Hey there! How’d your weekend shake out? We got the sad news about the Orlando shooting, and attended an ALS benefit last night, so ours was a little bittersweet. My heart breaks for those who suffer so much… I’m continuously reminded about how lucky we are to have the life we do – that we are in good health surrounded by amazing people. How quickly that can change, and as clichéd as it sounds, there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t count blessings…
On a lighter note, we managed to have a whirlwind weekend filled with friends, family and laughter. My routine is being rocked a little bit now that the heat’s set in. I forget how torturous Phoenix summers are every year, and then the furnace goes all full blast on me and I have to get things done a little differently if I’m going to avoid heat stroke. This morning’s normal shopping/gas trip was postponed until this afternoon due to a dog that needed to release some of his energy during cooler hours and a car that got demolished with the aftermath. Dog park + outdoor dog bath + car wash + desert summer = soggy sweat mess. I had to lay down after all that nonsense!
Speaking of routines, here is a neat list of things real people do to make their mornings suck less.
BTW, I’m just gonna keep on rolling with these posts until you tell me to stop! I spend a ton of time on the internet, and it begs the question: what the heck did I do BEFORE the world wide web?!? Are you online a lot? Is this totally normal? Please say yes…
Sort of on that same note, this read piqued my curiosity. I wonder, could I ever go back to single-tasking?
I think these DIY jeans are pretty cool, and I may just have to try them! What do you think?
We had dinner with friends we haven’t seen in a while, and this came up. Now, I don’t know the comedian or what his background is, and I don’t know what the second segment is about (it may be religious?) because it’s almost an hour long and I didn’t have the energy. What I DO know is that, for me and Joe, this pretty much sums it up! And it had me in tears, I was laughing so hard. Now when Joe says he isn’t thinking about anything, I’ll finally believe him!
This old Victorian home is like, the coolest thing. I wish we could pull off the exterior paint job on our own house! And I’m totally making my own quote mirror.
I hope your week is filled with love, laughter and comfort, friends. I’ll talk to you soon! xoxo
