It’s the start of a new week! I’d be lying if I said I was super ready for this week. Carl and I had an amazingly relaxing weekend and I didn’t want it to end. We ate ice cream, went to Target and bought nothing (I didn’t even know that was possible) and played old school Mario. We continued our tradition of eating Chikfila chicken minis in bed on Saturday morning and spending way too much time cuddling with Gatsby.

This weekend had me thinking a lot about the habits and traditions we’ve started during our time together and which ones are great and which ones need to go. I think habits are just a lifelong struggle. They either make your life awesome or are a┬ácomplete burden. I’ve been trying to pick up new healthier habits this year and I thought I’d share a list of habits for you to try on for size this week.
