Good Morning friends! It is rare that I say this, but hallelujah it’s Friday! Between settling in to a new job, getting to see family, and the usual conundrums life throws in our way from time to time, I for one am ready for the long weekend, how about you?
First, Thanks Mom and Dad!
The final week of August turned out to be a doozy (what a great word) for me. Having my parents in town for the week was the ultimate blessing. It will never cease to amaze me how much more manageable the day, a situation, or a task can seem simply knowing your family is close.
Second, Speaking of Family, Williamsburg, Here We Come!
I come from a family of super cool history nerds. I guess that is what growing up in St. Augustine, Fl, the nation’s oldest city does to you.
One of my sister and I’s fondest memories is our trip to Williamsburg waaayyyy back in 2003! Despite all of our family living in North Carolina and Virginia, and the fact that we are also super cool roller-coaster buffs and Busch Gardens is located in Williamsburg, we have only made the trip once! The little brother and sister are too cool living it up in their senior year of college, sorry guys, stay out of trouble…
Ya’ll if there is one thing I am all about these days it is meals I can make up once, and eat on throughout the week. Not only does this Chicken and Cauliflower Red Lentil Curry fit the bill, but it is gosh darn good, and incredibly comforting after a long day.
Fourth, Links I loved
I love this explicately for the fact that it talks about financial goals. I realized, that I truly do not have any. I already save for emergencies, vacations, and retirement, but I need a true goal!

Not really, but seriously.
Don’t toy with my emotions, please say it’s true!
