[Enjoying] Life Lately

Man, oh, man. I’ve gotten way behind the blogging eight ball. Personally, I find that I have a hard time blogging when so many fun things are happening at once.

Don’t get me wrong – my life hasn’t been “Facebook” great; meaning, I don’t live a life full of vacations, parties, and consecutive perfect hair days, but it’s been really enjoyable lately.

With a promotion at work, the summer starting, and getting to spend lots of time with people I enjoy, I haven’t remembered to blog. I’ve forgotten lots of “important” stuff –  like, this past weekend, I didn’t check my email from Friday afternoon until Monday morning!

But, I have a few minutes to spare while my chocolate chip cookies cool and I wait for Cory to get home from work, to share a few of the enjoyable things that have been goin’ on :)

I’ve been obsessed with enjoyed dining al fresco at Cafe Caturra. Richmond friends, the shrimp tacos at Caturra are to die for! (So are the perfect portions) 

I’ve been enjoying my new partnership with Simone France! Review of their travel kit is coming up soon!

I’ve been enjoying making summer-y desserts.

I’ve so been enjoying our community pool (with lots of SPF!)

I’ve been enjoying our neighbors – and the fact that there is a little someone who wants to “marry Cory.” (My heart is melting)

I finally enjoyed my first iced coffee of the season! I’m ashamed it’s taken me this long.

I’ve been enjoying our neighbor friends (again.) We recently went out to celebrate Remy’s birthday!

I’ve come to find that happiness lies in the subtleties of life, not excitement of the go-go-go. Like sipping wine on your neighbor’s deck, or taking a walk with no destination in mind, or sleeping in, or spending the afternoon at the pool.

I’m learning to slow down, and I like it.

  2. I love this post!!! It sounds like you really are enjoying life and the summer — it’s so awesome that you have figured out how to just slow down… and “smell the roses” without being stressed about it :)

  4. i’m all about slowing down and sipping some wine :) ..those summery desserts aren’t looking too shabby either ;)

  5. Glad you are enjoying life so much Colleen. Not that blogging isn’t swell but you know how it is. :-) Also those Shrimp tacos look fantastic.

  6. Your first iced coffee of the season?! I’d be so much richer right now if I hadn’t started the iced coffee binge back in March, haha.

  7. I NEED an iced coffee today. It’s seriously what got me out of bed this morning. I like this attitude. I really agree. Little things keep me going (but I do need you to seriously kick my ass into gear for working out…please?)

  8. I love that you’re friends with your neighbors! That’s always nice!

  9. I love the little neighbor girl that has a crush on Cory! We have two little girls that live across the street from us that have a crush on Cody too. They twirl their little dresses, wave, and say, “Hiiii Cody!”. Too stinkin’ cute.

    Cafe Caturra is one of my favorite places to go for HH in the winter. Try the black bean and white cheddar tacos some time!
