to explain the sugar shortage…

This weekend recap is brought to you by my iPhone, if for no other reason than I honestly just didn’t want to lug my Canon around all weekend… There. I said it. It’s a sad truth. Mostly we just did running around and I feel like such a tourist when I cart it around to places like Trader Joe’s and the Farmer’s Market. When the irony that most of these photos are at home hits, we’ll just chalk that up to “I’m anal, I didn’t want the post to appear all inconsistent.” 

We made it to our favorite local {ish} bakery for their AMAZING homemade donuts, (after a super healthy green smoothie breakfast at home), and bought some of their amazing hamburger buns, as well as some graham crackers and marshmallows to do smores with our friends coming to visit us from Boise this week. Chw and I tried to catch up on Breaking Bad, (and failed) we made it to our Farmer’s Market early enough that we were able to spend the rest of the day doing super necessary things like reading this month’s book club book (me) and drawing fashion designs (Gen). At least Chw was super productive, grooming the dogs and grilling us an awesome dinner… 

At our farmer’s market we got the most amazing haul of local produce I’ve ever managed. It was incredible… And, Gen unearthed this ridiculous cookie. If your area of the country discovers a sugar shortage, I’d bet it’s to blame. The pups also got some treats! (Sugarless, of course.) 

I wasn’t completely lazy. I did laundry and finished up a small project in our bedroom so I could finally get pictures up on here. (tomorrow).

How was your weekend? Any big plans for the week? 


– a morning lounging in bed a little later, reading, no interruptions or guilt. 

– the buzz of construction, the hum of jobs and families surviving and lives going on. 

– connecting with a friend two thousand miles away over the little things. 

– hand in hand, downtown evening strolls with my husband. 

– shared ice cream sundae laughs and family conversations. 

– screens to keep the bees out and let them do their jobs where they need to be. 

– an out door dinner with friends, laughter and ease. 

– bursts of blueberry breakfast bites. 

– the great accomplished feeling of productivity. 

– news of a strong and healthy heart. 

– repeat sunshine days, so seemingly un-Michigan. 

– the beauty of roasted beets. 

– a day spent cooking, snapping photos and reading. 

– our family night dinner plates. 

– the fun of making things (meals, memories, projects) with my husband.
