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

Currently / / January ^ My daily sidekick.

The beginning of January already feels like a breathe of fresh air after a busy December. Jordan and I love watching Phoenix grow and discover new things. So far, five months is a really fun age. This year has so many opportunities and possibilities, I look forward to exploring them further!

Meanwhile, currently in January...

Gathering | Our collection of artwork and wall decor. Jordan and I are discussing and planning where to hang them in our house. Unintentional blank walls leave me feeling unsettled!

Making | My 2017 reading list. I wasn't able to read quite as much as I hoped last year, but I'm ready to get back to it! What books are you reading right now? I'm still working through Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between) by Lauren Graham.

Sipping | Coffee and lots of it. Christmas evening my friend Lauren made delicious Moscow mules which I am still thinking about.

Following | Moms on Instagram. Comparison and social media have the ability to go hand-in-hand but when done right, it also leads to wonderful support. I've had moms reach out and offer a listening ear or answer questions I may need answered. It's nice to follow moms of babies around the same age. It's like a virtual playgroup!

Resolving | In an effort to be intentional while Phoenix sleeps, I resolve to practice yoga three times a week and read two books a month. I'm still working through the specifics of my personal and professional goals for 2017, but I know strengthening my body and quieting my mind benefits all areas of my life.

Yoga with Adrienne is offering a 31 Day Revolution for the month of January. I haven't started it yet, but I'm going to follow the routines to get back into a regular yoga practice.

Linking with Anne and Jessica.
