Not So Serious Things

The dream was always running ahead of me. To catch up, to live for a moment in unison with it, that was the miracle. (Anais Nin)

Hello hello. I hope you're having a great start to your week!

Things are turning around here after a couple really tough months. I am rediscovering my very simple, yet completely extraordinary, life. Things have been crazy, but I knew we'd make it to the other side. I think we're nearly there. It's the calm after the storm.

Maybe you've experienced this before?

Not so serious things. Yesterday I flipped through magazines and watched romantic comedies while my Mister studied for his first exam. (Sending very smart, A+ vibes his way right now!) For dinner, I made roasted potatoes and veggies on the grill. A lazy Sunday's simple pleasures.

It's called cohabitation.  After living together for nearly two months, we've settled into a nice rhythm. I load the dishwasher & he does laundry. We are easing into shared financial responsibility. Our DVR has ESPN's PTI for him and Bravo's Flipping Out for me.

Friends trading tea. I'm joining in on Melita's 3rd Annual Tea Trade. It combines some of my favorite things - meeting new blog friends + drinking tea + giving/receiving snail mail! I highly recommend you get in on the fun and sign up!
