we are ready.

May 19, 2022

Last night was the annual ‘oh-my-gosh-summer-is-here-it’s-time-to-book-all-the-things’ panic. It happens every year around this time so I was ready. That panic resulted in the acquiring of 9 baseball tickets, 4 tickets to the horse races, 2 dance camps, 1 ninja camp, 8 golf lessons, 4 pool passes, a gymnastics session, and a very large glass of wine for me. Cheers to summer, we made it!

Doing it again.

This first few weeks of January 2022 are all feeling very March 2020, no? It’s been wave after wave of less-than-ideal news and, topped with a bout of Covid at our house, I’m ready for January to move right along. Sending good thoughts to you and yours. Stay safe out there, pals.

Nose in a book.

January 5, 2022

Perhaps it’s the energy of the New Year or the fact that I sleep much better when I’m not doomsday scrolling on my phone before bed but I’ve been tearing through books lately. I finished Verity (holy smokes!) in just over a day, The Heart’s Invisible Furies (wow!), and started The Giver of Stars (finally!) last night. Hoping 2022 brings more and more books into my life. I need them.

Change something.

Our return to office is approaching… that means the return of my (10+ year old, purple, bedazzled) flat iron is also approaching. I’ve been wearing my hair tied back in a low bun for longer than I can remember. Blame kids. Blame time management. Blame the half-curl, half-frizz combo I’ve inherited but this mop isn’t doing me any favors these days. Perhaps I need to give a beautiful, simple hair pin a try. Adding to my Christmas list.

Doing it.

Somehow I blinked and it had been five weeks since I last visited this little slice of the interweb. Thankfully, that time away has been a sign of all good things off-screen. Things that included a very fun and complete (!!) summer bucket list, a trip to Chicago to cheer on my sister during her second marathon (incredible!), photos of our growing family, a quick trip to Iowa, and lots of Fall prep. This coming weekend is the first weekend in quite some time we’ll all be home and staring at a wide open calendar. Hoping to work on Halloween costumes, make some pumpkin bread, and… sit. What a concept: sitting. Hope you have some sitting on the agenda this weekend too!
