It’s funny how January felt like it was mostly routine days but in actuality there were a handful of big events. Sugarface and I rang in the New Year dressed up at a New Year’s Eve wedding in Arkansas. I had never seen him look so handsome in a tux before! We spent the first few days of the year in Arkansas and enjoyed some quality time with his parents. The dogs got to do some exploring too. Shortly after getting back from Arkansas, we celebrated our first anniversary by watching Die Hard and eating dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. I also made one of his favorite meals to celebrate, garam masala pot pie. It’s been such a sweet year.
I’ve been trying to spend more time at home to write and food blog more. So I blogged about a happy hour and making sausage for the first time.
There were awesome chance encounters with memorable strangers this month. I met a man on the elevator named James who had a bag full of lilies. He was traveling soon and didn’t want his flowers to go to waste. He gave me a stem and brightened up my day. I also met Victoria and her sunshiney crew on the streets of downtown giving out free warm hugs.
Finally, we ended the month the same way we started it. Dressed up for a wedding.
Not depicted on Instagram was an oil change date with a dear friend. It was the most fun I had waiting for an oil change. We snacked at McDonald’s and colored our coloring books as we talked for almost 3 hours.
