2017 Every day. (07.02.17)

I love taking pictures, the every day, the mundane, the big, the fun, the celebrating, even the hard. Images I want to remember.  So, this year, I’m documenting my everyday. A photo a day for my FB/IG and then writing the stories of each on my blog weekly.



Sunday marked one year with Auggie since his Gotcha Day! You can read all about the first year, click here.  Of course we had to celebrate with a new toy, a “pupsicle” for summer!

He’s getting good at opening presents, and dug right into this one!  Not quite sure how to eat a pupsicle…


I talked about my 30 days of reading last month, click here, and I’m still reading The Secret Keeper.  Took a little time on Monday evening to read after our walk, and since Tuesday was a holiday, I stayed up late.   Most days of me reading I have a little buddy sitting right by, or on the couch with me…. Or awaiting me to play fetch with him. 


Last year on the 4th of July Auggie was a little secret at home with me, and this year he was a patriotic pup with his bandanna. 🙂 The 4th was pretty uneventful; I went for breakfast with a couple of besties, did some shopping for my upcoming trips, went to the pool and hung out at home for the evening.  Perfect day of rest! 


I met a Polished luncheon attendee for coffee and a visit, such a treat to get to know new people, share stories and connect for purpose of sharing Jesus with others. I am excited for our fall semester of Polished to kick off on August 24th! 


Grades were finally posted for my last class in the first half of my MBA!  Hooray!! 1/2 way there!!  I finished up the Leadership Concentration portion of my courses this summer and start the second year in the fall.  Also, I don’t think I ever had a 4.0 in my undergrad….


Friday was a treat, spontaneous lunch with 2 of my 3 college besties and a couple of littles who joined us too! Love being able to see these girls who I keep up with during the week through an ongoing group text. Twenty plus years of friendship is certainly a gift.
 I had some chores to do on Friday, one of which was laundry…and this is pretty much a summary of my summer laundry stack, all the Nike shorts + socks and tanks/sports bras for daily walks with Auggie.  And, a second pair when I get home because it’s gotten so hot that I sweat through the clothes I wear on our walk/jog.Also, Friday Auggie and I took a little road trip to my Mom and Dad’s, the littles are there too so we packed up and headed home through Saturday. 


Saturday I went to the hay field with my Dad to get 50 bales of hay for his horses.  We got it loaded pretty quickly, thankfully with a helper to stack when I threw into the trailer because we were trying to beat a rainstorm!  This was Dad and I before we started…he drove and I loaded.

Here’s the hay field, so pretty all freshly cut!  Though it looks like a sunny day from this angle, you can see clouds brewing in the previous picture.
We got the trailer backed in the barn and inside about 5 minutes before a major storm came through, gave us time to eat supper and then we went back out to unload and the rain stopped. And, here I am after we finished unloading!  #amen Also, this is how the day started on Saturday, and lest you think this was breakfast, it was only an appetizer to a full breakfast of bacon, eggs, biscuits, hash-browns and fruit! So, that hay field workout was well earned and definitely worth the piece of cake (or 2) I had that day!

Hard to believe this post means 2017 is half-way over! Thank you for reading, and would love for you to stay in touch!
