Finally after a week of rain
The warm sun is shining in, dancing on the floor,
melting the margarine on the counter and warming me through and through
The kitchen is filled with the smell of fresh cornbread and coffee
As I read a love note from my husband for the 100th time my heart smiles
I snitch a tiny bit of cookie dough
Mmmmm if only every morning contained sweet moments like these

Lazy Saturday

  • Sleeping in
  • Hot coffee
  • Multi grain pancakes
  • Visitors popping in
  • Pruning the rose bushes
  • Pulling weeds
  • Enjoying the sunshine
  • A big Barcelona win
  • Ordering wedding photos

The kind of Saturday that makes you wish for a thousand more just like it!

Perhaps yesterday was a prelude for today:
  • woke up late
  • couldn't get a hot shower
  • dropped the bluetooth in a glass of water
  • made a smoothie without the protein powder and wondered why it didn't taste so good
  • spilled my coffee
  • had a session with a client in which everything we tried ended up in a software error
  • had a meeting over lunch that was supposed to include lunch but alas that was forgotten
  • burned the grilled cheese (I mean really?? who burns the grilled cheese??)

So here I sit scared to touch a thing and hoping that tomorrow, the Friday of the week, will include a turn. In the meantime, you can bet that I laughed at myself a lot!

Soooo, I just changed my last name on Facebook. In the process of all the official name changes but honestly facebook is as official as it gets - right?

It is kind of weird. Those new initials aren't familiar yet. I haven't perfected a new signature. And I still have a stack of business cards with my maiden name.

Regardless of how I feel, I know one person who will be grinning like a mad fool. Who could not wait for the initials to join his in likeness. Proud that I am sporting a new surname.

It's all for you. And I have to admit, it's kind of fun to fully embrace this change!

Want a sneak peak

Feast your eyes on these

Aren't they amazing?

Captured by Cassidy is the incredible talent behind these amazing photos.

Cass, I love you girl!

Today's a day

The kind of day that you are glad to have over
Not that anything crazy happened
I wasn't about to give it much of a chance to happen
Hunkered down and worked from home today
All 11 hours of the day
And had a fabulous phone date with Julie
Watching the end of an era, an Oprah era on the PVR
Fireplace burning as the rain is falling
Wish that this Wednesday was already Thursday
To bring my love back to me
Knowing that there is devastation all around our countries
Grieving their loss and feeling of hoplessness
Yet thankful that this day finds me and my loved ones safe
Really have nothing to say
Other than
Today's a day

Marital Bliss

It's been 1 month
since we said 'I do'
and that month has been delightful
although somewhat of a blur
we have enjoyed a weekend in the mountains
visited friends
hung out at the zoo
we have worked and worked
travelled to Houston where I worked some more
the lawn has been cut and flowers planted
we have been to dinner parties and hosted one of our own
there have been late nights and lazy mornings
if this is what a month of being married looks like,
I can't wait for the next month
and hope our lifetime contains many more months
just like this one

Chips and Salsa

I may be on site slaving away, but that doesn't mean that I don't have to eat. And since on site is Texas - a Mexican feast it was today. Not going to lie, this will not be my only Mexican meal this week. But tonight was the ever flowing fresh chips and salsas. Followed up with the most delicious fish tacos I have ever eaten. Dessert? More chips and salsa.

Next round? A sampler plate. The kind that has one of everything on it. Cause I gotta have my enchilada and tex mex tamale fill. Maybe tomorrow night - just maybe!

A Zoo-tastic Day

We finally had an excuse to go to the zoo last Saturday! Benjamin was coming to hang out with us for the morning and so what better place to go then to see all the animals.

Fresh Apple Juice

I should have taken a photo but didn't so pre-appologize now . . .

but Jimmy made fresh apple juice yesterday morning in our little juicer

it was incredibly tasty!

However - I wouldn't necessarily expect that treatment if any of you come to visit.

There was a touch of grumbling about how much work it was and how messy it was and how many apples it takes.

But I think that first taste assured a repeat experience.
