january 2021 recap

hello, friends!

i had every intention of posting this newsletter at the end of the month, and now here we are, five days into february. it’s fine. i’m fine. we’re fine.

my goal/plan for 2021 is to post a recap newsletter at the end of each month. i do this on my blog (here is january 2021) but i really like newsletters, so i’m doing it here, too. i plan to send out a mid-month newsletter that is more about life + such along with the end-of-the-month recaps. we all know how plans can change though. (lookin’ at you, 2020.)

here are some of my favorite things from JANUARY 2021:


  • ‘murder with my husband’ podcast

  • i read 6 audiobooks this month. you can find that list on the blog.

  • the “women’s issues” series on the verity podcast


  • i finished season 13 + 14 of criminal minds.

  • hidden figures (thoroughly enjoyed this movie!)

  • underwater (v. intense, but not bad for starring k-stew.)

favorite things around the internet:

  • this article from val woerner about why she is leaving instagram.

  • if you don’t have tiktok, google “turning random internet drama into songs” and watch his videos.

  • this instagram post by ayanna mathis.

the super bowl is this weekend. GO CHIEFS! it’s also supposed to get bitterly cold in the coming days where i live, so you can find me under a plethora of blankets, wishing for spring. have a wonderful weekend!
