Weekend Wanderings

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a proper post and for this I beg your forgiveness. It seems like I arrive home at the end of each day and words just fail me, so I flop into sweats and onto the couch and turn my brain officially off for the night.  That and ever […]

Weekend musings, a birthday and random thoughts

So this coming Saturday  I am turning another year older.   I’ll be thirty-one ( which pains me a little to say honestly).  Last year the big 3-0 was a little scary, but kind of exciting too because it was the start of a new decade.  Turning thirty-one just plain freaks me out.   I […]

Dinner was awesome as usual, and we were surrounded by family and friends who all joined […]
