{so random these days}

beautiful desert browns
{beautiful desert browns}
♥ a week ago i wasn't feeling particularly inspired by all the blah browns but today is an entirely different story. today i looked closer and i listened. here are a few of the beautiful browns i found at work, including C with her new polka dot chalk. look at that tan chiquita banana! the girl is a real fish, i tell ya. :) i've been taking the kids for a short morning jaunt around the property and we're swimming in the late afternoons.

♥ there is a website called exercise friends which allows you to create a profile for yourself, including your location and what activities you enjoy. i thought this could be a good way for me to actually meet someone, make a friend, and workout. i found someone that also just relocated to la quinta with her new husband and is my very age. we live a mile apart and near the community center so we're planning to meet there at 6 am (*gulp*) on the weekdays for a 30 min. walk before work. she's also going to try out jazzercise with me on saturdays. i hope everything works out and we like each other. i haven't really had the time or opportunity to make friends (in 'real life') for too looooooong a time.

Thanks for the inspiring browns. I normally think of brown as such an autumn hue, but these were actually perfect for right now.

You're very brave in reaching out to new exercise buddies; hope it works out well! (get it? "works out"? ugh....sorry.)

J- I hope exercise friends works. If it doesn't, some of my best friends live in La Quinta and they are fantastic people. If you and your hubby want another fun couple to hang out with, shoot me an email and I'll put ya'll in touch. They have lived there for a couple of years, but are always looking for new young people to spend time with.

its funny how the older
we get
the harder it is to make
new friends
or at least,
that has been my experience...
even work related friends,
i find it hard to move past
"work"

good luck with the exercise buddy!
i hope it works out for you.
and polka dot chalk!
how cool is that!

Joleen,

You have an amazing gift to see the beauty that lies beneath the surface. These pictures are indeed beautiful. Thank you for sharing. Also I wanted to take a second to cheer you on in your most recent endeavor to change your lifestyle into a more health-conscious one. That is no easy task and yet you are facing it head on. Keep up the great work and have fun with your new friend.
