Quote of the week
This is a wish tree we encountered on New Year's Eve while wandering around the Venice Canals. (Yep. Venice, CA has canals too. They're adorable.). It was lovely to read through people's wishes for everything from a Barbie Dreamhouse to world peace.

"Happy New Year!"
What's going on?
New year, new me! Just kidding. Same old me. And that's okay! No big plans for the year, honestly. I'm cutting out sugar, and for the most part dairy and refined grains for January cuz I need a bit of a nutritional jump-start. Also trying to drink more water cuz kidney stones apparently run in the family and that's not a life I'm excited to live.
It's been a very chill holiday season - lots of napping and movies and friends and too much food. Just the way I like it. But I'm ready and excited to jump back into life.
Training for the new Story Pirates started this week and Yours Truly was in charge of it! First time. It's been a blast.
I got an Instant Pot for Christmas! I used it for the first time to make some soup. Here's the deal - Instant Pots are pretty cool, but they're not as instant as they make you believe. Still, they are pretty easy and help make the cooking more efficient, so I'm all for that.
What I'm reading
What I'm watching
It feels like these movies are always controversial, but I really enjoyed it. It wasn't perfect, but I thought it did a pretty good job wrapping up the whole saga. I think Star Wars is too much of a cash cow for them to be done with Star Wars movies, but it appears this is at least the end of this particular storyline, and I thought it was a great end.
What I'm listening to
Season two is out, y'all. Google it, find it, get it, live it. I think EVERYONE needs to listen to this podcast, but especially everyone in Utah. Season 1 breaks down the deal behind MLM businesses and how they're basically a racket. Don't get sucked in. Season two is out and going in a slightly different direction, but I am here for it.
