Today's photo-a-day? Something I am grateful for.
I was thinking about all of the things I am grateful for, and it just popped out to me to go snap a picture of our house.
So grateful for a roof over my head, with running water, and a place to lay my head at night.
Oh, and that light on down there in the basement? My study headquarters, so grateful for that room, where I can study distraction-free with a huge white board!

Fire pit!

Good Evening!
We got to spend part of our night snuggled up to this warm fire.
Something about a fire pit, it's just so magical!

Thanks for checking in!

Puppy and Nature

I am kind-of-maybe cheating on this picture since I didn't take it today. I took a few shots last night after an impromptu visit to Lake Zorinsky with my Hubby and Puppy. 
Also, I'm not following any specific photo-a-day plan, rather adapting a few that I like. This one was inspired by finding a shot that was "Man and Nature." I figured my pup and nature was kind of like that!
My initial thoughts were to get some good pictures of the sun going down over Lake Zorinsky, but my hopes were dashed when I realized it was a cloudy night.
We still enjoyed a lovely little evening by the lake, taking the pup for a walk! 

What a sweetheart, huh? Hope everyone is enjoying Memorial Day Weekend! We have been pretty low-key around here, me, battling a cold/allergies, and Dave working hard on his end to program a game!
Stay tuned tomorrow though, I think we are heading to the Rents for a little bar-b-q!

Wow. It has been a long while since I posted! There is so much to catch everyone up on, but for the next three weeks I am studying for boards!
I wanted to do something creative and fun for when I take breaks when I'm studying. My sister-in-law suggested I do a photo-a-day. I loved the idea.
So, Day 1, photo-a-day's name was "Morning."
As I made my way downstairs to my Den to study, I brought with me a smoothie. I decided I wanted it to be my morning picture.

But, my friends, it wasn't just any smoothie--it was loaded with raspberries, blueberries, banana, and even spinach. A great way to wake my brain up for the day!

I got the recipe from here.

Just as a side note, I didn't use orange juice, I usually just use water in my smoothies, but it was still yum!
