Friday Favorites

It’s been 83 days since it last rained in Arizona. Tomorrow, that’s all about to change.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the endless sunshine and clear blue skies, but there’s just something so peaceful about a dreary Saturday afternoon. It’s that little pocket of time where I can pause everything and decompress. There’s no agenda I have to follow, no deadline I’m required to meet, and no trip I’m slated to fulfill. It’s as if my day-to-day responsibilities are bottled up and put on the shelf, even if it’s only for awhile.

Andrew and I will be using this rare weekend to start the dreaded packing process, but don’t worry. We’ll still squeeze in a few hours for pizza-making and Oscar-viewing. I can hear the couch calling my name.

Come Monday, everything will go back to full speed. I’ve got my mom in town for a visit, followed by our big move into Old Town Scottsdale. Once the month of March arrives, it’s project after project, sprinkled with a few mini vacations in between. It’s such an exciting time, but a busy one for sure!

This is my weekend. This is my calm before the storm.
