Currently: January



Today I am so excited, because for the first time, I am co-hosting the monthly currently link-up with Anne of Anne In Residence! I've loved doing these currently link-ups for the past couple years. It is so fun to see what others are up to in their neck of the woods. So here we go, friends! I can't wait to read about what others are enjoying in this first month of 2017. Here's what's going on with me:

Gathering: December is known as a month where you gather friends and family in your home as you celebrate holidays with those you love the most. January can kind of be a "down" month where it's hard to get your wits about you. I hope to continue to gather my friends and family, even though the holidays are behind us.
Making: It's January, which means it is the month of resolutions and new beginnings. I've been making all kinds of plans about how to get healthy and take care of myself. I'd love for you to join me!
Sipping: I am loving my favorite tea by Harney and Sons called Hot Cinnamon Sunset. It is strong and refreshing and has just the right amount of kick and spice to it.
Following: This month, I am following the advice of my husband and taking things one day at time. I'm practicing giving myself grace and hoping that I can do the same to and for others.
Resolving: I am resolving to rest in Jesus this year. It is hard for me to quit the striving and just abide, but I'm hoping that I can learn to do just that.

What's going on with you currently, my friends?

  4. Sometimes I think giving it up to God is the only way. I was just thinking about something yesterday that is very stressful for me and I thought... he will provide for me and my kids, it's going to be ok!

  5. I like your husband's advice about taking things one day at a time. Very wise and something I need to practice as well. I love having new beginnings and all the possibilities of a new year in January. While I don't make resolutions because I never keep them, last year and this year (when I finally decide on my word!) I pick a word for the year to help guide me. Thanks for hosting the linkup!

    1. I love keeping one word at the forefront of my mind for the year because it helps me to focus. What is yours?

  7. I'm not much of a tea drinker, but if it has just the right amount of kick and spice I'm interested... I'll have to check that one out! And it makes me happy to see a picture of flowers - it's so bleak here right now. Thanks for co-hosting :)

  12. Ooh, I've had cinnamon tea. The smell is so delicious! I'm usually more an English breakfast girl, though, which I drink the way most people drink coffee.

    1. I've tried English breakfast, but it just isn't my jam! I know a lot of people LOVE it though! Maybe I'm not doing it quite right. ;)
