We are approaching the last month of the year. What?! How has this happened?! It’s the oddest thing how time simultaneously goes by slowly yet quickly. I’m looking forward to continuing to celebrate the holiday season.
Friday Favorites 12.17.21

2020: Lost a lot but we gained more
2020, it’s been a strange year. Ups and downs. Toilet paper and meat shortages (which, PSA, you can survive off zero meat, folks, but zero TP, I don’t want to try).

Pfeiffer Turns Two
Pfeiffer enjoyed the tradition I have of celebrating her birthday all month long. She loved it! She’s continued to ask, “it’s my birthday month?”, in which of course I know how to tell her it’s October.

A Happy Mother’s Day
Celebrating Mother’s Day 2020 and rereading this great book my mom gave me when I was pregnant, Motherhood: 55 Reflections on What It Means to Be a Mom. I could highlight almost every quote in the book but picked a few to share with y’all today. Enjoy!
