(ONE)  happy valentine’s day!  it’s not my favorite holiday, but i’m grateful for all the love i have in my life from my friends and family.  the past two weeks brought a lot of sadness and some disappointment.  i keep going back to this quote about hope.  i think i’ve done a good job lately of looking forward and focusing only on what i can change for myself, and i want to continue to do that.  sometimes it’s hard to remember all that when i’m having a bad day or experience, but it’s true.  i am blessed.

(2)  i finally feel in control of my body again.  and that is an amazing feeling.  i am working my ass of (quite literally with my squat challenge!).  my cravings for salty and sugary things are very minimal now.  i’m focused on my february goals, and i’m working to meet them in a healthy way.

(three)  i got my february birchbox a little early this year. surprise!  overall, it wasn’t as good as my december or january boxes, but i can’t say that i’m disappointed either.  there’s a passion fruit color protecting shampoo and condition set (i always appreciate a large sample size!), perfume (unfortunately it smells like something an old french lady would wear), color changing gold glitter nail polish (i’m planning on putting this on my toes over black nail polish this weekend), and hydro-milk.

(4)  school has been really good lately.  to be honest, i’ve been a little burned out recently, and it has been nice to just laugh and enjoy teaching this week.   although… i am about to go all “office space” on the printers at my school.  they are all driving me and everyone else crazy.


(FIVE)  we have had snow a couple of times in the past two weeks.  it’s pretty rare and it was only a couple of inches, but it was beautiful to see!  so sparkly!  HOWEVER… i am excited for this weekend because we’re supposed to get close to 80 degrees!  another hike in the canyon is definitely needed.

  1. Hey Taylor! Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Friday. I just wanted to take a second to let you know that I find you Work Out Wednesday posts so motivational. Keep up the good work girl!

  2. I was drawn to your blog by its title. I’m a teacher too and I swear that my school is constantly having one issue or another with a printer on the daily!! That nail polish sounds so cool!!
