February is an abbreviated month and yet, I am always astonished at how much gets packed into those twenty-eight short days. There are holidays, family celebrations, school vacations, extracurricular activities and snow ~ lots and lots of snow.
It's amazing that I was able to accomplish as much as I did in such frigid conditions...I am apparently heartier stock than I give myself credit for! My New England bred mother would be very proud!
When I wasn't out and driving about in subzero temperatures, what exactly did I do this February? Well, let's take a look back, shall we?
I began the month with a Valentine craft. I made a Love Banner out of some old puzzle pieces and a few buttons. Ok, ok, I technically published the post on January 31st, but it didn't go out to all of my email friends until February 1st, so I am counting it! I am so rapt with that pretty decoration, it is still hanging in my kitchen!
I am also including it, because around here, February is a month of true love, as my husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary! He even sent me these gorgeous flowers...three dozen red tulips! It's no wonder I love that guy! No, you didn't miss it, the picture was not on my blog, I posted it on Facebook!
Next, I shared my shopping weakness and a great quote. It's one I am trying to live by! I'm all about simple and this philosophy is about as simple as it gets!
I shared my ridiculously simple recipe for beef stew...
and the reason why I needed something warm to eat!
I was pretty crafty, too. I spruced up a tiny corner of my master bedroom.
I also posted a tutorial on how to make a super simple pillow cover and I may have shared a bit too much about my very dysfunctional relationship with my sewing machine. I don't think that we will make the twenty year mark!
Last but not least, have you noticed the subtle new addition to my blog? This month I finally took the leap and added a Hire Me tab to the top of my homepage. I have always wanted to write and this little hobby blog has reawakened my desire, so I have decided to jump into a new career with both feet. I already have a few projects in the works. It's a bit terrifying to put myself out there, but also very exciting!
Wow! Was that really only 28 days?
It seems much longer doesn't it?
