Joys of January

I love January in London. I hear it's a mild winter so far, but I'm ok with that. It's just cold enough to satisfy my Floridian desire for a legit winter and just warm enough that I don't wimp out after 10 minutes outside. It's also been surprisingly sunny this week, which I'm really thankful for. 

I'm also enjoying fewer work hours. In my free time I'm trying to spend less time online and more time taking in everything around me...including the books on my shelves. I've really been enjoying One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. I have to give that book 100% when reading it, otherwise I can't grasp the words' full meaning. But when I do shut everything else out and let it resonate with me it's so worth it. 

Other things I'm lovin about January:
+ Planning, and when not planning, daydreaming, about an anniversary trip to Greece
+ Porridge - I can't stop eating it.
+ The calm of January after the hustle and bustle of December.
+ Hosting Church Life Group at our flat. I like our space full of people.
+  Writing dear ones back home. Especially Lyn

I haven't been taking my camera around much recently, but here are some Instagram snaps

I hope you have a lovely weekend. I'd love to hear what you're up to.

  1. Love this post. How does porridge compare to oatmeal? I just love the sound of it...

  2. Haha, Alicia, it's the same thing. They just call it porridge here. The girls at work laughed when I called it oatmeal. I love the sound of it too.
