leaving flowers

the other day i was walking around a cemetery and was struck by all of the flowers i saw - how, on any given day, someone’s leaving flowers for someone they loved or someone they lost.

happy new year! if you read my previous post about books to read by new year’s then you know i am a big fan of Gretchen Rubin and the way she views happiness (we are both type A so we love to plan it out haha). she had mentioned in a podcast how rather than do resolutions, she creates lists of things to accomplish by the end of the year, and how she finds that to be easier to obtain as opposed to trying to start 12 new daily habits on January 1st. i thought i would try it out this year :)

i cannot believe it’s already december!! this year has absolutely flown by. anyone else excited for the new year?

so when i was visiting family last week, i kept getting asked about my little blogging project and what i’ve learned from it. my main reaction was to say “a lot,” but i kept thinking about it later on and trying to formulate a better answer.
