Happy Monday, friends! I’m officially counting down the clock until I’ve got a week off from work. Five more days. I think it’s really important that everyone get away from work every now and then. I consider that time sacred – Aaron and I both do. I always feel recharged, relaxed – and just a better version of myself when…

This week flew by, and I honestly can’t believe that it’s Friday. I’m coming to you this morning with a nice warm cup of coffee. I’ve got two meetings on my agenda this morning: one at 10 – and the other at 11, and I plan on putting my head down to knock out an article I’m writing, along with…

Happy Friday! I always get some of my best work done on Fridays – seriously. When I was working from my office in the Med Center, it was casual – so we could wear jeans every Friday. And, since many people were working schedules that allowed them to have Fridays off, it was pretty quiet in the office. Friday coffee…

I hope you all are having a great week. I’m sharing some things that have been on my mind lately, along with some fun things to do during Houston summers. I’m still over here trying to mentally recover from losing Buttercup late last week. It’s hard to believe that we started 2021 with two members of the fam who just…

I’ve done a couple of these posts about exploring some fun things to do in your own backyard. And today, I thought it would be fun to talk about one of my favorite things to do in Houston: biking.

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday – I’m back today with a recap of our relatively low-key weekend. It was raining all day Friday while I was working, so I knew that would be the perfect evening to just stay in. Aaron was on board, so as soon as I stopped working on Friday, it turned into pizza night at the Gomez house. We…

Happy Friday + Home to me

Happy Friday, friends. If you had a short week, I hope it was good to you. It’s been raining here in Houston for the greater part of the week, which tends to be an excuse for me to kind of slow down a bit. I’ve been especially nostalgic lately, especially as the fog lifts on the pandemic, and we begin…
