And what a beautiful Fall weekend it’s supposed to be here in the Midwest. What are your plans? We are cozying up tonight with popcorn and a movie with the kiddos. We’ve been on an ’80s kick around here, watching Gremlins, The Karate Kid and My Bodyguard. It’s been fun to rewatch these through the eyes of my boys. We’re off to a fall party tomorrow and … Continue reading Hello Weekend!
I often find myself falling into bed each night wondering where the day went. Do you ever feel this way? I’ll reflect on my day, what I saw, what I read, what I said, but it all seems like a blur of business. Since Father Time has no plans of slowing down, I decided the next best thing was to take an intentional pause in order to … Continue reading Five Details

Enjoy the weekend, and … Continue reading Hello Weekend!

I keep a bag in the pantry at all times, usually for their given purpose – when shit gets real and I need a chocolate fix. It’s my necessary-and-not-so-guilty pleasure that’s getting me through at this moment, and … Continue reading Thank You for Holding
We had some emergency home repairs that finally got fixed this week, and the anxiety of waiting around for contractors (will they show up? what will they find?) had me a bit on edge. Now that it’s all completed, I’m looking forward to relaxing with a nature walk around Forest Park today with the dog and boys (they’re off school), if I can pry them away from Terraria, that … Continue reading Hello weekend!
I love cherries. I could polish off a whole bag while I watch my boys play Slither.io. Cherry season is upon us, and it’s a short season at that, so take advantage. I’m digging the moodiness of this dark cherry vanilla smoothie – it goes well with Monday. Enjoy! Makes 1 8-10 oz. Dark Cherry Vanilla Smoothie. Ingredients: 8 ounces almond/coconut milk blend 1-1½ cups frozen cherries* ½ frozen banana 1-2 … Continue reading Dark Cherry Vanilla Smoothie
