168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think.   By Laura Vanderkam -  Takes you through charting out your day to see where exactly you spend your time and lets you see how so much of it is spent on unimportant things or just plain wasted. Very eye opening.
Standing in the Rain by Mirage. I think this will always be my favorite song
Summer evening runs. It's been cooling off a bit in the evening and it's perfect for getting outside and breaking a sweat!

Nieces and nephews here for the week. Their sweet giggles and hugs are enough to make anyone happy!

Fresh basil. So so good. my favorite is fresh basil with noodles, cherry tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. The perfect lunch.

Staying up till the wee hours of the morning with a good book. Something about reading when the house is perfectly quiet - makes the book so much better.

This Tumblr Account. So many beautiful and inspiring images.


  1. It's been cooling off up there in the evenings? Here it was 100 degrees at 9:00 at night! Okay, that is a little better than 109 but still.
    Kiss the kiddos for me please. I hardly got to see them as I had to leave shortly after they arrived.


thanks for your lovely note!♥
