January Highlights

Well everyone, January is gone like Donkey Kong. We are progressing full speed into 2015 and I am so happy for it! The dude & I have many exciting things on the horizon and it’s only a matter of getting through time before we can get to them 🙂 Thankfully January was much less hectic as November and December, but it was still pretty busy! Our days have been filled with schoolwork, plan making, and new adventures such as attending the Financial Peace University – that’s right, we’re working on our New Years Goals!

The Photos

→ Mucking about in downtown Raleigh can be quite rewarding when you’ve got that morning light that I like goin’ on.

→ Working on those minimalism goals and my insta-photography is hard – but quite rewarding! I need to break out my camera more often but a phone is so handy sometimes.

→ This was a month of less than healthy food – moreso than December somehow! Our newest tradition is cheese fries at Denny’s after church (or Jesus & Cheese Fries, if you prefer). Since we attend the early service we beat the crowds!

Well, that’s all folks. January has moved on and so must I…or at least I need to go work on some Marketing notes.

What did you get around to reading and doing in January?

Wishing you Disneyland parades and cute circus barkers,

Shantelle
