a moment in my day.

if you've hung out with me at all, i have a tendency of always playing with my hair. always. i am also a hand-talker. and those two traits about me and my hands were for free and have nothing to do with this challenge. 

give me a *fist-pump* it's almost the weekend, good people.
and we are also on day #9 of the Blog Every Day in May challenge - woohoo!

a moment in your day (this can be a photo or both a photo and words).

today was honestly one of those days where i was trying to get my to-do list down to miniaturize. actually this whole week has sort of felt that way. from things i needed to get done around the apartment to blog-biz to planning a wedding reception (this august, yipee!), i was feeling a little overwhelmed. 

which makes me especially grateful to have a husband and best friend like Ryan. he is very good at bringing things into perspective instead of letting the whole elephant of situations overwhelm me (and i can def let things overwhelm me far more than they really should). he is also very good at knowing when ilene needs to take a break and just...breathe. so with the weather (finally) lightening up, we made a little afternoon date to the local park and laid out on the grass on our favorite quilt. as the sun shined high in the sky and big white fluffy clouds floated above us, Ryan chipped some golf ball in the grass while i re-read Prisoner of Azkaban. later on, we people, dog and cloud watched. our dates at the park are really some of my faves.

much love.
{happy thursday, friend.}

  2. is "excel" at modeling on your to-do list? b/c i swear you've gotten better and better lately - these look professional. or my theory stands that married people are prettier and i really need to get my husband to talk to me! i'm thinking next saturday (late) afternoon for coffee. thoughts?!
