Can you imagine life without music? I can’t.
My gem of the week…No marriage or life is easy and they both need work and upkeep, but when you’re liking it and who you’re going through it with you realize just how good it is…smooth sailing.
Today was the first day that I thought it was really hot. 102 is the word but my car says 107. How much longer can I keep wearing my so-comfortable-I-want-to-sleep-in-them-but-I’m-afraid-I’ll-wear-them-out jeans?
I just discovered the most amazing abandoned (I think) orchard down the street from us. I’ll show you soon.
In the midst of a tad bit of uncertainty I’m feeling really good.
I once had a professor who was passionate about his subject, and maybe a little crazy. He swore like a sailor, had a slight Southern accent that didn’t quite fit his personality, and could put you on the spot like no one’s business. Anyway, he always said that as soon as you realize you truly don’t need something, you get it. I still wonder about that.
I forgot to post this earlier this week…I’m announcing that summer has officially begun here in Arizona.
Here is my second gem of a thought for this week…Life is crazy and weird and wonderful. As I get older I have no doubt that I would have been happy single or happy without a child, but knowing that I get to experience my life and its crazy weird wonderful offerings with someone I love and LIKE (so important) makes it all good. Crazy good. (I know it’s a spin-off of my first gem, but it’s my blog.)
When I hear Republica’s “Ready to Go” I’m instantly transported to my 17-year-old self roaming the streets of Florence, soaking up the sites, being soaked up. Now I’m 30, a wife and a mom, and I roam the freeways of the Phoenix metro area. I need a break every now and then so I’m going to open the windows and play it on repeat all the way home.
To all my readers…enjoy your weekend, summer or not.
