Friday Update

Well hello, Friday. It’s been a week. One I am happy to not have to repeat if I’m honest. Of course I debated even writing this post but you know what? After 8 years of blogging, writing feels therapeutic. I almost feel like I am chatting with girlfriends when I share on this space. So, this is certainly not a Friday favorites but it is an update as well as an outlet. Thanks for being here.

I am writing this on Thursday morning while I wait for the rush hour traffic to subside so I can leave for the hospital. I shared here about my husband’s surgery. This year is our 30th wedding anniversary and I’ll say, we have been through ALOT in that time. But this kind of thing is next level and really had me understanding the commitment and love that my marriage is based on.

Friday Update

The week began with my birthday on Monday. Hello, 56! The older I get the more I realize that age is in fact just a number. Since my husband had surgery scheduled for Tuesday it meant Monday was a no solid food and basically a clean-out-your-system kind of day for him. All clear liquids and jello so there would be no celebrating that day. We managed to have a nice weekend ahead of time and I spent my birthday running a few errands which was just fine with me.

We had dinner on Sunday night with my mom as well as my sister and her family. It was a nice celebration and I felt so special. They bought me balloons! Such a sweet gesture!

I picked up this book by Elin Hilderbrand at the library and have been reading it during my husband’s hospital stay. It has been a while since I read one of her books but I think this is my favorite so far!

The last thing I wanted to share with you is that Avara is having an exclusive sale for this weekend only, 6/7-6/9. Use this code: JUNE20 to get 20% off! That’s an incredible discount and is only being shared by affiliates. I really do love the pieces I’ve purchased and received from Avara and think you will too. They do a great job of sharing sizing info for each piece. Shop the website here.

That’s a wrap on my Friday update. I hope what I wrote makes sense, sometimes my brain works faster than my fingers type but I bet you get the gist. My apologies if I have not been commenting on your posts next week should be business as usual!
