warning: it's just jibber jabber

It was glorious to wake up and realize it is finally Friday. Fridays are what it's all about. The reason we can get up on Monday mornings and plow through the week. Friday because the weekend is at your fingertips. A perfect, pure, anxiously awaited, sipping-piping-hot-coffee-with-makeup-free-face, the hope that it will indeed live up to all you've anticipated, kind of day.

Friday. Fridays are the best.

And especially excited for this Friday because we've had some kind of week. {Or more like two weeks.} I mentioned that our puppy Dakota, had surgery. That one surgery turned into two. Through the surgery came an infection. One antibiotic turned to five. Stitches for 10 days turned to 14. And well, you get the jist. We are certainly doing the best that we can, staying positive, and making the best decisions we know how. It has consumed us but we are trying to stop. Stop and see the big picture. It's one day at a time.

I know that it's how you come out of challenges and hard decisions that make you who you are. I just hope ours is something to be proud of. I'm pretty certain it will be.

If you're still reading, I give you kudos for listening to me vent. {insert blog hug}

In other new, the garden is coming along. We've been enjoying sweet grape tomatoes, jalapenos, tons of green herbs, and a couple big red, juicy tomatoes. Our green peppers are starting to grow and look healthy. The onions are still a mystery, we won't know about those for a couple more weeks. We are very pleased with the progress of our very first garden. And have already learned lots of the do's and dont's!

These pictures were taken a few weeks ago...

It's also been fun to share the produce with our friends & family!

We are taking a few days off next week. I need some Hunkaroonie time. Not worrying about vet bills, medications, infections, and what color Dakota's poop is. We're on the up and up. Yes, we now have to stick around town but we'll be soaking up what's left of this sweet sweet summertime.

And you better believe, I've got high hopes for a weekend that will indeed live up to all I've anticipated.

And I certainly hope that for you too.

PS- To our friends & family who have been concerned about Dakota and supported us through this LITTLE bump in the road (you know who you are), thank you. YOU have shown me YOUR true character and for that I'm forever grateful.
