The chilly days are numbered and the sun makes a daily appearance instead of playing peek-a-boo and as the first month of the year comes to a close- already!- I can’t help wondering how quickly this year will also race on by. No longer do 24 hours in a day seem to be nearly enough. I have yet to pick up my child psychology course which I left behind a year back and haven’t glanced at since.
I cannot, however, say that this first month was unsuccessful in keeping with my goals. Let’s hope from today onwards I can cram more into a day.

Since I’m going to have to forego making this flavorful pasta for hubs and me since we’re still out of town, I’m going to ask you to put it together for us.
The past ten days have been an absolute blur! When I think back all I can remember are flashes of moments that include card & board games on repeat and cooking with my two little nieces every afternoon.
It’s wonderful to cook with kids, but you really gotta remember to always keep a lot of free time ahead, especially if you’ve got a meticulous little angel, like my youngest niece, who’s full of a million and one questions.
