The Sunday Post: Boston

As promised, here are some of my favorite shots from last weekend’s getaway trip to Boston. It was a pretty relaxing visit with no big agenda other than a few places I’d pinned in my Google Maps as possible destinations. Turns out most of them were pretty close to our hotel. The first day was…

Music Fridays: Somebody that I used to know

I’m almost afraid to share my pick for this week’s music post. I was going to go a different route and share something new, but then this song sort of worked its way out of my subconscious. I say that I’m almost afraid to share it because I don’t want you to think that I’m…

Keys

Today I used part of my lunch break to walk around the neighborhood. I try to do this when I feel the need to stretch my legs and burn a few calories and the weather is nice. Sitting all day at my work computer is hard on my body. Maybe one day I will splurge…

The Sunday Post: The Dance

How do you go all-in in a new relationship without feeling like you’re rushing into anything, moving too fast, or maybe more accurately, without coming on too strong? In Friday’s music post I mentioned that I’m trying to find the right balance. Last year when I decided I was ready to start dating my friends…

Music Fridays: The Joker and the Queen

There are so many songs I could have picked from this new album: Visiting Hours, Overpass Graffiti, Shivers. Each hit me differently but just as strong. I chose this one because I love its soothing and gentle melody and I think it does an excellent job of describing where I am in my relationship. I’m…

The Sunday Post: Checking them Off

I’ve been busy the last several months getting caught up in preventive maintenance of the medical variety. Over the last few years I kept up with a few of these to-dos, but I also put some off. I started off with an eye exam this spring and got new glasses for my new prescription. When…

Music Fridays: Pink Martini

It’s Friday! I was torn as to what song to share with you today. I listened to Ed Sheeran’s new album this morning and I was tempted to share that, maybe by way of the new Tiny Desk episode featuring that album, because so many of the songs touched me in one way or another,…

The Sunday Post: Color my World

It was a nearly perfect fall day. We went out for a drive and picnic lunch on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The weather was gorgeous, the company was fun, and it wasn’t as crowded on the overlooks and parkway as we thought it would be. The only thing that stopped it from being perfect was…

Music Fridays: Simple Things

It’s been another one of those weeks for me. I’ve been thinking a little too much, maybe even feeling a little too much, if that’s possible. Every time I look at the calendar I remember something sad, like the fact that my dad passed away last October. This time last year he was still alive,…
