Getting back in to the swing…

I love a vacation BUT I’m really happy to be home…even if it means no more king size bed!

And although I know Max is happy to be home and on his regular nap schedule, he does miss the ocean wind in his ears!

We actually got home around noon on Saturday, but I worked on laundry ALL dang day! I wish I had kept track of how many loads, but since we took all our own linens to the beach house to save money, it was certainly over ten! Thankfully Clemson and Florida gave me a great game to watch….which I can say since my team won!

I can’t believe it’s been almost an ENTIRE year since this game!

But back to this weekend.

Between the laundry and the game, Saturday was booked; so I didn’t get to work on any of my other chores until Sunday. But as nerdy as it sounds, I was really excited to grocery shop! AND drive my car! I can’t drive a manual (which is what Parrish’s car is) so I hadn’t driven in over a week.

…and I may or may not have made a pit stop at Nordstrom Rack…and Moonberries.

In the bowl: Pumpkin Pie Spice, Cappuccino, and Vanilla fro-yo. Best part of Moonberries? They label their yogurts gluten free on each placard, so you know which flavors you can have! ALSO the pumpkin pie flavor - YUM

All in all, it was a really good weekend. And yes, the grocery store was fun!

AND….about last week. A few of you emailed and even bestie mentioned it on the phone. What happened last week? And all I can say is – life happened. In all honesty, it wasn’t even because I was on vacation; I just didn’t have anything to say. Since my grandfather’s passing, I just haven’t felt much like myself. I tried ‘fake it till you make it’ and it worked overall but grief is a funny thing. It just keeps coming in waves and I’m trying to hang on as best I can.

But I am so thankful for your continued support and emails. It’s nice to have someone to process things with, and I love the community we create here together. And it’s further proof that I need to get my butt in gear and work on some extra content to post when life happens again. (Because we all know it will)

Hope you’re having a great Monday! It feels so good to be back Smile
