back in action!

HAPPY 2016, friends!!! Christmas seems like ages ago but time also seems to have flown by. Anyone else?!

Although Monday may be a little rough, I am pretty happy to get back into a routine / detox from all the fun {read: drinking & eating} from the holiday + New Year.

So lucky to have been able to spend time with both my family in Cincy & Richard’s in Cancun this year. Some photos of the past couple weeks. It always goes too fast…

My mom’s Christmas decor is truly magical. She is so talented and I always feel so happy & cozy at home during the holidays. She really knows how to set a table!

^lots of mimosas were consumed. An amazingly fun day that was followed by a 9am spinning class at Define in Oakley. If you live in Cincy I highly recommend checking it out! Danny’s class is SO good.

We had 1 night at home to regroup and off to Mexico we went with Richard’s fam. An amazing few days with his siblings, mom and our adorable nephew.

Highlights: exploring the Cenotes {these are underwater caves that are so stunning} // day trip in Tulum – REALLY want to go back here, such an amazing stretch of boutique hotels, restaurants and shops // day trip to Isla Mujeres – colorful & beautiful beach island.

And back home to start a new year. I know it will come with lots of happiness and joy. However, stress & anxiety also find their way into a year with changes & the unknown. My favorite fortune cookie this year reads: “Our perception and attitude toward any situation will determine the outcome.”

Wishing you more happiness and joy than anxiety and stress this year. Cheers! xx
