Weekend Things

You guys, can I just be really open and honest right now?  I feel really really weird posting about trivial things like facials and paella when there are heartbreaking things going on in other parts of the world.  And I’m not even just talking about Paris — though I am so horrified for that beautiful, romantic, magical city we were just in last year for our honeymoon — because there is destruction and sadness all over the world that maybe doesn’t always reach my Facebook news feed and that makes me feel guilty and ignorant and just sort of helpless.  So yeah, I guess I’m pretty confused about how to deal with these feelings and talk about these things and that’s just where I’m at right now.

In other news, Joey and I went to dinner on Friday night and even though my Magic Shroom burger was meh, I’ll take a night out with my husband any day.  And Saturday was so super sweet because I got to have coffee with my mama and then she gave me a massage.  I’m so grateful for her.  And yesterday, I drove Joey down the street to see the progress that’s been made on a house in our neighborhood where an 80-year-old man lives and had a drunk driver crash into his home four years ago.  All the improvements were community funded and I think that’s so incredible and a good reminder that even though there’s a lot of bad in the world, there’s a lot of good too!
