Revive is my favorite (MLM free) place to get essential oils! I'm a huge fan, and one thing I like to treat myself to is the quarterly subscription box. Each box contains $75 worth of product, and is usually seasonally curated. 


Blake and I got away for a quick weekend to visit his mom and dad. Before I started packing, I checked the weather forecast and SURPRISE 100% chance of snow. ❄ We both hadn't seen snow in years, so that was very unexpected. Fortunately, the snowfall happened in the middle of our trip, so it didn't impact our travel days at all.

Mostly, we just hung out by the fireplace, watched movies, and drank hot chocolate - but we did get out and explore a little bit too! 
When I get dressed in the morning, I really feel like the finishing touch is spritzing on a little fragrance. In high school, I wore Hollister Co. perfume which was a unisex fragrance - and I LOVED it. They discontinued it, so I swear I rationed those last few sprays forever before I ran out for good. For graduation, I was gifted Brittney Spears Curious perfume and also really loved that scent! In fact, if I smell it today it brings me right back to 2008. 
I'm rounding out 2021 with a total of 102 books finished! This breaks every record for me. It wasn't even the fact that we were experiencing a global pandemic with loads of time at home. I barely read 40 books in 2020, and this year was almost normal times level busy. I've it narrowed down to a few suggestions I have for you today, in case you'd like to read more books this year! 
If you and I were having coffee today, this is what I'd be talking about! Recently, I've been:
Coming at you today with a ton of Book recommendations! There are some just OK reads here, but also more than one 5 Star books for you to bookmark.
I wouldn't consider these new year resolutions, but like everyone else I do start to think about ways to improve this next year. In the last quarter of 2021 I learned something about myself (well, maybe just noticed it for the first time). It started when I began using Duolingo to learn Spanish. The app has a way to keep track of your 'streak' of days you log on. I found that I really really did not (and still don't) want to break that streak. It's really motivating to keep it going. Plus, the streak keeps going even if I just do a few minutes on the app. So, I noticed that picking up a little habit and doing it everyday is very motivating for me. Going forward, I'm going to pay attention to that tendency when I try to pick up a new skill or habit.
It might be that the year is winding down, or it might be how I've been feeling mentally, but I'm in a big reflective mood. And, when I get in moods like this, I start zeroing in on ways I want to improve or things I want to change. This week, I've been in a big decluttering mode, and thought I'd share a few ways I've been decluttering my digital life.
