Halfway Through January

Where has the time gone?  Just last night the ball dropped in Times Square; now here we are, halfway through January with a (tentative) spring on the horizon.

I’m still waiting for Snowpocalypse 2015.

With a new year comes new ideas and plans, so I’m getting back on the bandwagon of daily blogging.  Nothing to fancy, but I came up with the idea from one of my editing projects I’m working on.  Short snippets of daily life, so at the end of this year I can look back and see how my life has changed.  Not to mention, I’ve got family and friends all over – now, when we can’t talk for weeks on end, you’ll see what’s happening.  Useful, no?

Today brought cloudy skies and chilly temps, as well as a new schedule.  9-2 in the Virginia-Highland office, then home to conquer my editing, writing, and social media freelance projects.  Tonight, after work is done, I’ll visit the Majestic Diner with an old friend and discuss, amongst other things, all of the AMAZING concerts slated for the first half of the year.  I mean, come on:

Shut the front door.  I know how I’ll be spending my money.

In other news, I’m anxiously awaiting my new computer speakers from Amazon (I always mistype that as Amazing, which is pretty accurate, in all honesty).  In classic Laura fashion, I purchased some cute little ones that light up.

Blue, if you’re wondering.  LED.

I love ordering from Amazon…it’s like Christmas Eve every time, waiting breathlessly for a package that seems eternally Out for Delivery.  BRB, gotta check the front stoop.  Again.  However long it takes, I will never have anything but good words to say about Amazon.  I lurve them.

The sun is supposed to return tomorrow, so until then!



The days are growing longer and the breeze has the faint feel of spring.  It’s finally (almost) here.  This winter has been a long and cold one; I’ve seen more ice and snow in two months than I’ve seen in my 27 years.  Sue Dewar has said it best:


No. More.  I’m ready for spring, in more ways than one.  I’m ready for long walks with Walden.  I’m ready for outdoor adventures with friends, brunch on patios, windows open all day and night.  I have fresh spring sheets on my bed (cream colored with a leaf green pattern).  I’ve applied to grad school.  I have a list of activities that will be done this spring/summer.  Walden is going to obedience classes…one day soon, he will stop being crazy.  I hope.  I’m eating healthier, I’m moving more, and I’m moving on.  Things are going to change this year.  I can feel it.

Readers, what are you looking forward to this new season?
