Intentions for the new year

Life lately

Abby has been feeling crafty and channeled that energy into making Christmas stockings and Roman shades.

Sarah is dealing with frozen cables on her bikes, making traveling by bike a bit slower than usual.

Reading lately: Best of 2016 edition

Abby’s favorite book this year was Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. Sarah chose We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler.

Reflecting on the new year

We rehash the big things that happened in 2016, then move on to how we set intentions for the new year and what word we chose to guide us in 2017. Abby’s word is thrive, and Sarah’s is default.

The article Sarah mentioned on identity-based habits can be found here.

Eating lately

Sarah’s been making steel cut oats in the Instant Pot. This recipe is similar to what she made, only she used water instead of apple cider.

Abby’s been enjoying breakfast sandwiches with sourdough bread, sharp cheddar cheese, and a fried egg.

  1. Hi ladies!!

    I feel a lil creepy but I wondered down a googling rabbit hole after seeing the sweet Marauders quilt Kadymac made you and wound up here. Your podcast is so endearing and inspiring. And of course it’s lovely to hear your voices!



    1. We love that you’re listening, Reebs! It’s lovely to hear from you, and we’d love for you to chime in any time 🙂 -A
