W62: David's 30th!

Throwback from when we first
started dating in 2006!
This weekend my husband, David, hit a pretty huge milestone!

THIRTY!

The big 3-0!

The end of an era...

So, here's how I celebrated three decades of life for the person I love more than anything else on this planet...

W61: Matthiessen Adventuring

I love hiking!  You know, sometimes you've just got to escape from everyday life a little and spend some quality time in nature!  

Since David works weekends now, I had to find myself a new travel/hiking buddy.  

Luckily for me, my brother Matt fits the description quite nicely!

This week, we ventured to Matthiessen State Park in Utica, IL. 

W60: Cuckoo for Coconut

I've heard a lot lately about the wonders of coconut water...

To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of coconut.  (I think it's a texture thing)

But, I figured a beverage should bring about none of my usual aversions to coconut as a food, and it of course provided me with an interesting new challenge for the week!

So here it is...

My take on coconut water...

W59: Life's Little Milestones

There are so many amazing things happening for the people in my life lately, 
that I spent a lot of time this week reflecting on milestones--
big and small, 
past, present, and future.
