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!”

Party in the Driveway

The last time I hung out with someone was close to Halloween! It is crazy to think about how long we’ve been in isolation. I am lucky to have friends who are just as cautious as I am, which puts my anxiety at ease over COVID. Our friends sit across from us on the driveway,Continue reading “Party in the Driveway”

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”

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!”

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”

Plants planted!

I am excited to share with you that our little seedlings have left the nest! Sam ( my husband) built an absolutely humongous wooden planter box. It has been glued, nailed, drilled, lined and stapled. There was some hard work that went in to it but it looks pretty awesome! We carried it out ofContinue reading “Plants planted!”

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”
