Life Lately

I feel as though I've been away from this space for a long time. In a way, I guess I have. Some things have taken place IRL lately that have required greater attention. Unfortunately, that means the blog takes a backseat. 

Still, I love this space. I created it from nothing and I will give the TLC it needs. 

+ I was on a self-imposed pizza ban for the month of May. I'm happy to report that I went 31 days without so much as licking a piece of pizza. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be but that doesn't mean I didn't think about a delicious, cheesy slice the entire time. Now that it's over I'm looking for the right place to celebrate my successful pizza abstinence.

+ Piggy-backing on that success I've deemed June no credit card month. Unless it's a tried and true emergency, I won't be using my credit cards at all for the next 30 days. This is win-win all around. And a real challenge. 

+ Home is where my heart is. 

+ I finally have to concede and admit that my body is changing. At 26 I experienced my first sunburn. At 30 I learned I need to use sunblock in the Caribbean. At 31 I have to accept that my relationship with the sun has changed. It hurts my sun-sponge heart but I can no longer bask like a beached whale. Case in point, I got heat rash on my arms over the weekend. So not cute. 

+ I’m not one to discuss politics, religion, or any other OPINION based topics on this blog, but I am going to say this: the “incident”, a/k/a murder, at the Cincinnati zoo truly irritates me. I realize that a tranquilizer probably would have taken too long to kick in but killing the gorilla was NOT necessary. And the parents? I’m at a loss for words. #JusticeforHarambe

+ The Read You Books challenge started yesterday and I've gotta be honest, I don't want to read anything on my list. It makes me sad to say that but I just don't. Maybe I should start with the shortest one and hope to build up some momentum? 

+ There's a blate scheduled for July. It can't get here fast enough. I love these ladies something fierce! 

+ I was looking forward to Governor's Ball this weekend. Now? Not so much. 90% chance of rain Friday and Sunday. Lovely. 

So that's me in a nutshell. What have you been up to?
