My dear husband decided to surprise me today with roses! And I still had roses f/m valentines day, so now I have combined them into a lovely pink & red bouquet in my antique milkglass vase. AND he unloaded the dishwasher!! (that's a big deal for him--at least to do it w/out being asked).

butchy loves flowers

It was really good timing for me. I have been feeling somewhat strange about us. We've just both been snippy at each other lately. Nothing huge, but we also struggle with being so wrapped up in what we have going individually that we forget how to really connect with one another. We're putting more effort into it though, and that always helps! He is the love of my life--I can't believe that our 7 year anniversary is coming up in a few weeks! (dating, not marriage anniversary)

On another topic...I baked sourdough bread today and my house smells amazing! I love baking in general, but there is something special about making bread. I love the way that it feels when I punch it down and shape it into loaves after letting it rise all day. So gooey and warm and yeasty...that is true comfort! I just have to get some of this out of my house so I don't ruin the diet!

This week has started off crazy at work. I swear all of Bowling Green is sick--including half our staff! Hopefully it will slow down soon.


  1. I hate it when people are like, "I don't like flowers because they just die." Well, I'm going to die too one day. That doesn't make me dislike humans. Flowers are always nice. Love you. I'm sick, so I don't know if I'll be at Bible Study. :(

  2. I've been trying to write on here for days, maybe today it will work. Patrick can be sweet when he wants to be.
    Sarah your bread is like crack in our house!!!! We are all addicted.
