Hi, you guys! Happy Friday! The northeast is bracing itself for “dangerous heat” this weekend and here in New Jersey, it’s supposed to reach 110 degrees with the heat index so I’m planning for a whole lotta’ air conditioning. I’m kind of bummed because our town is hosting festival days this weekend with a carnival, kayak racing, face painting, games, etc… but I can’t imagine being outside all day in this humidity… or any length of time, for that matter, lol. What are you all up to?
Every Friday, I link up with my girls Lindsay and Beth to share gratitude. It’s a beautiful practice, and one I’ve come to really look forward to, because it allows me to reflect on a week that was. And let’s be real—sometimes it’s refreshing to give thanks in a world gone mad, eh?
Let’s look at this week’s happy moments:
Dog yoga in a brewery with a girlfriend <3
Having the chance to reconnect with our dearly departed Buster’s other mommy—she stopped by for a visit on Monday to meet Newton and it was great to see her again
A screening of the movie Between Me and My Mind—it’s a documentary about Phish frontman Trey Anastasio and it was released in a theater in my town! I saw so many other Phishies in the audience!
Helping a family find a new pup… fingers crossed their meet and greet goes well
Finally finding the guacamole I’ve searched all over NJ to find (sometimes being a blogger comes with its own set of weird challenges)
Couch covers to protect from pit bull zoomies (thanks, Amazon Prime Day!)
Solo trips to Aldi to get food shopping done (and picking up chocolate hummus)–side note, isn’t my town beautiful? I pass this little waterfall all the time (no filter)
Having my mom and dad over and treating them to pizza
Living around the corner from a Dunkin’ Donuts. Really this should be on my list every week 🙂
