5 things I'm loving right now:
  1. You Need a Budget - The book and the app/website. I can't believe I didn't get on board with this sooner. Budgeting money I already have rather than forecasting what I'll do with money I should get later has been a life-changing perspective change.
  2. Survivor Season 20 ("Heroes v. Villains") - We recently finished watching the most recent season of Survivor and loved it! I found this (spoiler-free!) ranked list of Survivor seasons, so we decided to start with their favorites. This one is SO GOOD. 
  3. Best of 2017 posts - I just love a good "best of" post. It's really fun to see what people enjoyed throughout the year. Here are a few great ones:
    My favorite books of 2017 from Modern Mrs. Darcy
    Top Posts from 2017 + Year in Review from Lara Casey
    2017 Favorites from the Year! and Non-beauty Favorites from 2017 from The Small Things
    > The Best of 2017 from Sarah Bessey
    > The 10 Best Books I Read in 2017 from Everyday Reading
  4. How to Deconstruct Your Faith Without Losing It from Relevant - A great read for where I am right now in my spiritual life; in fact, I've been referring to 2018 as my "reconstruction year"! How encouraging to hear from other Christians who have gone through deconstruction and ended up stronger in their faith.
  5. Hobo Sable Wristlet - I got this wristlet for myself after Christmas. It's been on my wishlist forever and I finally had some Amazon gift cards to help me lower the price! I can't say enough good things about it. It fits my iPhone 7+, money, cards, checkbook, keys, and chapstick. Best part is the handle is big enough to go over my arm so it's hands free! Perfect when you don't want to carry a purse.
Hoping to make this a semi-regular post. What are some things you're loving right now?
