highlights from my week:
- i mailed out my #etsyswap2014 package on monday! i am so very excited to see all of the packages that have traveled through the postal service! if you participated, don't forget to link up with Rivers & Roads and Taking Steps Home on April 3!

- i just love tea - especially on an afternoon of a really long day at work! i will probably be drinking tons of tea during the next few months as we do this system launch!

- do you play sudoku?! i am so obsessed with it! Thomas & i have been playing it recently and at the end of one of my books there is SAMURAI sudoku puzzles! they are intense!

- have i mentioned that i love our basset?! i love our sheltie too, but she doesn't cooperate for pictures as well!

- Saturday we had our third passport to fun date! we went to Dublin, Ireland & there will be a post soon! (of course if you follow me on instagram you've already seen a preview picture!)

- over the weekend this blog went through some changes & i couldn't be more excited about it! you can read all about the switch here!
