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.

I fully intended to skip the weekend wrap up this Sunday but, what do you know, jet lag had me up around 6 so here we are. I’ve already conquered the grocery list, a Sam’s Club run, a library return, a Target trip, three loads of laundry and some freelance work so I’m feeling back on track after a week away. All that before 1 p.m. isn’t too bad! Check in with me around 4, though, I have a feeling I’ll be dragging. While I delay the inevitable enjoy these links from around the web and look for a full Morocco recap from me soon, it was quite the trip!!
Six months ago, The Red Head and I booked a trip to Morocco and the day of departure has finally arrived! It’s been quiet around here this week in-between the pre-travel errands, laundry and hours at work but it’s about to get even quieter because we’ll be in Casablanca next week with limited internet access (woohoo!). For occasional real-time updates, follow along here and I’ll catch when we’re back on U.S. soil!

With a lighting statement this good there’s no need for curtains, the whole neighborhood needs to admire it!

I spent less than 24 hours in Ames, Iowa for a football game and you’d thought I had run a marathon the way I’m feeling today. I think 7 p.m. sounds like a good idea for a bedtime, no? The Red Head and I are gearing up for a busy week ahead before some international travel (!!) so as I prop my eyelids open and make a grocery list and packing list, enjoy these links from around the web this week!
