is currently happening in my little world.
Cooking a sweet corn, home grown tomato, zucchini, and black bean skillet over
wild rice. This is by far my favorite time of year for cooking thanks to the over abundance
of fresh produce peeking around every corner. Between our own personal harvest and
the generosity of neighbors and some of my patients, we have been enjoying home
grown, organic fruits and veggies at every meal. To be able to stock up on such
treasures from your own backyard, your meal laced with the dirt of the earth you call
your own, is truly a gift to me.
Wearing cut off jean shorts, Shawn's white tshirt, and bare feet.
You know: the usual.
Wanting to get started on redoing the front of our house and adding our very
own interpretation of curb appeal. I've always wanted a big, bright red front door with
black shutters, two big rocking chairs and hanging ferns. It's a project I've been itching
to get started on but know it's wise to wait and save a little money first. One of the
biggest lessons that Shawn and I have learned through buying and renovating our home
is to take it slow, be realistic about our budget, and prioritize carefully. The
renovation project for the front of our home is cosmetic, it is not a necessity. Therefore,
we will tie up the important projects for now, like a new air conditioning unit and
updating the electrical work in the living room, while simultaneously squirreling more
money away in our savings. By the end of summer, that red front door just might
be a reality.
Listening to "Blood" by The Middle East. In the soundtrack of my life, this song
is playing as Shawn and I hold hands and watch the girls playing on the front lawn. It's
for those nostalgic moments that make you want to jump on a tire swing and
count the stars.
Watching "America's Got Talent", "The Bachelorette", "RHOC", "Mad Men",
"Nurse Jackie", "Game of Thrones", "Real Time With Bill Maher", "So You Think You
Can Dance". Have I mentioned my affinity for cheesy reality shoes and
