Joys of the Month: January 2019

Happy February! I’m starting a series today with a recap of highlights from each month in photos called “Joys of the Month.”

January definitely had its ups and downs. Even though there were lows, it was a good start to the year. I began 2019 in Arizona with family, celebrated my golden birthday (26 on the 26th!), and launched the blog! Here are some of my favorite moments from the month:
