The last time I posted some recent peeks into my daily life using Instagram photos, I explained why I sometimes feel hesitant about doing so. You guys were awesome in the comments and said that you enjoy these glimpses (and that many of you who blog do the same), so I decided to continue to share this way on occasion. Those of you on Instagram may have already seen some of these, but they pretty concisely sum up much of what I've been up to over the last week or so.
So yeah, it's Monday. I'm usually not fan of Mondays (at all), but this Monday is okay by me. I have a very full schedule this week work-wise, and then I'm leaving for a quick weekend trip on Friday to meet some of my very best friends (three of whom were bridesmaids in my wedding last year) in Colorado, and I can't wait. The plan: go to see Robbie and the band play Red Rocks Friday, head north for an old friend's wedding Saturday, then meet back up with Robbie in Boulder Sunday. That evening, he and I fly home together for a couple of days before he leaves for tour again. I used to be a very regular traveler, but when Bubby dog got older, I didn't feel right leaving him and I stopped. It was time for a break anyway, and over that year or so when I mainly stayed put, I really learned to appreciate being home. That said, I've never quite been able to fully kick the wanderlust. The next few months are full of travel plans again, and I'm really looking forward to it.
