February 2016 (+ Flights of Fantasy February Linky)

I'm not going to sugarcoat it: February was a rough month for me. I always get a case of the winter blues, so I wasn't surprised when I started feeling melancholy and lethargic and tired again. But the intensity with which they arrived and how long the bouts would last really caught me off guard. It probably doesn't help that Macky was away most of the month for work, or that the weather has been more gloomy than lovely. Still, the end of the month has come, and things are looking up, so I'm hoping to leave the blues behind and enjoy March!


I didn't actively seek out things to do this month, because I'm always hesitant to leave the warmth and coziness of my apartment to be out in the freezing, gloomy, wet days of February. But I did start working out again (and have nearly finished a full month of working out six days a week), binged (and obsessed) over TV shows, and hosted the biggest Love-a-Thon yet. Apart from that, I got to do a couple of sleepovers with Danica, hang out with Rachel a few times, film vlogs with Kristin (Have you seen our video about pretty books?), attended a Superbowl Party over at Jaymee & Ephy's place and went to see The Secret Garden concert with Macky to celebrate Valentine's Day and our third civil wedding anniversary! And, most exciting of all, we finally completed our wall of shelves. It's definitely made the apartment even cozier than it already was.
