Insights on Literature, etiquette, and Beauty from a Catholic wife and mom

I’m really excited for this month! February has some of my favorite Feasts and dates in it – Our Lady of Lourdes, Valentine’s Day, the start of Lent, and my birthday! My birthday falls on Ash Wednesday this year and after seeing the incredible fruits from fasting this past January, I’m really excited to start my new year with a little discipline and prayer!

Here are my goals for the month! I would love to hear what you have planned this February and what you want to accomplish! Share with us in the comments below!

February 2021 Goals

  • Celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.
  • Finish reading the books on my February book list.
  • Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Mike and Peter! And make these Love Letter cookies! I’ve made them every Valentine’s Day for Mike since we’ve been dating!
  • Go on a birthday date with Mike! (It’s all I want for my birthday!)
  • Decide what I am going to be fasting from this Lent and decide on some Lenten activities to do with Peter.
  • Record two podcasts with Mike.
  • Continue exercising weekly using BBG on the Sweat app! We start BBG 4.0 this month, the farthest we have gotten in the program!
  • Research Kindergarten curriculums for Peter.
  • Make this Almond Cake with Raspberry Buttercream!
  • Clean out our closets and donate some clothes.
