Monday Bits

It's Monday morning, and I'm feeling like a million bucks.

Cory and I got away for the first time since October, and while that doesn't sound that long ago, the months since then have been weird and hard in the way real life is prone to being.


We've been operating in a place of quiet exhaustion. Some nights I feel like a total cry baby, like what the heck is my problem??? Then I remember what happened in January and what happened three days after that. We've rocked it, but we've earned the right to be tired.

It's amazing what a couple days of space and calm can do.

And I use "calm" in its most relative sense.
Friday night we stood in the second row, front and center, for my first Trampled by Turtles concert.


DUUUUUUUUUUUUDE.
(and I don't say that lightly)

I'm hooked. Officially. I've been to tons of concerts over my lifetime but nothing has matched this, not even Avett Brothers, and I don't mind at all that it makes Cory mad when I say so.

You need to get acquainted with TBT. And if you ever get a chance to see them, GO. Do it for me.
It's pure art. For me, it was almost church.

 
You already know I'm an affiliate for Tea Collection.

Here's the thing, I could never/would never pay full price for their stuff. But they have the BEST sales. And it's all global-minded (love), super comfy and cute (love-love), and made by folks who are paid a living wage (gah). 

Right now they're running a super-secret sale that you can only access from their affiliates. This sale isn't available on their website, but you can get there from here!  


Stock up, sisters. Sale starts today and runs through Wed. April 29th.
Oh, and one last thing.
I got this guy back last night.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT.

I'm so happy about it. I can't stop staring.

  1. I dont even know Cory (except through the blog of course) ,but I am cheering right along with you. Hallelujah for his clean-shaven face! My husband grows a beard every fall/winter. I can handle it for a few months and that's it.

  2. I had read your January post about Robert before, but today I re-read it and this hit me hard - "because we never outrun our chances to come home ."
    So happy that you and Cory had a get away! Yes, real life is hard!

  7. Facial hair is not something our marriage is mature enough for yet. Maybe after the 2nd decade? Also, just making sure you didn't miss my latest blogpost. You have GOT to see my baby (and maybe buy a tank top).
