February In One Word



5 Things That Happened In February:

1. The lovely Margot came to town and I got to get in touch with my inner Anna and pose in her Anna and the French Kiss fauxto. Check it out!
2. Went on a sushi date with Will for Valentine’s Day!
3. Found my new favorite cafe (thanks to the photoshoot with Margot) and now Will and I are hooked. That yummy looking chocolate croissant is from there!
4. I went to NYC for the day for the Dark Days tour and got to see Alexa and Vi again and FINALLY meet Estelle.
5. Will and I started going to a gym (rather than the small free one we had been using at our complex) and strangely I’m enjoying our gym time. Though I cry every time Will makes me do the abs circuit.

Favorite Quote From January

There’s an exaggerated kind of industriousness to their movements, bright and false, like kids pretending to be absorbed in taking notes so the teacher doesn’t call on them. Mom is unscrewing a giant bottle of vitamin pills that gives off a scent like rubber flowers, Dad’s pouring himself a glass of water at the sink, and for the first time since Sukey died I can see us clearly, hovering at the intersection of love and avoidance like lost tourists who can’t decide which road will bring them home.”  — Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith (This quote comes from the ARC  so I’ll have to check against the finished copy when it comes out but gahhh her writing is too beautiful to not share).

What sort of things were noteworthy for you in February? New obsessions? Any new song recs?? Best books you read this month? Gretat posts  I  missed on your blog? Tell me! 🙂
