Stripes and a Print

What's up? Things are going well here. I've been keeping up with taking a photo of the kids every day this month. It has helped that we had extra reasons to take pictures: my daughter's birthday party and her actual birthday, plus capturing a cute shot for our holiday cards meant that I didn't have to try very hard to remember on those days. 

I'm still averaging 7 hours of sleep a night, and still trying to increase to 8 hours. One change I just made to improve my sleep quality only took a few minutes: I moved my electronics away from my bed. I put my alarm clock across the room, on a dresser. I can still see what time it is without my glasses on, so the only potential annoyance will be a day I want to press the snooze button without getting out of bed. It is thought that having any lights near you can make it more difficult to get the best sleep, so moving it farther away might help.

I also moved my phone and laptop charging cords across the room so those devices are now a few feet away from me when I sleep. Electronic devices send out electromagnetic waves, which some people believe disturb our sleep. I don't know if that's true, but I know that if I have trouble falling asleep or I get woken up, I'll reach for my smartphone and read email or look around online. I'm sure I would go back to sleep more quickly if I didn't look at my phone at night!  

And now a couple of outfits:

Green tunic, black jeans and zipper ankle boots. 

Black t-shirt, Aztec print sweater, black jeans and maroon clogs. I like that the shoes add a little color to this very neutral outfit. It could probably use a necklace, too.
