I've always liked writing this sort of post, since it creates accountability. Sharing my goals with you guys (and simply the act of writing them down), makes it more likely for me to follow through with them!
This month, I'll keep it short and sweet:
1) Blog more. I miss taking pictures with my "big girl camera" and writing down bits and pieces of our life. I don't intend to be strict about a schedule or anything like that, but I definitely want to get back into the habit of blogging.
2) Exercising! This one has been said a million times by me and by everybody else. However, I need to make a conscious effort and try. One day I'll find something I enjoy and will stick to a routine.
3)Shop goals: Spring sale and new spring line! Items that are ready-to-ship will have their price reduced down a lot, so it will be a good way to stock on things for next year. And I'm really excited about the spring line! It is all made with this really soft light yarn, so perfect for the little ones. I'll post more about them soon.
PS: This month I'm planning on finally getting to a blog redesign and a change of name. I'm not a newlywed anymore, so it doesn't feel quite right. So don't get scared if you see everything looks different. The old url will redirect to the new one :)

This year, we wanted to get away for our anniversary (since it usually falls on President's day weekend), but we didn't want to go far. It had been a while since we had been to Napa, so we thought the long weekend would be a good opportunity to do so.
The weather was so nice and even though the wineries were crowded because of the holiday, it was a perfect weekend. We got some free stuff when we happened to mention it was our anniversary, like these "shots" of wine served in a chocolate cup and the red champagne you see above (sorry about the lipstick marks and fingerprints!).
Now, can we just address the fact that M and I have been married for a whole THREE years? It feels like so long and not long at all, at the same time. I can't go on about marriage too much here. This might turn into the mushiest post ever. So, here, happy 3 years, my love! It's been an amazing journey and I can't wait for the adventures that await for us!

The weather has been so nice this January. Last weekend we went out in shorts and went exploring. The trees and plants seem to be a little confused by the weather, but it was fun regardless. We finished the day with a cold glass of wine, which was so nice and refreshing.
Even though 70 degree weather is great in the middle of winter, we are really praying for rain. As I'm sure you know, California is going through a crazy drought right now. So please, send some of the cold of the midwest this way, please? I don't think Californians have ever wished for rain like they do now.
