The Weekender

Oct 16

We’re halfway through my favorite month, and I’m not sure how it happened.  There as been so much going on in the past two weeks with editing, events at the Mill, medical appointments, trying to be a successful human . . . it’s been . . . hard.  That’s all I really know how to say about that to be real with you.  It’s been a hard October so far.  But I’m not going to let that get me down.  There are two weeks left, and I intend to make them count!

  • My first experiment with HelloFresh was a good one.  I actually have another box coming on Wednesday!  I’ll tell you why: it takes all the guesswork out of planning dinners.  I don’t have to search Pinterest for something new to try before inevitably getting annoyed and making the same old chicken standby.  I don’t have to wonder what on earth to make the next night and the night after that.  Heck, I don’t even have to grocery shop!
  • Also, HelloFresh has made me try new things, like purple potatoes and zucchini flatbread pizza.  That’s a big win in my book.
  • BONUS.  These meals in a box have also made me feel like a more confident cook because I’m pretty I could recreate some of my favorites on my own now.
  • Before my last two weddings and two engagement sessions of 2017, I’ve been getting some reading done!  I am ONE BOOK AWAY from my 30 book reading goal!  I guess I should have been more ambitious!!
  • It just took me about a full minute to come up with the word “ambitious.” COULD NOT remember which word means “having a bigger goal.”  Need. Vacation?
  • Note to self: Stop going to Petco on Sundays.  The Orange Animal Shelter has a little adoption event there on Sundays, and of course, I fell in love with a shepherd mix yesterday.  Robert keeps trying to remind me that we are too busy but . . . BUT . . .

OKAY.  Since I’m on a little vay-cay from shooting until Jen & Andy’s wedding on SATURDAY (literally cannot wait for this one guys.  It’s inspired by Lord of the Rings.  GAH!), here’s a little iphone shot from our wedding at the Mill this past weekend!  I love, love, love seeing Fall colors on our farm tables.  🙂
