February was a month that I really felt as though I had a good routine. I began to feel as though I was managing grad school work easier with full-time work. I enjoyed the simple things like wearing my favorite sweatshirt on my days off and making chai lattes in the morning.
This past month I enjoyed some really great products, read a great mystery book, and maintained some sort of organization with the use of my daily planner. I am sharing with you the items I enjoyed using or used the most this month.
One thing I have learned about myself last year is how much I really enjoy cooking. It definitely is a confidence booster when it is a meal that everyone really enjoys. I am always looking for new recipes to try that more importantly is healthy and easy.
I would love to say that this was a good reading year for me… which in some ways it was! I didn’t read as much as I thought I would have during quarantine time but I did read some really amazing books that I had on my list.
I love fall! I say it every year and the feelings never change. Growing up in New England the change of season brings so much excitement for the fall fashion, the comfort foods, baked goods, and cozy experiences. I put together a list of things that I plan to do this season and some things that you will enjoy too!
I remember jump roping as a kid was one of my favorite activities. In middle school, I learned how to double dutch which became one of my favorite activities to participate in during breaks. Now as an adult I have come back to it and realized that it honestly is a really good workout. It gets the whole body moving and heart racing.
I’ve been taking a lot of time to reflect on the little things that have brought me many moments of happiness. I enjoyed being able to slow down for a bit to really appreciate the privileges that I often take for granted. It is sometimes the simplest moments that bring you a sense of gratitude and content. Today, I share with you a few moments which have brought me pure joy over the last few months at home and still do to this day.
For many couples, over the last few months have been a new test for their relationship. For some of you who are like me, not living with your boyfriend (or partner) it may have begun to feel as though we are in a long-distance relationship, so keeping connected could’ve been a new challenge as going out was less frequent. While others who do live with their significant other may have learned new things that they hadn’t before. Today Mara talks to us about her experience of going from a LDR to quarantining with her boyfriend over the last four months.
It has been two years since Mara and I walked across the stage to receive our diploma! We congratulate anyone who has recently graduated from college, grad programs, and even high school during this time!! We know that we were lucky to experience the excitement of commencement and wanted to share part of our experience with you as well as our thoughts now that we have been graduated for a few years.
