{pretty, happy, funny, real}

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~


It’s farmer’s market time! Our local farmer’s market is starting up again and we visited the other day and bought some fresh carrots (orange, white, and purple!) and roasted them up for dinner with some potatoes and Brussels sprouts, to go on the side of some roasted chicken. Delicious and very pretty.



Okay, running does not really make me happy. I don’t enjoy it much at all when I’m doing it. However, Chad and I have started running together and we have a workout plan so that I can get into shape for the 5K we’re running in June. So maybe “happy” isn’t the right word, but I’m definitely proud of us. It feels productive and healthy and much better than just going home and sitting on the couch all night. So while the act of running doesn’t make me happy, the theory of it does and the results– hopefully dropping a couple pounds and being able to run a 5K without dying– do make me happy.



This isn’t the first time she’s done this, but she does panic every time.

It’s a busy time of year for me at work, with lots of projects and events and big stuff happening. I have a couple major video editing projects to do, plus other marketing and event prep on top of the usual emails and social media and web updates. I worked until 11:30 p.m. the other night. It’s tiring, which makes it hard to keep up with things outside of work, too, but things will calm down in a couple weeks (I think).
