It's one of those days where I feel like saying something. I feel like finding something personal and moving to shout out with passion and enthusiasm. I feel like baring my soul and sharing the deepest innermost parts of who I am, and being at peace with the complete openness. 

However, I can't think of what to say. 

I ought to blog about our lives and I ought to tell you how awesome life is (it really is). I ought to take gobs of pictures and do crazy projects with Squirt and share the recipes I've been playing with, but instead I sit here quietly, my mind a blank state.

The Hubs and I had one of our bi-monthly date nights last night. That is something we have made a priority and I'm soooo glad we have. Usually we get one hour to ourselves every other week when Squirt goes to a girls activity group through church. We make the most of that hour. Last night was Mezza Luna Pizzeria and it was quite tasty (though maybe not quite as much as the most awesome pizzeria in Victoria). Mostly though my selfish side loves that it's time when the PhD is in the background and we get to be just us. It doesn't last long, but it's so very worth it.

In that spirit, happy Friday everyone! May your weekend greet you joyously with the rest and respite from stress that you may be in need of.


  1. Embrace the blankness and let it consume you for a time. (I think they call it meditation.)

  2. I love all the posts! Sorry I haven't checked in often enough... I just have to say that you both simply radiate happiness, which is truly contagious. I always come away feeling so uplifted and excited about life and love. Also, I feel like a dork for NEVER having been camping in 11 yrs.(cabins don't count right?) hahaha!! :) I'm so happy for you two and your beautiful life together... and I wish you were closer to AZ!


OOOH oooh!! We love comments!!!
