I know I’ve been absent. It wasn’t my intention, but I’ll tell you what happened.



Last week, I went to the beach for a few days and woke up to this every morning.

Then, we came home and the rest of the week seemed really, really long. Even after going out of town for a few days, it sets me back and I was scrambling to catch up. And when this past weekend rolled around, I took the opportunity to regroup.


I love a good walk in the woods.

I picked up the CSA and went for a walk in the woods with my hubby.

Then I deep cleaned my bedroom.This is super embarrassing (something I go to great lengths to hide from guests, because God forbid anyone see the way I really live) but the “after” photo is pretty impressive, so I’ll show it to you anyway.


Before. (I know, I know. Yikes.)


Ta-da! I dusted and everything. I feel like I can think now.

Then I went and saw The Heat all by myself because it was a dude-fest video game night in the apartment Saturday night (I’m not knocking video games — I sometimes beat my husband at Mario Cart now, but I was not in the mood). Going to the movie theater all by yourself feels incredibly luxurious, by the way.

On Sunday, we went to church and I made a peach crisp with blueberries.


Summer distilled into a fruit.



It was a tad runny, but delicious.

Then I made a fancy dinner to celebrate the beginning of my husband’s last semester of grad school. We drank wine and talked about life and what we want to do over the next five years. It was the weekend I needed. Now that I’ve had some down time, I’ll return to regularly scheduled programming tomorrow.
