Journey Jots #8

Hello, guys! Happy Sunday to you!

How are you doing? Hanging in there? Me too. We can do this, you guys!

After all of the balmy weather we’ve had here, it finally feels like December. Tilly likes to cuddle in all of the blankets and use pillows like a human 🙂

Life Lately

We hung out with our niece Molly last week for a few hours. She’s just the best.

We read books, played with crinkle paper, and watched Christmas movies. And look! Her plaid jammies match the pillows! Those baby blue eyes just get me every time.

Tilly loves Molly. Like…she just wants to kiss her face constantly. Tilly even managed to wedge herself between us on the couch to sit by her. It’s the cutest thing ever!

Lastly, we spent time quality time in nature at our favorite river fishing spot. Was it cold? Yes. Would I want to be anywhere else on a Saturday? Nope. I’m learning to push myself out of my comfort zone more often and, I gotta say, it’s very empowering.
