Happy Sunday! I ended up having a pretty great Saturday, after some plans shifted and my day unexpectedly opened up. The morning was fairly lazy but included checking off a couple more months worth of photo organization. Still chugging along on this photo project. Ethan and I cleaned out his closet. It badly needed it… Continue reading I am not throwing away my shot
(Image by Larisa Koshkina from Pixabay) I finally sat down and brainstormed my holiday season/ winter fun list! Here's what I came up with: 🎄 Drive around town to look at local Christmas lights, listening to Christmas music. Either bring hot chocolate from home or pick some up from a drive thru. 🎄Bake cookies together.… Continue reading 2020 Holiday/ Winter Fun List
Yawn. I feel a little bit out of sorts this morning. Not in a bad mood exactly, but I think mostly just a little bit tired. I feel like it was kind of an intense week for some reason, though it really wasn't by normal standards. Now that I think about it, maybe it's because… Continue reading Tired + B-day Recap
It's officially Thanksgiving week! The boys have the entire week off from school and I have to say, I'm welcoming the little break. As extremely happy as I have been to have them back in school, there is something wonderful about just relaxing all of the schedules and routines. My favorite thing I think is… Continue reading The holidays are here!
"Balance" is kind of a funny concept and one that can be annoyingly hard to find during the years as a working parent (or any parent, really). "Work/life balance" is the full phrase you hear a lot too. (Apparently you're not living while you're working? 🤔I do hope that most people don't despise their jobs… Continue reading A balanced day
After getting to bed too late last night (my fault/choice), I woke up around 3 am after a creepy dream. It had a very scary (and very realistic!) climax which jolted me awake and literally had adrenaline buzzing through me for a few minutes. It was a perfect representation of how the mind/physical body are… Continue reading Beautiful day/ sleepless night
Halloween 2020 is a wrap. This is basically the end of "fall" to me, too, although November is obviously still technically fall. Things just start moving full steam ahead toward more of a Christmas feel I think, and the weather here usually turns colder, darker, windier, etc. Last night was a pretty quintessential "Halloween night"… Continue reading Halloween 2020 and on to November!
I'm happy to report that my crabby mood basically dissolved into thin air after I hit publish on my post yesterday morning. So, either the time spent writing/reflecting on the happiness equation WORKED or the good mood fairy flew by and dusted me with happy dust. Either way, my day rocked. Errands and work: After… Continue reading Solved ✔
If you recall, back in July I wrote a "Milestones" post, referring to both my 100th blog post and my son's 12th birthday. Well, today I'm writing another one! Let's call it Version 2.0 🙂 It's another two-parter. #1: SIX months of blogging + NEW SITE!!! Whew, this one feels huge to me right now.… Continue reading Milestones v. 2.0
I'm apparently getting old and am losing my endurance for high levels of activity. After our busy, fun-filled day on Friday, I just felt kinda lazy yesterday. It was another gorgeous day, and part of me felt like we should be heading out again somewhere to cherish it!! I briefly contemplated going hiking, biking, corn mazing,… Continue reading Weekend Vibes
