January 2020 Lookback

2020 started off differently than I anticipated. It's been beautiful and gross all at once. There are some positive things yet to come, but I have been reminded that each day is a gift and that tomorrow is never promised. But for now I'm going to sip on my English breakfast tea with heavy cream (a luxury to say the least), and just be. I can't control the future and maybe the best I can do is just enjoy the moment for what it is.

Listening to:

Marc Cohn - "Walking in Memphis"


This past Christmas and the days following. It was a whirlwind. A death in the family has got me contemplating life and my values.


mostly travel. I just got an update from my employer regarding the next 6 months and my work schedule, so I've been putting mine and Justin's holidays into a calendar and working out our schedule for the upcoming year.

Scotland, a cross-country road trip, and some time in Florida on the panhandle, maybe Hawai'i for Christmas?

This month for Scotland planning, we booked train tickets from Paris to London, and from London to Glasgow. We also laid out a general road trip plan.

For the cross-country road trip, I booked a rental car. At current prices, the road trip may not happen? We're going to watch the prices though and see if they drop to something we are comfortable with.

For the trip to Florida, I just booked a rental car.

While we had been looking at a trip to Australia for the new year, I'm not entirely sure that will fit in with my work schedule. We might try to meet up with our Australian friend in Hawai'i or elsewhere over the holidays. This has yet to be decided. Alternatively, it may be another year at home.

I also bought a birthday gift.

Anxious about:

picking hotels for Scotland travel. I know I need to start looking, but I just haven't wanted to.

Interested to Know:

if meeting a friend will work out. If the friend will stay in my life.
