Hanging with my Parents

The final day before my parents left, we had plans to go to another large brewery with a farm. Don’t fix what ain’t broke, right? Well I guess it was! We had been looking forward to exploring Vista Brewery, but after several days of lots of driving everyone agreed they were tired and needed aContinue reading “Hanging with my Parents”

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”

Painted Lavender Pots Round 1

After looking at how wonderful the lavender is doing, I decided it was time to give them room to grow. I want my pretty lavender to continue to flourish and hopefully flower! I love my plain white ceramic pots because they have so much potential, but there were no holes in the bottom. Luckily, theContinue reading “Painted Lavender Pots Round 1”

Lavender Update

It’s been a while since I updated y’all on my lavender plants. I started them maybe about a year ago at this point? It was around the time that COVID began making the rounds. Gosh, has it been that long already?? Anyway, there were several attempts made and a bunch that were unsuccessful, but weContinue reading “Lavender Update”

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”
