Leave the Wrinkles.

July 17, 2016

From my journal. July 17, 2016 A wrinkly, made bed is still a made bed. I’m remembering the greater importance of waking up slowly to the day. Allowing the day’s plans to mix with my own. This morning encouraged me to a second cup of coffee as I watched the flowers begin to stand a little straighter, a bit taller. And surely all of those things are far more important than spending silly time de-wrinkling the lines on bed sheets.…

A Simply Grey Coffee Tour: Four

May 29, 2015

I must confess something to you all. I’m afraid I may have slacked a bit in the café touring this past month. Truth be told, I only went out for coffee twice, both times at Starbucks (and it was the drive-thru), but that’s not to say I didn’t consume my fair share of coffee for the month of May. Sometimes the best cup of coffee is the one made in your own home. I’ve spent many mornings and afternoons standing…

Mornings Like This (A Grateful Heart)

February 16, 2015

Mornings like this.  On mornings like this, Oooj sleeps with one paw on his bone – guarding it from Cleo who he thinks is after it. (He’s one smart dog.) She’s over in the corner of the room, just sitting there, staring at him with a look on her face that is oh-so-smug. (She’s one cliché cat.) I love these two, together. Like peanut butter & jelly, it’s not complete if they’re not together. Like an old couple who’s been…

Currently… Loving // Cleo, who so enjoys her mornings in the sunshine, always close by to where I am.  Listening to // Ben Howard, my newest music love.  Thinking about // my Grandpa. He’s been on my mind a lot the past few days, and sometimes I like to think it’s because he’s thinking about me too. Reading // about how to add Google Analytics to my blog. These are the days of our (blogger) lives.  Making // excuses as to why I…

   Good morning from my buddy Hank and me! Today, I am wishing for more beautiful, crisp fall mornings like this one and Hank is wishing for more hugs. It’s true- this is the only dog I’ve ever known who goes out of his way to get your attention so that you’ll give him a big bear hug. He will keep pawing at you until you give him one and it can’t just be a quick hug- you have to…

Oh, hi. It’s just me. Totally slacking today and posting later in the day than usual. Even though I was up at 5:30am this morning. (Whyyyy does this happen?! Finally my chance to sleep in, babe-free, and I’m up at the crack of dawn.) I’ve gone jogging, took a long walk, smelled the flowers, ate the most healthy breakfast I’ve had in awhile, went to the gym, read the paper (like a REAL paper paper) (and I don’t mean People…

Mornings like this: It’s good to be home.

May 27, 2014

Hello, my loves 🙂 Goodness, it’s good to be back. This morning I might still be catching up on emails (you all are the best, you know that? The notes I’ve gotten from you all this past week have just truly touched my heart and I’m so grateful to be getting to know you all!) This morning I might still be unpacking & doing laundry like a boss… along with organizing the 23097632-9 pictures I took on our vacation (cannot…

I am officially on vacation today, ya’ll! We are driving to Indiana to meet up with my parents and my brother and his girlfriend so that we can all fly out together tomorrow. I’ve been told that to start out this trip, we’ll be partaking in a big family cookout tonight at my parents’ house… and you all know how I feel about Summer cookouts. Even though I’ll be away, I’m really excited for this next week on Ember Grey…

Mornings Like This: Coffee. Lots of coffee.

April 29, 2014

Oh good morning, Cleo. What can I get you for breakfast today? It’s been rainy & kind of gloomy the past few days (note: the rain only started yesterday but it feels like forever already) and the weatherman (Siri) says it will be like this for the rest of the week. Well shoot. I think the only good thing about the rain right now (besides that it feeds the flowers I love so much) is that it totally inspires me…
