January was a month of intensity. There was happiness, there was stress, and there was a lot of mixed emotions. I am glad that it was a month full of accomplishment and I hope to continue down that path as 2018 progresses. While I enjoyed January, I am hopeful that February will be kinder to me in terms of making time for rest and reflection. Even in the midst of my busiest days, having this page dedicated to gratitude helped me see the beauty I have been blessed with.

TUES JAN 9: I spent the day with a good friend and I was able to divulge in the city life; visiting the Renwick gallery, a coffee shop, and a burger joint.
