I've been a bit more absent around these parts lately. I know it and I hate it. I like this place. I like to write, connect with all of you, and share some of the ups and downs that we run into while on this thing called life. But it's summer.
Here in the NoDak/MN region we make it through the wet snow, the freeze-your-tush-off January temps, and the slushy springs because we get perfect summers. We are close to some of the most beautiful lakes and have near-perfect temps in the 70s and 80s from June until September. So please forgive me if I choose to enjoy just a little bit of that, which results in neglecting the online social media world a smidgen. I think that a lot of you feel the same way so no hard feelings, right?
But it's not just the lakes and nice weather consuming my time right now so I thought I'd just share a little bit of all the things going on right now. In other words, my excuses for what's been consuming my time...
+ Being in the building business this is our busy time of year. Work has been downright busy-all-day, don't-have-enough-time, exhausting lately. But I don't hate it. It means we're successful and the days fly by.
+ My brother gets married on August 16th so I have been helping out my future SIL with wedding details in the evenings and on the weekends. And I love it! I miss planning our wedding!
+ Speaking of weddings, my mom and I are hosting a personal shower in a few weeks for the bride-to-be. The forecast for my weekend includes a lot of Pinteresty DIY projects I think!
+ I've also recently taking up these two little things I like to call exercise and cooking. Parker and I have been much better lately about making our physical health a priority. I am loving how I'm feeling but it definitely takes some time!
+ Not to mention the fact that we're basically professionals at road-tripping because we spend 10 hours in the car every weekend so we can be at the lake :)
I plan on getting caught up on a few things this weekend so we should be back to some much more regularly-scheduled programming by next week, pinky swear!
