I don't know about you but February felt like it both flew by and was the longest month on record, all at the same time. I say this because I spent most of the month in bed, sleeping away the flu and while the illness never seemed to end, it feels like yesterday when I wrote my last reflections post. Nevertheless, here we are.

It's been a little quiet around here because I was down for a solid week with the flu, but I finally started feeling more like myself this weekend. I am so glad to be back. The germs are brutal this year and I wouldn't wish them on an enemy. How have you all been the last week?

I have a confession to make. I'm addicted to my phone. Like many others of this generation, I am unable to set my phone down and focus on more important things for a span of time greater than ten minutes. Last weekend, I had intended to unplug from all technology and enjoy a weekend away. I even announced it on my social media channels to let everyone know they shouldn't expect an immediate response, should they contact me. I responded to notifications fifteen minutes later.

"No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another." - Charles Dickens
Howdy, folks! It's been a crazy week and I'm feeling like February is running away from me. Anyone else? I plan to unplug from everything electronic and going away for the weekend. Hopefully, I'll get some time to relax and unwind. What are your weekend plans?

If you and I had coffee...
We'd meet up one evening at the local dimly-lit coffee house for their weekly open mic night. I'd order a coffee with a shot of bourbon and we'd pull two bar stools up to a table off the side of the stage - close enough to listen but far enough away that we can still hear each other speak. We'd sip our drinks out of mason jar mugs and get caught up in the woman on stage who was reciting a poetic monologue about broken hearts.

I read a whole lot of books last month and I can't wait to tell you about them! Continue reading below to see what I thought were hits and which were misses.

"Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues but the parent of all the others." - Marcus Tullius Cicero
Good morning... or afternoon for those of you who are feeling a little rough after your football parties last night. I'll keep the volume down so as not to agitate your headache. :)

Friday already? Thank goodness! If you are in the same boat that I am and think 2017 has gotten off to a rocky start, the featured articles here will put a smile on your face. Hope you have a great SuperBowl weekend and remember to spend a little time on yourself. Go Falcons!

Can anyone believe we are in February already? So I learned a random fact about the month of February... Apparently, the day after Valentine's Day, gym memberships drop to their lowest rate all year and fast food consumption skyrockets. I guess between burning themselves out the month before and being depressed from the dreariness of winter (and maybe being single on the Hallmark holiday) we all take a nosedive on our goals. Well, stay strong, friends! It's a short month and spring is just around the corner!
