Lately, I’ve been in one of two modes: either complaining about the cold and snow or fighting the urge to put up Christmas decorations. It’s been a struggle. Thankfully the sunshine this weekend slowed my roll a bit and I was in neither of the two modes above! Instead, the Red Head and I were outside putting finishing touches on the patio (more to come this Spring, of course). The project has been quite the labor of love and I cannot wait to have some happy hours there next summer. While I got sweep a little more sand into the patio seams, enjoy these links from around the web:
I think the image above sums up ideal weekend plans, no? Let’s see if we can make it happen, people!

While the Red Head and I were in Morocco a couple weeks ago we called Casablanca ‘home’ during our stay. To be honest, it ended up not being the favorite city we visited but it was wonderful to have the cooler temps, an ocean-side hotel and countless restaurants all within blocks every single day. Plus, with Petit Taxis readily available (and cheap!) we felt like the whole city was at our fingertips.
Below are a few snaps from around the city! Highlights include the Hassan II mosque, reading Game of Thrones by candlelight (a nightly occurrence), breathtaking tilework at every turn, fresh fruits and juices at every corner and this amazing dinner spot (not pictured). Next up: Marrakech!
I did it, guys. I put on Christmas music this morning. I’m not necessarily proud of it but when you wake up at 5 a.m. (thanks, daylight savings!) and dive right into freelance work you need something to carry you through! Good news is that I’m almost done with work for the day so the tunes will be shelved for maybe another few weeks. We’ll see…
What have you been up to this weekend? Any holiday tunes in your world just yet? Looking at the week ahead I’m trying my hardest not to schedule anything. It’s tough but after our trip we’re still playing catch-up at our house. Also, we have a 90% done patio that needs to be at 100% before it snows anymore! Wish us luck and enjoy these links from around the web this week!
The last six days back in the States have really kicked my booty. Between a sick husband, catching up at work, lots of errands, even more laundry and another weekend away for the Red Head, I am very ready for a quiet weekend on my own. Whether or not that happens looks like it may be iffy but it’s good to have dreams. Maybe I’ll just transport (mentally) to this tranquil scene in-between the action. Hope you have a great one, friends!

My wallet and I don’t go to Target very often (it’s for my own safety) but every now and then an image like this floats into my life and I really feel like I’m missing out. Project 62 nailed it.

Traffic getting too wild in your town? Invest in a 3D painted crosswalk, it works!

Photographing the most beautiful libraries of the world seems like a solid way to spend a decade and I’m very, very jealous. See all the photos here and get ready to drool.
