Eating, Reading, Listening, Loving

Hey all! Hope everyone had a nice long weekend – we took a couple of days over the long weekend to go camping (RV, this girl doesn’t do tents) and our campsite had no cell service – it was nice to completely disconnect for awhile! We also kayaked and hiked and just had a generally nice relaxing time (except for…

August/Summer recap

Hello! You know, I keep thinking that things will slow down and I’ll get back to my snail’s-pace-life pretty soon, but that doesn’t seem to be happening. I think this is just my life now.

They finally called yesterday and said “Well we just had a big meeting about your car and here is what we’ve decided – we can pull the valve covers off and if the engine is sludge-y, it won’t be covered under the warranty and you’ll have to pay for us taking…

Very Best Self: Week 2

Really? Y’all are going to make me do this all by myself? Nobody wants to be their very best selves right along with me?? Fine. Anyway, so this was not a great week for being my Very Best Self apparently. I only got up early ONCE last week because hey, guess what! I can’t go to bed at 11 pm…
