Chris and I (and Honey!) took a little desert road trip last Thanksgiving, and this year I’m reminiscing hard. We are planning to stay in town for the holidays this year, but it sure is fun to revisit past trips.
Last year around this time I felt the need for a getaway and a desert road trip fit the bill. I find the desert to be restorative, and it was just fun to hit the road, listen to a great audiobook, and slow down just a bit before the rush of the holiday season.
I’ve put together a little photo travelogue if you’d like to take a look…
I put a list together of my favorite things I purchased for our new house. We made some big purchases, like a sofa, a king bed, and a dining set, but the items I listed below are mostly budget buys — with a few splurges — that would work for a new home or even a refresh for a current home. Most importantly, these items are the details that helped our house feel like ours.
Choosing my favorite books feels like Sophie’s Choice *dramatic*. How can I possibly choose? This list is the best I can muster, and I hope it shows you a bit about my tastes and what impacts my heart. I’ve listed my Top 10, although maybe I’ll schedule a Part 2 post in the coming months.
