Today marks the start of something new for me. The past few weeks have been a lesson in “going with the flow,” so to say. In a positive way, of course!
Do you remember what it felt like to walk in to your first day of school? I moved almost every other year during my childhood, so being the “new kid” was a pretty typical situation for me to be placed in. The nerves…memorizing a new schedule…learning new names and faces…it was all very exciting but scary at the same time. Now, instead of being the new “kid,” I’m one of the new teachers in town.
So…I’m hoping you will bear with me for the next week or so as I break in my new schedule. I’m not going away by any means whatsoever (I love my blog too much), but I will be rearranging my time a bit as I transition out of working from home during the week to being a teacher. And if you’re wondering: I’ll be teaching technology. Very fitting, don’t you think?
I decided to do things a little bit different with today’s round up. Instead of focusing on style-related items, I am breaking out a list of my absolute favorite kitchen gadgets and small appliances.
I feel like everyone has those little tools that really help them out on a daily basis…that is true for me at least! They are somewhat small things I can’t live without, and I would recommend that everyone have on hand in their own home. Without further ado, here are mine…I own every one of these gadgets myself, so I can personally vouch for how much I need them on a regular basis!
What kitchen tools can you not live without?
So, I didn’t really make much point of mentioning this on the blog…but Monday was my birthday. Another year older, another year wiser?
Monday happened to be a beautiful day for the beach, so Justin and I decided to take Lucia along with us in the morning/afternoon for some time in the sand and surf. I haven’t really been to the beach much this season so far, so it was definitely a welcome trip.
How in the world…
It’s hard to believe that our wedding day was three years ago. How did time pass so quickly? Just the other day, I was in a store and mentioned I was purchasing something in preparation for my wedding anniversary. “Oh! Your first anniversary?” she asked. “No – third, actually!” She seemed surprised by my answer and noted that I must have been married very young, since I still look like a baby. Oh well! I am just glad to know that (sometimes) I look younger than my real age. It’s bound to catch up to me some day…
