My First Blog Post of The New Year

2014 is kicking off to a great start. On New Years Eve Michael and I celebrated by visiting one of the local breweries here in Charlotte, Heist Brewery. I enjoyed a few craft cocktails while Michael sampled the beer selection. It was a wonderful way to ring in the new year and celebrate everything we have accomplished together in the past year!


New Years Day was a perfect lazy day. I started reading a new book called The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer. It is the January selection for the A Beautiful Mess book club. Michael began brewing his second batch of beer. He brewed his first batch last September which was an IPA, this time he is brewing a honey and molasses porter. I am so excited for it to be ready, it smells so yummy!

Sunday we ran a few errands around town and then took Dusty on a rainy day walk. Dusty is so crazy when it comes to water, he loves to splash in every puddle he can find! After our walk I tried a new recipe for homemade lentil soup. It was delicious!

I would say that 2014 is already off to an awesome start! This week we have a few Birthdays to celebrate, I love any reason for a celebration!

  6. I haven't lentils in a while. Nothing helps beat the cold weather like a good lentil soup. Think I will some up this weekend.
