weekend things

After three weeks with lots of traveling (both of us in Charleston/Savannah, Nick in Alaska and me in Scottsdale), we're all going to be home this weekend. I can't wait. Although, Scottsdale was quite lovely, too. 


It's going to be a pretty low key weekend. Brunch with friends, a team meeting for an upcoming CrossFit competition, a judged workout and hopefully a little work on the office. Yeah. Remember when we started that project around Christmas? Yikes. 



With the snow around here finally melting, I'm ready to think about Spring. I'll be studying up on all of Kim's gardening posts, including this one about starting your garden from seeds (something I've yet to do successfully).

I stumbled across this blog and haven't been able to stop reading it. If you need some inspiration to truly live your life in the middle of incredibly challenging circumstances, you might want to check it out. While all her posts are inspiring, my favorite is the one titled "Timing." I encourage you to read the whole thing, but this single sentence speaks volumes.

It’s always the right time to live the life you want, 

and to want the life you live, 

regardless of whether it’s the life you imagined.

I hope your weekend is wonderful and well above zero. I also hope your puppies don't delight in muddy puddles as much as mine do. But if they do, Costco has giant tubs of Oxiclean on sale right now. I bought one.

  3. Glad you all had safe travels! Now get to work on that office. I should probably do the same.

    1. How about I come down and we "work" on your office and then you come up and we "work" on mine? Maybe not super productive but definitely super fun. Bring Kim.

  4. So glad to hear you are all back safe and sound! Arizona looks like it was a fun trip. =) I can't wait to see what you do with the office! And that quote? Love it so very much. I think it so perfectly sums up what I've been striving to do this past year!
