I have a bad tendency to wish away the weeks and months that I don't particularly enjoy. January, with its return to reality after the indulgent holiday season and the still freezing temperatures, is often a serious contender. So, in an effort to focus on the positive, this year I decided that, at the end of each month (or in this case, the beginning of the next one!), I will write about the things I loved that defined the way I spent the majority of my time, because I have a feeling that each month - no matter how cold, short or busy - comes with its own magical moments.
Avocado and buckwheat: In January I realized just how much I have changed my eating habits - for the better, thankfully! A year ago, these two foods were non-existent in my diet, and now they are two favourites that show up in my meals almost every day.
Yarn: Having had more time to spend at home, January was a great opportunity to start doing some of the things I've been dreaming about, and one of them - in which I delved full force these past few weeks - was knitting. Going through the yarns that I have at home, looking at pattern ideas, starting new projects and planning for even more kept this hobby - and the cozy goodness that is yarn - on my mind the entire month.
I'd love to know, how did you spend your January?
