Today I am sharing a look back at my month. Normally the month of February feels like moving In fact slowly, but this month flew by before I knew it. I hate it when that happens.
Here’s a glimpse of what February 2023 was like for me…
If you haven’t already, you can also read my review for the month of January 2023 here.
This month marked ten years since Joe and I met and started dating. On February 3rd we celebrated with a date night at home, just the two of us, with shallot pasta and wine.
February was a great month of work. I launched my newsletter, House Call. I had a great job opportunity and spent a whole week designing assets and presenting the project. Let’s cross our fingers that something comes out! I also had a breakthrough with the coach I’m working with on what it means to design and write for mein a way that is very personal. The goal is for this approach to help me take better advantage of the flow.
This month I played a lot of chess with August. Joe and I dined at Snack Bar with friends we hadn’t seen since October. I read montage of bliss for book club and we had a lovely discussion about the nature of perception, love and reality.
On the morning of February 12, the whole family made homemade Valentines on our kitchen island. I made chicken wings in my deep fryer, they were delicious. We went to a Super Bowl party.
On Valentine’s Day, I tested positive for COVID. The kids did too, and Joe did the same soon after. I spent most of the next week in bed. I saw Pamela, a love story and rewatched episodes of Bridgerton To pass the time.
On February 21 my niece was born. I can’t wait to meet her soon.
I am writing this at the end of the last full week of February. There is almost a foot of fresh snow on the ground and I am anxious to get out now that the storm has passed. This weekend, I have plans to make a pork shoulder and bean dish. I’m also going to meet some friends and cook with them. Other than that our family will take it easy as we are all still feeling post-COVID fatigued.
Here’s to sunnier, healthier days in March.
