This list basically includes all of my favorite things from this year (excluding books because they needed their own post)!
Favorite TV Shows: Flea Bag, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Crown
Favorite Movie: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Favorite Albums: Tides of a Teardrop by Mandolin Orange, Wildcard by Miranda Lambert, Closer Than Together by The Avett Brothers
Favorite Jeans: 10" Skinny Jeans: Button Front Edition (I LIVED in these jeans most of this year so they were worth the $. Madewell also has sales often so be on the lookout for those + bring in a pair of old jeans to be recycled and get $20 off).
Favorite Leggings: LuluLemon All the Right Places 28" (also expensive, but worth it in my opinion. I do a capsule wardrobe and have 2-3 pairs of nice jeans and a couple pair of leggings. Also, Lulu's return policy is awesome. If you don't like the leggings or something goes wrong with them you can return them even after wearing them).
Favorite Makeup: Beautycounter Dew Skin SPF Moisturizer (A lighter coverage but seriously my favorite and it feels so good. I wear shade #2 ), Beautycounter Color Pinch Cream Blusher in Umber, and Fitglow Beauty Conceal+ (I wear C2).
Favorite Jewelry: These earrings by Viki Glaze (she's taking a little holiday break, but she'll have more in stock soon if you are interested).
Favorite Podcast: The Next Right Thing by Emily P. Freeman. I listen to audiobooks way more than podcasts, but when I do listen to a podcast it's almost always this one. It's kind of like a brief respite from the day.
Favorite Planner: Y'all, I'm a planner freak and have to have just the right one. That said, I've tried so many and liked many of them (Simplified Planner and Ink + Volt being at the top of the list), but I'm pretty sure I'm a Bullet Journal girl. I can make it what I want and it has worked really well for me this past year. See a quick start guide for bullet journalling here. I like to use this notebook.
Your turn! Have you tried any of these favorite things? What are some of your favorites from 2019?

Over the past months, I've learned that I have a lot to learn concerning the history of our country and the issues of systemic racism. I've recognized that I, too, have biases that I was unaware of. Waking up to this reality has felt a little like grieving or at least going through the grief process. It hit me hard in the beginning and I was sad and angry. Then I didn't know what to do with the pain of it and was overwhelmed by it all. And now I'm accepting the fact that I have a lot of work to do and that this is a marathon, not a sprint...
"For me, becoming isn't about arriving somewhere and achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn't end. I became a mother, but I still have a lot to learn from and give to my children. I became a wife, but I continue to adapt to and be humbled by what it means to truly love and make a life with another person. I have become, by certain measures, a person of power, and yet there are moments still when I feel insecure and unheard. It's all a process, steps...
