around here · an update
Life is ticking along and I'm thoroughly enjoying summertime, even the rainy days. We're spending time outside when we can, doing lots of grilling, eating lots of fresh fruit and veggies.
A few days each week, Steven & I have been going to a trail close to our house after work. He runs and I walk or bike. I'm still going to gym a couple days, too, but it's really nice to go together. And I love that we still have hours of daylight left when we get home.
It's hard to believe, but we've been in the house for over a year now. It's wonderful. I still love it. We've only hung exactly five things on a total of three walls, so it's on my summer to-do list to buy frames, print some photos and get lots more things hung. I also have some crafty projects I've had on my list for ages... I miss being crafty!
Our front flower bed is finally done! We have a little more work to do in the front yard, but the flower bed is done and mulched. I've also got another container garden going. Tomatoes, lettuces, peppers, parsley and basil. Posts in progress...
Steven & I are working on planning out the rest of our summer. We know we're going to Chicago in August for Lollapalooza, but we'd like to get to St. Louis a couple times and maybe take a mini-honeymoon since we never took one. And I want to visit more places in Columbia, or near by, that we've not been to yet.
