From the Front Porch

How’s your week going so far? I hope it’s been a good one. As you guys know I usually feature the From the Front Porch post on Fridays but we’ve decided to take a long weekend to rest a bit and get back on track. To be perfectly honest, I feel like I’ve been in a brain fog since my grandparents passed away last week. Stress definitely does some strange things to the body because I swear the minute I got back home, I came down with some sort of bug. It feels like a combination of the flu, strep throat and bronchitis all rolled into one. I’m hoping with some rest, antibiotics, lots of green tea, chicken noodle soup and TLC, I’ll be good as new in no time. Needless to say the events of the past few weeks have forced us to slow down and reevaluate our priorities for the rest of March and April.

Scenes from My Week:


My cousins told me I needed to go to the latest convenience store in our hometown before I left because they had a fabulous selection of candy. I was skeptical at first but it didn’t disappoint * As you can imagine my emotions have been all over the place this week, I saw these gorgeous hydrangeas at our local home improvement store and lost it. They were one of my Granny’s favorites * Even though it’s a bit early for a beach read, I’m looking forward to starting this book this weekend. * My bestie S makes THE best chicken noodle soup. I could eat this stuff by the gallon. *
