Taking it Easy

One of the requests my parents had before they came down was to have time to just sit outside and relax. The hubby spent the day smoking a brisket for dinner, meanwhile my dad made banana pancakes for breakfast. I haven’t had pancakes in forever! Yum! Our plan for the rest of the day wasContinue reading “Taking it Easy”

Farmer’s Market

As my husband and I get ready to head out to do some errands, he suggests we stop at the Farmer’s Market quickly to pick up some honey. “What do you mean just get honey?” I say. In the hubby’s mind, the farmer’s market is the same as a supermarket. You stop in, get whatContinue reading “Farmer’s Market”

Planning a trip!

Is there anything more delicious than planning a trip right now? The hubby and I have been talking for a while about going somewhere. Anywhere. We’ve been married a year and have barely left our house. We didn’t even get to go on our honeymoon. We were supposed to go to Portugal for a beautifulContinue reading “Planning a trip!”

A Little Walk with My Little Love

If you come to my house on any given day, you might find a black and white cat sitting in the living room ( and whining) at the back door. This would be my fur baby, Max. Max has been an indoor kitty his whole life. Once we moved to Texas, he had the opportunityContinue reading “A Little Walk with My Little Love”

100 Followers!

I’m not sure exactly when I started this blog, maybe it’s been three months? All I can say is that I am very excited to have reached over 100 followers on WordPress! I know, I know, I’m no influencer. But that’s ok, I am so thankful for all of you who have been reading andContinue reading “100 Followers!”

What a relief!

On Sunday, the sun came out. It was a beautiful 75 degrees! It was a huge relief to be back to the weather we know and love. Of course Texas still has a long way to go before getting back to normal and recovering from the storm, but it is a huge step in theContinue reading “What a relief!”

A Happy Walk

For a while, the hubby and I had been exploring new trails around the area every weekend, but over time we got a little lazy and just went back to our closest park ( which is super lovely). This past weekend we decided to try someplace new again. And we were rewarded! It was anContinue reading “A Happy Walk”

Indoor/Semi-outdoor

Max has been an indoor cat all his life. We started our journey together in New York City, where there was no way I was going to let him outside. The mean streets of NYC can be mean and I’m a neurotic momma. He’s moved with me three times in NYC, a stopover at myContinue reading “Indoor/Semi-outdoor”

Flip flops

I feel very lucky that on a late December day, almost January, I am able to sit outside in flip flops and a tshirt. I believe it is one of the great joys in life. Sit down outside, soak up the sun and fresh air, and drink a coffee. I know a lot of peopleContinue reading “Flip flops”

Ah, Sunshine

I realize it’s getting colder and darker around the country, even here in Texas it’s started having it’s cool and rainy days. So how do you appreciate the sun when it’s so cold? In my house there are two windows in the bedroom that let in daytime sun just above a little two person sofa.Continue reading “Ah, Sunshine”
