down time

" and every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling "this is important! and this is important! you need to worry about this! and this! and this!" and each day, it's up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, "no. this is what's important."
(iain thomas)

i am going to take a couple of days off of the blog this week.

i am headed out on a quick girls trip and am looking forward to some down time and just getting to be on an adventure for a few days with my mom, malena, nerd and my niece.

we will see how my body cooperates with me over the next couple of days, hopefully it plays nice and is not too much of a pain in my you-know-what. i won't hold my breath but you never know.

i am excited that i am feeling well enough to make this trip. when i started treatment, i hoped that i would not get so sick that i would have to cancel out. so i am thankful that i feel good enough (all things considered) to be able to make it and kick off our summer with some fun.

for those of you peeps who watch the hgtv show "fixer upper" we are heading to waco to check out the magnolia silos and explore a little bit of texas. we are pretty excited as we love that show and decided earlier this year when i was recovering from surgery that we would make the trip happen. because we knew it would be fun, and that the only reason we needed.

have a good rest of the week y'all. xoxo


  1. Bon Voyage! *A Magnolia Home store just opened up here, I'll go check it out in honor of your trip!

  2. I love that show. Have an awesome time! xoxo
