Happy Wednesday, ya’ll. And boy oh boy does it feel good to be back! I didn’t mean to take a hiatus, but when those 12-hour days and working on the weekend started, I needed to offload where I could to maintain my sanity. But now that I’m on the other side of that massive project, and I’ve had a chance…

This Monday morning is brought to you by lots of coffee, thanks to the time change. But, we had a fabulous little weekend over here. I’m thinking back to last night when the weather was perfect, and I had a glass of wine in hand with some Chris Stapleton playing in the background. Pretty nice Sunday evening if you ask…

Happy Friday! We made it ya’ll, and that is a big accomplishment in and of itself. My week has felt approximately 500 days long 🙂 I’ve been pulling some long days, and I don’t think it’s going to slow down until March is officially over. But, like I always say, it’s so important to separate work from every day life.…

Weekend Edit: Babies and Broadway

Hamilton

Happy Monday! I’m coming at you this morning armed with coffee (no surprise there)! This weekend flew by with all kinds of fun things. Everyone talks about the “Sunday Scaries,” but no one ever mentions the “Monday Morning Scaries.” I really try hard to separate myself from work and email over the weekend. So, come Monday morning, I’m not sure…

Happy Wednesday, friends. I hope that you got out and voted yesterday if you didn’t have a chance to vote during early voting. Aaron and I made it out to the polls yesterday evening before they closed, and I was proud to see so many other Harris County residents making their vote count. It’s been a busy week, and I’ve…

Happy Monday! I’m back in Houston and writing from my home office. I got some much-needed rest this weekend – and snuck some fun in too. I headed out of Houston toward the end of last week for work in Dallas. The weather threw a bit of a wrench in travel plans, but me and several other teammates were able…

We’ve been friends since our freshman year in college, we were roommates in our 20s, and she was my maid of honor at my wedding. Together, we’ve done a lot of living! We have a bday dinner tonight at…

Weekend Edit: All the small things

Happy Monday! The weekend went by too fast, and to be honest, looking ahead to the month of March has me a bit anxious. There is a lot going on in March, so my plan is to take it day by day. And, in that vein, I plan to enjoy this very last week in February (did anyone else’s February…
