Industrious Saturday necessitates nap

Mama and I are not morning people. We are often finishing these #OneGoodThing daily posts shortly before midnight. And then we go to bed. Usually with a book. So the fact that we got up early is noteworthy. We then proceeded to accomplish NINE errands before returning home midday to eat lunch and bake cookies.…

A bomb bath

One of my favorite self-care rituals is a nice long soak in a hot bath with lots of Epsom. Tonight I went all out and used a lovely bath bomb with dried flowers. I lit candles, played music, and enjoyed a wee bottle of myx Peach Moscato. It was all kinds of wonderful! Today’s #OneGoodThing…

Swimming and S’mores

The family we adore and share a fence with came over for an afternoon of swimming, grilling, and S’mores. It was a perfect summer day with our sweet neighbors and delicious food! Andy brought his homemade sweet potato salad (recipe is on his blog!) and BBQ lamb. We also grilled white corn, zucchini, and tomatoes…
