The older I grow, the more I have an appreciation for routines. Whether its making or getting a coffee in the morning, getting up at a similar time each day etc...

With a growing pup at home, and the hot summer months upon us, I've decided to mix up our routine a bit...four days a week (the days I work) getting up first thing and running out to get my coffee in a pair of cut-offs and sunnies, then popping home to give the pup some attention and a quick walk before the heat of the day is at its most intense. Then getting dressed and ready for work while the pup chews a toy or terrorizes her pillow in my room. 


The other three days are a little more flexible, I may find myself sleeping a touch later, or we may go for a longer walk, she may even ride with me to get coffee... or I may go to breakfast, or spend the morning with someone and give the pup some focused attention a little later. 

Either way, I'm a fan of routine, but I'm also a fan of being flexible and enjoying life. 



There's Not Much Like Sunshine in February

The weather this past weekend was beautiful. On Saturday it was nearly 70 degrees! In February. like to think it was an apology for the snow that occurred ON my birthday. 

Its amazing what some sunshine and a warm breeze can do for my heart. The windows were open and my mood was happy. (I seriously am feeling that I may truly need to move to a warmer climate.)

My birthday weekend was about as lovely as possible. I drove out to a winery in Indiana on Saturday with some of my very favorite ladies. On Sunday morning I had a breakfast with my best friend who just happened to be in town from North Carolina, then I celebrated with my family. I was even able to FaceTime with my sister in The Middle East.

Currently I'm counting down the days 'til spring is truly here. The first weekend in March when a good friend is coming to Columbus for the weekend. Until April when I fly out to San Fran for a weekend... its good to have things to look forward to. 


Sorry these are all just reposts from my Instagram feed- I have so many plans for pretty photos and now that the days are growing longer and the sun is shining more often my fingers are itching for the camera... soon!
