Weekend Notes

Hello! Hello! Let’s
see…where have I been? what have I been up to?

I’ve blissfully sailed
through summer, Kiki started kindergarten, I’ve added some more miles to my
Delta loyalty program, traveled to some new (to me) cities, truly felt the sand
between my toes more than ever before since I moved to Florida, rekindled my
love for books, improved my sleep habit, drank a lot of rosé, joined the Blue
Apron movement, looked at the world through rose colored glasses (?) and now that we officially said goodbye to summer I
am ready for “fall”. I love fall, as it reminds me of the new school year
and the new beginning, which reminds me I need a new paper monthly calendar…I
am still the old fashion calendar girl despite all my efforts to move digital.
Maybe one day, but for now, I am in search of a girly pretty simple
My weekend plans…at the
moment I am in the Live Music capital or Silicone Hills City or better
known after its slogan “Keep Austin Weird”, all I can say Austin is
weird and cool and so not Texas, if you know what I mean. For lots of
