It almost seems silly to talk about how fast time seems to move since it always moves at the same pace but was January a blur, or what? 2013 is so far, so good and I think January is set to be one of my very favorite months. Last night, we celebrated my friend Liz’s 30th year of being amazing with the sweetest, sweetest party – and let me tell you guys, my girl can make a playlist.

Also, mawkish as it is, I still love Valentine’s Day and a week after is The Ethiopian’s birthday (um, what am I getting him?). There’s also some fun travel planned (hey you!) with one of my favorite traveling partners (hey J) and I’m just feeling like I’m starting to get into a good groove & I’m crossing my fingers and hoping it lasts.
