Sunshine for Monday


Sunflowers are such an inexpensive pick-me-up...I smiled all weekend whenever I glanced at these on our kitchen table. I realize it's hard to read the quote, but it says" The secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles."

Back In Touch


I think my neglect of this space is always a good gauge for how hectic life has been. I just looked back and realized I've posted three times since May, so that about sums it up! There are no indications that life is going to slow down in the near future so instead I am trying to actively make time to write here.

Part of the recent neglect is because it was brought to my attention that people are reading this blog with ill intentions...people who "know" me in real life and are basically just hunting for things to gossip about. That knowledge gave me pause because this space has always felt like a place to interact with friends. I thought for awhile about making the blog private but in the end, I decided to just say screw it and pick up where I left off. So, friends and frenemies alike, here we go...

We just returned from some time in South Carolina at my parent's lake house, and I practically had to drag myself to the car to leave. Living in a concrete jungle means that my body breathes a sigh of relief as soon as we see those mountains in the first picture, above. All of these photos make the trip look a lot more rustic than it actually was, but we certainly did our fair share of floating in the lake and spending minimal time indoors. Why is it that no vacation feels long enough after a few hours back at home? I could leave again right this minute...
