Well, dang! I guess you could say I had my own little winter break there for a minute. I took a partially intentional/partially unintentional month-long break. I was planning to take about a week or so off from blogging so that I could be with my family in Michigan after my grandfather passed away, but it turned into a longer hiatus when I realized I had to re-prioritize some things in my life. The end of the year can be so crazy and I think it’s so important to head into a new year and a new season with clarity and some fresh perspective, so I’d say the break was more than necessary for me.

Speaking of the year coming to an end… when did that happen?! I can’t believe it’s mid-December. I’m afraid to blink. Although the sun setting slightly after 4pm has been a huge downer, I am happy to spend more time at home with a cup of hot chocolate and a good Netflix show. I think some quiet, cozy time is good for my mental health.

These photos were taken a couple weeks ago when Steve and I paid our first visit to Mockingbird. We had been hearing so many rave reviews about it since it opened that had to grab some brunch there when we had a day off together. Ya’ll.. it was so good. Everything from the food to the service to the decor. It’s one of the most beautifully decorated restaurants in town, in my opinion.

I’m going to get cracking on my 2018 bucket list because I’d really like to make some big accomplishments in the new year. 2017 was huge in so many ways and I want to continue to raise the bar.
