Life Lately + What I Got For Christmas

 Welcome back to another Life Lately post. After the fun of the holidays, January is turning out to be very low-key. It’s all about the weather here in Northern Virginia these days which is just downright frigid! #bombcyclone

Anyway, here’s a recap of the past week or so. We spent the week between Christmas and New Year’s at Hershey Park in nearby PA.

Driving up to Hershey’s, the kids noticed the streetlamps were in the shape of Hershey kisses!

We went skiing as well. We’re complete newbies but after a few hours of lessons, we were skiing down the bunny slope like pros! 😉

 During the kids’ winter break, we watched 3 movies: Star Wars, Pitch Perfect, and Jumanji. I have to say Jumanji was the best, it kept us laughing.

One of my favorite things I got for Christmas has to be this hand lettering book that I received from my husband (after I told him I wanted it lol). I’ve always wanted to try calligraphy but I think hand lettering is a bit easier and it doesn’t take any special tools. It gets easier with practice. Here are some first attempts.

This was another requested gift. I love mugs + I love books = perfect mug!

Now that the holidays are over, the kids are back to school and all the holiday decor has been stored away. I hope your 2018 is off to a great start!
