So, I have been absent lately…. Like 3 months absent.

Life has a way of getting so hectic any more. Wake up, go to work, come home, cook dinner… Maybe do something afterwards that doesn’t include laundry or dish washing… Perhaps get a decent night’s sleep. Wake and repeat…

Sometimes, when you feel overwhelmed by it all, a surprise moment of silliness can bring it all back in perspective. I have an amazing life… I’m healthy (to my knowledge), I have an awesome partner and a job that allows me to keep the bills paid and live a little, too. But, I do get bogged down and I become absent.

I am hoping to be more present… To take more selfies with the Gumbys out there… And to make more of an effort to listen. ❤

Just an average thirtysomething who loves to read, paint and travel! I try to do as much as I can for as little as I can... You would be surprised what lies not far from our doorsteps! I hope you enjoy sharing in my adventures as much as I will enjoy sharing them with you 🙂
