February Wrap-Up

February just flew by! We had a week off for Mardi Gras and a few surprise days off because of the weather, so my first month of work has been so short. February has also been filled with SO MANY awesome visits with friends that I've lost touch with during graduate school. Hooray for free time and no more studying!







February in One Word: Reunited (So many catch up sessions with old friends and family!)


My Favorite Memories in February 2015:
  • Super Bowl Sunday supper with Mom and Steph to celebrate Steph's birthday
  • Starting my new career!
  • Celebrating the wedding of a dear college friend
  • Signing up for my very own health insurance, a whole 2 months before I turn 26
  • The most wonderful Valentine's Day
  • A long, productive, relaxing Mardi Gras holiday
  • Coffee date and shop talk with an awesome teacher friend
  • 6 hour catch up session with one of my oldest friends
  • Beginning to plan the wedding!

    Favorite Quote from a Book I Read this Month:


    “This felt like the way you get nervous right before something exciting happens-the moment when you're balanced on the top of the roller coaster, the hush before the surprise party, the second after the diving board but before the water, when you can close your eyes and imagine, for just a second, that you're flying. The feeling that good things were coming, almost here, any moment now.”
    Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson

    2. I loved The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness, but if you're looking for a smaller read, definitely check out A Fall of Marigolds! (I'm reviewing it on the blog tomorrow!)

    3. February is such a short month and you knocked out so many books, that's amazing! I always have so many books checked out from the library but I don't always get to finished them all before they are due. I trying to speed up my reading. :)

    4. Haha I know how you feel about library books! My fines are outrageous because I always forget to go online and renew them. I've had a lot of free time this month, which is why I've been able to knock out so many books!

    5. Is it sad that I've never done anything for Mardi Gras? It looks like it'd be fun! I'm glad you got to get back in touch with friends! :] I love Gilmore girls! :]

      Good luck with all the wedding planning!
