I have framed photos of my family and friends all over my office. Just looked over at these little beauties and had to smile. Such a great way to brighten up the work day. That's all.

Have a wonderful day!

Josie Maran on motherhood

My dear mom has been on my mind quite a bit lately. I miss her everyday and love to think of the wonderful memories we shared. Today I stumbled upon this sweet feature with model/eco-cosmetics founder Josie Maran where she talks about motherhood. Just a sweet little pick-me up about moms and how great they can be.

And, she included a recipe for a delicious sounding salad that I can't wait to try.

Happy weekend! xo

Indy weekend

This weekend my honey whisked me away for a birthday (and anniversary) weekend in Indianapolis. We stayed at a charming little B&B (recommended by some friends) in the Mass Ave. arts district just north of downtown. We ate, we drank, we walked and shopped and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Check out the fun weekend we had...

Birthday treats

I seriously work with a great group of people. This morning they brought in an assortment of tasty birthday treats for me. I had strawberry pie for breakfast and I'm having a turtle cookie for dessert. How great is that?

And, unlike my 32-mile running husband, I'll probably take a nap.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Roger loves Chaz

How can I begin to tell you about Chaz? She fills my horizon, she is the great fact of my life, she has my love, she saved me from the fate of living out my life alone, which is where I seemed to be heading.
Roger Ebert and his wife Chaz celebrate 20 years of marriage today. This article is so beautiful and perfectly written. What a love story.
 I sensed from the first that Chaz was the woman I would marry, and I know after 20 years that my feelings were true. She has been with me in sickness and in health, certainly far more sickness than we could have anticipated. I will be with her, strengthened by her example. She continues to make my life possible, and her presence fills me with love and a deep security. That's what a marriage is for. Now I know.
Bob and I were out for our anniversary dinner last night and we talked about how much we've grown in our first two years of marriage. It's amazing how we know each other so much better than we did on our wedding day. Marriage really does make you grow in a way you can't anticipate. It's so wonderful.

Two years married to my love

Two years ago today Bob and I got married on what had to be one of the hottest days of the year. Sweating through his tux, he waited patiently for me to walk down the garden aisle. We met under an arbor of flowers and promised to love and care for each other forever. I'm so happy to have wonderful memories of that gorgeous day, and even happier to be sharing my life with the best man I know.

I love you, Bob. I've cherished these last two years and look forward to many many more on this adventure together. Happy Anniversary!

Read more for some fun memories of our wedding day. We had such a great time.

My husband the runner

This year, Bob decided that he was going to run 32 miles in honor of his 32nd birthday. The man is insane. And, sure enough, he ran all 32 of those miles. I'm so proud of him. He really is amazing.

In celebration of his milestone run, I made him these homemade blueberry muffins - from scratch! No box mix here, no sirree. Complete with yummy crumble on top and everything. They were delicious. Bob thought so, too, after he recovered from turning nearly his entire body purple from a post-run ice bath. We had to eat them outside so he could warm back up.

Happy Birthday, Hubby!

Today, my one and only celebrates his 32nd birthday.

Bob, I love you to the moon and back. I couldn't be more blessed to call you my husband, partner in crime, best friend, snuggle buddy, secret keeper, jokester, handyman, strong man, world traveling buddy, and all around favorite person. My heart is so full.

I love you. Happy Birthday!

The cutest pups

These two sweet faces kept me company this morning while I got ready for work. Aren't they just the cutest? They look like they're posing for some kind of brother sister doggy photo shoot and it makes me laugh.

Happy Monday!

Moonrise Kingdom

If you haven't seen Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom yet, go this weekend. It's fantastic.
And, the movie theatre is one of the best places to spend a few hours on a blazing hot summer day when the pavement's so hot it could fry an egg.

I'm going to see Ted this weekend. It looks hilarious.

White peaches

White peaches are one of my favorite summer treats. Fresh, juicy, sweet and delicious. I love biting into one and letting the juice run down the sides of my face. We've been getting the best peaches at our local farmers market. We seriously go through an entire quart every week. They're just so good!

Ancient Greek playing cards

My parents-in-law just returned from a nearly three week Mediterranean cruise. (So jealous!) This deck of playing cards is a gift they brought back for us. Those jokesters are too funny! :)

Fortunately my nieces don't read the blog...

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

I've only read the first four pages of Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and I'm already laughing out loud. This is going to be great.

Here's hoping your week is off to a great start!
