for frequent highlights, follow me @robina_black

highlights from my week:
- i got some happy mail from Gina who i met via the snail mail collective! i love getting random & fun things in my mailbox!
- my mother-in-law and my sister-in-law both have puppies that are 6 months apart (i think!) and they had a puppy play date the other day. it's funny because one is a springer spaniel & huge and the other one (pictured) is a poma-poochie and so tiny!
- speaking of happy mail, i got my first Darby Smart box in the mail a few weeks ago and Thomas & i had so much fun woodburning our own cutting board! read all about how awesome Darby Smart is here!
- we have 2 acres of land which has lots of trees on it, but also a field towards the back that's in the middle of the trees. Thomas recently cut the field so we took our dogs out there to play & they LOVED it!

i've been working most of the weekend. tomorrow is D Day at work - we go live with our new system, new chart of accounts, and new legal entity set up. so my work life is about to get super busy! i love blogging because for me it is REST. it helps me to process life & think through things & share things & just feel rested. but things may be a little more quiet around here over the next month or two. not stagnant, just a bit more quiet! :)
