January recap

January wasn't a terribly exciting month. Mostly it was cold. Very cold. Many days the temperature didn't get any higher than the mid 20's, which is kind of uncommon for this area. I actually got so used to it that when it was 35-40 degrees one day I felt like I needed to break out the shorts and flip flops! 

I didn't take very many pictures this month, I definitely want to start taking more photos of every day things, just to remember what certain days were like.  Here are some of the very few photos I did manage to take this month.


 We visited the lake on one of the rare not-so-cold days.

I got this teapot for Christmas and have been using it all month. I love it!

From the one time it snowed this winter.

I got these seeds in the mail and I am beyond excited about them!

I think one of the most exciting things is that January has been my first full month of blogging! It has been a lot of fun and I'm glad I have been able to stay inspired and keep it up.  I have so many future blog ideas and I can't wait to post them!

I am looking forward to February (My birthday month!!) warmer weather and hopefully some gardening :)

    1. Thanks! I filled out that Liebster blog award. Thanks again for nominating me :)

      Google maps is amazing! I love going on "Roadtrips" to other countries using the street view option.
