i miss the calm

I'm still alive! And for the first time in a couple of weeks, I feel like I can breathe because we're taking a 4-day weekend. While it's been nice to make some money and have something semi-important to do, working full time has really overwhelmed me. It might be wimpy to admit that, but it's true! I miss having time to think and write, time to clean the house, and quiet time in general.

Next week I'll begin working 3 days a week, and I think I'll be able to cope much better with that. Maybe I was having housewife withdrawals, but I've been exhausted and cranky. Let's look at some calming images from the good times (a.k.a. a few weeks ago).

A perfect pie meringue! Made and baked by Robert, but I put the swirls on and I'm proud of my handiwork.

The good old days when the kitchen table was occasionally free of clutter [and I made centerpieces using wine glasses & roses? HA].

Stunning view from the top of the hill at Noble Springs Dairy. At least I can always go back there!

I've also missed having time to actually read and comment on blogs! I tried to catch up a little bit today, but I still feel like I've been a bit of a flake as far as being a blog-buddy. Sorry, everyone! Perhaps I'll adjust in the near future.

Tomorrow is our 2-year wedding anniversary, and we're heading down to Memphis for some adventures and also to attend the little brother[in-law]'s graduation! I'm planning to take a million pictures of everything, and hopefully I'll have time to post some things when we get back.


  1. that pie looks delish! happy anniversary and enjoy your time off!

  2. Aww, happy anniversary!! And I agree, that pie looks amazing, you did a great job making the swirls. :-)

  3. Has it really been two years?! Congratulations! I just realized the other day that it's been a YEAR since I saw you guys. I'm guessing you will be busy while you're here, but I hope I can visit Nashville this summer! <3

  4. Happy anniversary! Enjoy your down time - adjusting to work is hard!

  5. Congratulations on your anniversary! And I love your housewifely duties! That's one of my goals - to make centerpieces. My husband does all the cooking but I think I could add a lot to the dining experience if I did a mean centerpiece.

    Can't wait to see the photos!

  6. ah i hope you are able to celebrate and have a great time. you deserve a mini break!


Tell me something!
