and the eastern seaboard is hunkering down for a giant snowstorm worthy of all the nicknames. Jonas, that scamp.

Porchiness is not a word, but let’s just pretend. Here’s my fall porchscape (pretty sure this is also not a word, but see if I care). Some of these mums and pumpkins have fallen on hardĀ times since I took these photos a few weeks ago, but it is still so seasonal out there.

July 2015

It happens every year, without fail. In July and August, I basically wear two outfits and hardly take any pictures. It’s summer, it’s hot, school is out, and we’re busy just doing things. We’ve done tons in July.

I chopped off the back a few weeks ago and made it short for summer. I haven’t cut it this short for a couple of years, and I just felt like having a change. I love it!

I’ve been on a mission to plan more activities with Hannah, and we are having a ball. I made up a kind of lesson plan book for her specifically, because this is just how my brain works best. So, I’ve been loosely planning out our days in it. Not down to the second, but I’ve been planning library days, baking days, etc.

Last week was an absolute BEAR. I came home Monday from work and got sick, and I stayed sick through Friday night. In between bouts of thinking I was better before getting sick again, we had a blizzard. And Hannah and I played in the snow. AND, for the umpteenth time this winter, we snow painted. Which was so incredibly good for my soul.

February 2015 Outfits

I’ve been so sick this week and out of commission since Monday afternoon. I felt somehow inundated and not-quite-myself at work on Monday, which was supposed to be the kickoff to Read Across America at school. We had a delayed opening because of snow and ice, and the day’s events were rescheduled…to Wednesday, when I was home sick with the stomach flu.
