The Rule of KISS

The last week of the year is like the big sha-bang. There is a lot to do with a small amount of time. You can choose one of two ways to handle it: crumble under the stress — or adapt.

It’s like running. When I run in a race I always try and finish strong no matter how much I struggle between start and finish. It’s all about digging deep and pushing through the “I can’t go any further” and “am I going to puke?” moments. I wish I was kidding, but I honestly feel like that is how this week is going to be.

And if it all starts to feel too heavy I will breathe, find a new way to carry it all, and remember the rule of KISS: Keep It Simple Sweetheart.

Happy Monday my loves


Didn’t feel a drop

Today I’d like to sit beneath an umbrella and kiss until the rain stops; Then we can go inside & laugh about how we didn’t feel a drop. How special is it to have someone to do such silly things with and not have it feel silly at all.

I love you Andy. I can’t wait for you to come home.

All my love, Honey

I hope your new years kiss was as passionate as this one. This year I can proudly say mine can definitely hang with these two lovebirds. (you’re probably rolling your eyes thinking, ‘Oh well, good for you.’) I’ve never had an amazing new years kiss, so I feel this years was well deserved. Anyway, this smooch is ideal but far from realistic. Ps. Sorry for making you throw up in your mouth a little bit mom (& boyfriends siblings) I love you, XOXO


By the way, I wrote this quick like a bunny after work today because I am having serious withdrawals from ya’all. It’s a good thing that blogging doesn’t have any negative effects (not usually, at least) or I’d be trouble. I have loved hearing from you while I take this little break to get my feet on the ground (& all of our shizzad off of it). Amazing kisses, a new home, & the best readers.. What more can a girl ask for? Thank you…
