May in review

I mentioned in yesterday’s Jovial June post that May was a pretty great month for us. I/we started out with twelve goals and we were pretty successful when it comes to many of them. Our main focus was working on some habits that needed a little attention and a bit of …

April in review

Last August, I started to publish a list of things we’ll do this month in an attempt to mix a little fun and adventure into our boring old to do list. We spend so much time at work and sometimes it feels like we spend the rest of our time running …

Marvelous March in review

Well, March was pretty tied up with two things: wedding cancellation and moving. I know, I know. I feel like a broken record as much as I’m sure I sound like one. You’re thinking, “We get it, Carly, you moved.” But, in just 2.5 short years, I had totally forgotten …

February in review

Catching up with February. How can two to three days difference leave a month feeling that much shorter?!? We had a few big plans that went by the wayside, but we also had a couple of little surprises creep in there, too. It was a good month, but it felt …

January in review

Welp. One month (plus a day) into 2017. Yes, already. Sheesh. January started in my most favourite way. With Amy (and our significant others, too.) The last thing I did in 2016 was dance with Tyson who, as it turns out, LOVES (!!!) Nelly. The first thing I did in 2017 was kiss …

November in review

November was a whirlwind. (And based on how late this post is, it’s safe to say that December has carried on that way, too!) Though we were only away for seven days of it, that trip felt like it accounted for most of the month. Knowing we’d be away, I …

October in review

Well, well, well, another month gone and another  <SPOILER ALERT> bad report card for me. Beginning in August, I started publishing a monthly list of things that we’d like to do for enjoyment and to make our lives happier. Here is a link to my list for October. This is one of …

September in review

September was awesome and amazing and so very many things. In terms of my things we’ll do this month list, it was also a massive failure. But, hey, it’s all good since we made great strides (literally and figuratively!) in other areas. My favourite photo of the month: The Paddlewheeler …

August in review

This month, I started with my first “things we’ll do this month” list of fun(ish – but mostly fun) goals for the month. Things I want to do, see and try throughout the month, some new things, some old things revisited. I was talking with a friend just days after …

July in review

High: we went on vacation. Low: we were put on balcony lockdown for 12 days which made for 31 degree nights inside our apartment. (That’s 88 degrees for those of you playing along in America.) Good: we explored a local park that we’d wanted to visit for years. We harvested …
