Wrist Tattoos

My favorite part of my tattoos is something I didn’t even anticipate: whenever I’m doing *anything* with my hands, the part that shows on both wrists is “love”.
I love it! ❤️

Oh, man, y’all — I had great big plans for a productive week this week before we continue with our summer fun, and I don’t feel like I got anything done. Jackson’s had as many bad nights as good nights, and I’ve gotten distracted by family drama on two different days (some good, some bad). I have so much on my to-do list, but when I sit down at my computer, I just feel uninspired.

In other news, I decided to start a Whole30 on a whim this week. A friend of mine was starting hers, so I went ahead and jumped in with both feet. My hope is that I can kick my sugar/carb habit and get back on track with making better choices. I’m keeping it simple this time, with sauteed veggies and eggs for breakfast, roasted veggies and meat for lunch and Whole30-friendly meals for the whole family for dinner, and  so far (today is Day 3), I’m enjoying it.

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading and what I’m pinning to see the other posts that make me stop and think (or, you know, drool…). You’ll find new posts all week long!
