I was doing my normal daily blog reading yesterday and stumbled upon a post by Tina titled 24 Days of Togetherness.

I have mentioned previously my husband and I are in the process of finding our own holiday traditions. I was reading through the post, and realized this is something that would be great for us to do together!

The task is simple:

1. Write down 24 activities you can do as a couple between December 1st and December 24th.

2. Each day you pull out one and do whatever the paper says.


My husband has a crazy lot going on right now, so I asked him to simply write down 6 and then I would write the others.  This way there is a bit of surprise in it.

He agreed!


I got busy last night trying to come up with some ideas.

I got out a small basket we had laying around and cut 24 strips of paper.


Come December 1st we are ready to go! I look forward to chronicling it on the blog as well and hopefully it will be a tradition we can pass on every year!

It helps us all to step back and remember the small things.  The holiday season is always crazy, busy, and sometimes stressful. We don’t want it to pass us by without celebrating the important things in our lives.

Who wants to join in on the fun!?


Yesterday I spent all morning catching up on work.

Around 12:00 I had to run out to ship out our iPhones (we got them both sold for more than we were expecting!) and then I had plans to go to the gym.

As I was driving back I just didn’t feel like being in the gym. Maybe it was laziness but I just didn’t feel like being inside.

I decided it was time to take a break from the gym today and go outside on a walk with Zoe.

The weather is looking bad here for the next few days, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to get some exercise for the both of us.

About 15 minutes into the walk the snow started to pick up and I decided to cut the walk short.

In total we did about 30 minutes which was just what I needed to get out of my morning funk. I was also dealing with a headache for most of the morning which magically disappeared after some time outside!

There is something about the outdoors that just puts me in a better mood.

This was my attempt at showing you the snow coming down. I’ll keep working on my photography skills!

After we got back I promptly heated up some water to have some hot tea.

It as just what I needed to warm back up!

I guess the walk worked too, because Zoe promptly passed out on the floor. If you know my dog at all you will know this NEVER happens.

Do you ever just not feel like being inside?

Do you have snow where you are?
