Andrew and I spent the week in Palm Springs. I love that Palm Springs is just two hours away. It makes getting away and getting back home so much easier. Usually when we get home from a vacation we’re completely exhausted and we leave our suitcases full for days and live out of random clothes for weeks.  But last night we unpacked everything and even did all our laundry. It felt so good to get home with a little energy, unpack and then relax with our favorite pups.  I love vacations, but equally love coming home especially the puppy welcome party.

Andrew and I spent last week in Mexico (look out for photos next week). It was absolutely incredible. Exactly what we both needed- fun in the sun and plenty of R&R. It’s always bitter sweet coming home from a vacation, but I had plenty of fun this week to make the transition back to real life fun. Happy Friday!

|all day, everyday. eat happy.|

 It’s been a positive week. I studied (FINALLY) for my compressive Master’s of Public Health exit exam, which brought me a sense of peace because boy oh boy I’ve been stressing. It feels good to be productive. Here’s a look at my week and last weekend that made me smile. Have a great weekend.

Life has been a whirlwind of emotions. I’ve been spending lots of precios time with my family. As my friend said, my family is a “rare breed” who puts family first. Here are a few little things that made me smile this week.
