I've been wanting to write, but so much has gone on in my life the past few months. Sometimes (like this morning) it's a good diversion. I was up early (4:45 to be exact!) and took a fitness class at 5:45. So I am up drinking another cup of coffee. My uncle passed away this week and it's devastating. I wish I could take the pain away from my Aunt and cousins. I wish I could give them strength. The only thing I can do is be there for them and to support and love them. This quote reminds me of my uncle. He was one to make someone feel important. He asked questions about my life and my children and listened and was genuinely interested. This quote has so much truth to it.
On another note, a diversion... I saw these boots in my email and totally love them.
I haven't bought anything at Express in a long time, but I went on their website the other night and found a lot of great things. And, they always have great sales and promotions.
Especially love the back on this top:
I love this wooden monogram ornament. It might even look cute included in a gallery wall. I'm already thinking holiday gifts!! This website is a good one for inexpensive and unique gifts and stocking stuffers.

I just saw this recipe on Pinterest this morning and plan to make it for the girls since we have an abundance of bananas in our kitchen. I'm the only one in our family who doesn't like bananas and I want to get rid of them soon since the kitchen is starting to smell like them. Which probably means they are the perfect ripeness for these muffins.
Have a great weekend!
