Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Taking Stock

DSC_0655 Does anyone else remember the survey craze that swept through the internet during the early days of social media? I'm not sure what started it all, but I would fill them out constantly. I saw this on Sydney's blog and thought it would be fun to take stock at different stages of the year. 

Making : no-knead bread. Cooking : split pea soup. Drinking : water. I try to have a glass next to me at all times. Reading : Sense and Sensibility. It's a goal of mine to read more classics that should have already been read. Wanting : warmth. Looking: at Pinterest for New York City travel tips. Playing: Kye Kye's new album. Wasting: time! (why must you be so addicting, Pinterest!) Wishing: the adult acne needs to go, seriously. Enjoying: pillow talk. Waiting: for our heat to be fixed?! It's been a long few weeks with a finicky heater (landlord is currently problem-solving). Liking: my new coconut oil moisturizer. I think it's actually helping my skin. Wondering: what this year will hold for our family. so many dreams and aspirations. Loving: my husband.  Hoping: for peace. Marvelling: at how God works in my life even when I'm not looking. Needing: grace, for myself and others. Smelling: like my Davines shampoo. Wearing: sweatpants and a blanket. Following: the weather. It appears that another Polar Vortex is upon us. Noticing: blessings. so many blessings. Knowing: that tomorrow is a new day. Thinking: about playing tennis again once it warms up! Feeling: the need to purge and organize my life, pantry, wardrobe, home, etc. Bookmarking: photography tips. Opening: mail. Sadly most of it is junk. Giggling: at how silly Jordan and I look with ski caps and blankets wrapped around our bodies in the office.

How do you stop and take stock?
