mid-week round-up

What’s new in your lives, loves? Are you in the POLAR VORTEX? I was secretly very excited to get snow yesterday (all the businesses and schools closed the night before!) but it was a false alarm and we only got the cold. My Whole30 and 30 days of Yoga with Adriene are winding down and I’ll be sad to see these January routines go. Any ideas for fun challenges to undertake in February? Also, I finished this book (book club posts coming SOON) and am diving head first into Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver. Have you ever read anything by Kingsolver? She’s my absolute favorite. Stay warm out there today, and enjoy a little reading material on me…

  1. I’d never really thought about how the change in interior design has contributed to the noisiness of restaurants. My favorite Chinese place is far too loud to ever take our baby so I guess we’ll be doing lots of takeout from now on. It suffers from this trend of hard surfaces and high ceilings as mentioned in the article.
