ebb + flow :: three wishes

Yesterday, during the freak 80+ degree weather, I hunkered down with a book that’s been taking me way too long, a comfy patio chair and finally but it to rest. Onto the next, I say! Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty, it is. I’ll report back once it’s in the ‘complete’ column! Any other reads we should add to our book club potentials?

Weekend Wrap Up 10.11

October 11, 2015

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

What a beautiful weekend! After a doozy of a day on Friday (think long work hours, a sick puppy and a broken toe) the last couple days of sunshine and catch-up have been a godsend. I’m savoring today and all the puppy-on-the-mend cuddles. While I do that, enjoy these links from around the web this week!

What’s Your Vice?

October 8, 2015

ebb + flow :: vice
Today a very exciting thing happened. The brainchild of faucethead, The Vices Project, launched! Thirteen people from across the country shared their vice with the world and it has been so fun to be a part of! I can’t wait to see what other collaborations we’re able to pull off in the future. And, just for the record, I haven’t had a Diet Coke in 8 (!!) days. Maybe I’ll have to find a new vice. Ha!

Wine + Books

October 6, 2015

ebb + flow :: tonight

Tonight is the type of night that calls for wine and a good book. I have plans for the wine, but am struggling to find time for the book! I hosted book club last week and didn’t even finish our assigned read. Eeks!

Weekend Wrap Up 10.4

October 4, 2015

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

Five and a half hours later, I am back in the Twin Cities! With all these weekend jaunts, it’s no surprise that my five year old car is already flirting with a odometer of 100,000! It’s all worth it, though, as I got to spend two days laughing, Octoberfest-ing, falling asleep mid-sentence and cheers-ing with some of my favorite pals. Now, it’s back to reality as the laundry piles up, the pup demands attention and the work week lingers ahead. Enjoy these links from around the web this week as I tend to all three items above, probably at the same time!

Milwaukee Bound

October 2, 2015

ebb + flow :: milwaukee bound

This Friday brings me to the neighbor to the east, Wisconsin! I’m spending some long overdue time with college pals with a beautiful Sconnie backdrop and a baseball game between the Brewers and Cubs. Shaping up to be a pretty stellar weekend from the sounds of it. Catch you Sunday when I venture back to the Cities!
