Hey, hey and happy Friday!
And just like that—*SNAP*—January 2020 is in the history books. With time flying by so quickly, I’m grateful for my iPhone. Why? Because I can swipe back through the month and get a snapshot of where in the heck it went.
One of my goals for this year was to take a photo of one thing I did every day—that’s NOT FOOD!—just to have a visual history of it. That said, I 100% depend on my phone for noting salads like the one above from one of Park City’s solid casual eateries I’m reworking to put here on the blog. Sorry, I don’t have the recipe yet, but it will be coming soon!
Our phone’s cameras are incredible historians. They’re always at hand, have great quality, and can hold tons of shots we’d never take with a real camera. However, I’ve failed miserably at my daily documenting. But that doesn’t mean I can’t start it up now. Today. On a Friday even! It’s not like we need to have a special day, or beginning of the year to jumpstart something new. We just have to do it.
Like all of us have been reminded this week, time is fleeting, and our lives as we know it can change or end in an instant.
On that note, I have a question.
How are you?
Inspired by one of my weekly blog reads linked below, I want to know how YOU are. I yammer on each week with glimpses into my life, but I don’t know you.
So, how are you doing? I’m taking 100% inspiration from Jo and asking you to share and tell us what you’re thinking about in the comments:
- What you had for breakfast today?
- What you’re reading or watching that we should be too?
- Something you’re worried about?
- Tell us something you’re looking forward to?
Come on now. Don’t be shy. PLEASE leave a comment. I KNOW there are thousands of you reading this post, so don’t make me feel like I’m living in a silo with only voyeurs who come to visit. Join the conversation. The comments are always the most fun.
But enough about me—let’s keep talking about you, and dig into this week’s Friday Faves.
Happy almost February. Your monthly horoscope is here.
