Snowy Days in Nashville ❄️

Happy Tuesday!! Well I thought I would end this last week of January with a few memories and snapshots of our snowy days here in Nashville. They were truly some of our very favorites. We had the best time and truly tried to soak in every minute of those snow days turned snow week. I LOVE when things slow down a bit...Pierce was working from home, Jane was loving the snow, we had groceries and warm meals, the fireplace on, and I was so thankful for those many blessings and our home during those cold, wintery days. Here are just a few snapshots for your Tuesday!!

January and 2024 Goals

Well, I figured it was definitely time to share a few January Goals on here, as I know it is nearing the end of the month...even though January ALWAYS feels like such a long month. I always joke that the Riddicks thrive in January and summer, and every year I am reminded how true that feels. January is always such a good reset and refresh, and coming off of Christmas Break every year, it just feels like it propels us into the start of the year. 

Today I thought I'd share a few of our January Goals along with a few bigger goals for the year. My mom always laughs about my goal-driven personality, and Pierce always jokes that it's the answer he would give if someone asked what is something you love and drives you cray about your spouse at the same time time hahaha (Think convincing him to take a mile long walk with me on completely icy roads simply to make sure I complete my January Goal 😂) Usually, once I've set my mind on a goal, I really do try hard to accomplish it. I think it's the "J" in me in the Meyer's Briggs, but I love a completed task, and these goals are no exceptions. So here a few for your January, and I'd love to hear yours too!!

Frame This Moment - Sledding ☃️

Aww Happy Thursday!! I say it all the time, but I really do love this day of the week. When I was a teacher, I would always view the weekend starting Thursday night, and it always made it so fun and feel so much longer. I tried to make Friday such a fun day at school for the kids (and me!), and it just made Thursday all the better feeling like we were already at the "end of the week." Pierce and I usually have a date night on Thursday night too, and even though I don't have a classroom full of kiddos, I still try to make Friday a fun and different routine for Jane and me too. All of that to say, I hope your Thursday is just as sweet and fun today and you come to love this day of the week as well!! 

Here on the blog world, I love to make Thursdays Frame This Moment day - a day of the week where I pick a snapshot to "frame." So much happens in the course of a week, and oftentimes, it feels like the small, "ordinary" moments can often go unnoticed, but somehow still have the biggest lasting impact. I started this series last January to try to freeze those little moments in time and remember as much as I can about them. To "frame" them so to speak. So today's snapshot comes from our sweetest week in the snow this week, a moment I definitely hope to remember.
