Seriously. Where did 2017 go? I know that I had a good chunk of the summer taken out with travel to Croatia for Micah and Wendy’s wedding but honestly — I am left wondering where the heck the rest of the year went.
Chris looked at his calendar the other night and figured he had spent about half of the nights so far this year at home. It certainly seems like it has been less. Travel for work is draining and we are both looking forward to our Christmas get away where he will really be able to relax and not be traveling like a maniac. And did I mention beach? Yes! Another beach trip.
Today’s post is a peek into my life at the moment so stick with me, please.
What I am reading.
Anything and everything. Favorite blog to read right now is Sean of the South.
On my nightstand When We Were Sisters by Emilie Richards
Last book I read that I loved : The Dark Lake by Sarah Bailey
Continuously reading: My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers
What I am listening to.
Podcasts : Sean of the South (amazing to hear it as well as read it), The Moth, This American Life
Music: Anything from the 70’s
What I am watching .
Catching up on Scandal, This is Us and binge watching Vera on Acorn TV. And if I am honest my guilty pleasure of watching Dance Moms. Only because Micah had a chance encounter at the airport with Dance Mom Melissa and now Miss Erin and I are hooked on the drama. Don’t judge. Please.
What I am doing.
Blowing leaves and pine needles daily. The driveway looks nice for a minute.
What I am looking forward to.
Short trip to Houston for company board meeting which translates to two days of exploring and shopping while Chris is in meetings, visit by my bestie Ann and doing a Vintage Christmas Crawl, quick trip to Ohio with Aaron and Erin and Chris to see family, and of course Thanksgiving.
What I am writing.
Blog posts and letters. I have not even shared much from our August trip to Croatia and Paris. I think life got in the way or something. Hopefully I will get some of those posts written because I have so many wonderful images to share with my readers.
What I am looking at.
What I am excited about.
My mom’s 88th birthday which is November 10th. If anyone wants to send her a card let me know in the comments and I will get her address to you. I know she would love a card shower again.
