Happy February! I've reflected on the past month, the start to 2013 and thus far I think I've been very good. Most years I have resolutions and like most, I rarely stick to them for more than 2 weeks. This time, I've been good with both of my resolutions: eating healthy and writing a favorite moment from everyday.
I must admit that all of our new items from our registry and this new organized kitchen cart have definitely helped persuade me to be in the kitchen more often. I really think we're close to fighting over who gets to cook dinner because S has been cooking more often than he ever has. I too will find any excuse to chop a tomato or brew a cup of coffee.
Our top two meals lately include:
- caprese with tomatoes, mozzarella, arugula, and balsamic
- guacamole with lots of lime, onion, and cayenne pepper
One of our new favorite things is something we adopted from my aunt and uncle. We'll make a big batch of guacamole for dinner, grab a bag of chips, and sit down in front of a good movie on Netflix. Lately we've been watching a lot of documentaries like First Position about a ballet competition, Man on Wire about a French tight rope walker walking across the Twin Towers, and Make Believe about young magicians. It's so inspiring to watch people perfect their craft and be entirely dedicated to their passions.
January is my favorite month, mostly because it''s my birthday month. It was so good this year that I'm a little sorry to say goodbye to it already, but at the same time I am so looking forward to what February brings. The fact that January sped by without so much as a moment to stop and appreciate it, I'm going to try and appreciate my last semester of college before it's gone forever.
