Life Lately

OMG! Where does time go? I mean really…one minute you’re making summer plans & the next it’s ALMOST October. Geeeeeez. I can not complain though because hands down, October is my favorite month of the year!

All of that said…I’ve been missing this here blog thing and am forcing some attention this direction. It’s not that I don’t want to post, it’s that I look at the clock and it’s bed time waaay to soon after leaving work.

In between, there is owning a home and all the little projects we plan and create that receives our undivided attention ALMOST all of the time! For those of you who’ve asked and missed this little blog of ours, we say “Thank You” for reading and noticing our absence. Thank you for your patience and also for returning!

This is a little bit of our life lately…

6. Dave made Mr. B’s BBQ shrimp…..we’re missing New Orleans, can you tell?
