Happy Friday, everyone! So great to finally be back with you!

I’m thrilled…

no, I’m elated…

okay, I’m ecstatic to report to you that this week, this monumental week, something really big happened.

(No, I didn’t finish those books I’ve been working on, or win the lottery, though it sort of feels like it.)

This week we said goodbye to our temporary housing and our inflatable mattress (definitely a story for another post ;)) and FINALLY moved into our new home.

After months of being displaced and truthfully, feeling pretty lost, we actually got to sleep in a real bed this week – our bed – and yes, climbing into a bed that didn’t feel like one of those bouncy-houses that kids like to play in, sort of felt like winning the lottery.

As for all that’s transpired in the last several months – wow! – all I can say is, it’s been a head-spinning whirlwind.

Traveled back to California again to celebrate my big brother’s birthday and had the chance to spend the day in one of my favorite places – Napa Valley.  Such a fast trip – feels like a dream!

Wishing you a wonderful Sunday wherever in the world you happen to be. Make it a good one! xox~M

Happy weekend, all! I never planned on being gone so long, but somehow life has gotten in the way of my creative pursuits. I’ll be back soon to fill you in on all that’s been going on with me.

In the meantime, I wish you a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you happen to be. Make it a good one! xox~M

Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach

Happy Friday, everyone! After the last couple of weeks I’ve had all I can say is thank God for Laguna!

The stress of orchestrating a mammoth move has been, to say the least, overwhelming.

Memories of my trip to Southern California last month are helping to keep me calm (sort of :) ).

Only half of my move is complete and we are not yet settled. I’m hoping beyond hope that all the stars align and that we’ll finally be settled in our new home sometime next week.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you happen to be. Hope you find countless reasons to smile.

Make it a good one! xox~M

Had an amazing time in Southern California. Stayed in beautiful Laguna Beach where it was blue skies and sunshine every day. Scenes like the one above were abundant and nearly convinced me that I should turn my short-term trip into a permanent stay. But alas, commonsense prevailed and I did in fact, make it to my plane on time :(

I’m back in rainy, cold Chicago. (What was I thinking?!)

Since I’ve been home I’ve been up to my eyeballs in boxes, packing up my home for a big move and another new adventure.

I’ve missed being here on a regular basis but I hope to be back here soon. In the meantime, I wish you a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you happen to be. Make it a good one! xox~ M
