Currently

obsessing//
...over "Bread and Wine" by Shauna Niequist. I love the way she writes about her love affair with food and how sacred a simple meal around the table is. Every time I pick it up I am overcome with inspiration for hospitality and thankfulness for the people I get to do life with.

scouring//
...my favorite thrift stores for puzzles. My latest find was a collection of Pixar puzzles and I was so happy I could've done the macarena right there in Savers.  #nerding

craving//
...order in every sense of the word. Right after my 2nd leg surgery this winter, I knew it was going to be a feat to get all the Christmas decorations down. Well a solid 5 months later, they're still up in our loft practically begging to be organized.

My Memorial Day project is to absolutely harness my OCD, sort through everything, make a pile for donations, and get it all put away! I am going to live by this "how to" blog post.

planning//
...our upcoming family vacation to Anna Maria Island, Florida. Any recommendations? And while we're on this topic, I think I need this unicorn pool float.

listening//
...to the Up & Vanished podcast. If you loved Serial, you will absolutely love this intriguing journey to help solve the real life disappearance of Tara Grinstead. Don't worry, I'm a sissy when it comes to crime scene topics, but I can't stop listening to this one!

admitting//
...that Adam and I planned an entire garden out and then decided it would be too much work.

baking//
...these banana chocolate chip mini muffins. They are SO good.

loving//
...every single moment I can spend on the patio. My favorite moments are the early mornings when the sunlight is soft and golden and I'm curled up in my favorite sweatshirt with coffee in hand. Even better if it involves a smoothie bowl. Absolute bliss.

reading//
..."The Regulars" by Georgia Clark.

laughing//
...at this meme uncontrollably. This is me after binge watching 6 hours of Orange is the New Black.

crafting//
...a Kauai vacation recap post (finally!). Reliving every single moment as I sift through the photos.

dreaming//
...up a new adventure. You know when you get in the groove of traveling, the second you get home you are already dreaming up your next adventure. Well, I've got the travel bug (and PTO days to boot!), so I'm ready for more exploring this fall (Asheville is high on the bucket list). Where to, my friends?

Gratitude Lately



Lately I'm thankful for secnic walks to the mailbox.




For front door surprises that turn into morning chirping a nest full of feathers.


For weekends spent with this handsome devil and how much our pup loves her daddy.


For cabin weekends full of sunsets and time spent around the table with the ones we love most.


For a thoughtful bestie who creates amazing mail days.


For finding hidden gems tucked into the deepest corner of Home Depot that make my porch happy.



For sister dates, cheersing and wine of the month club.


For a beast that is 10% bark and 90% cuddles.

For quiet patio mornings and tasty smoothie bowls.
And good books that makes me thankful to do life with my tribe.

Here's to gratitude and how it makes life fuller, and the smallest things more than enough. As always, thanks for the inspiration, Today's Letters!


  //  What are you thankful for today? //
