It’s Saturday and that means it is time to reflect on the week and celebrate things both big and small. Join our community and celebrate this week by linking up or just stopping by the host Ruth Ayres’ blog to read others’ celebrations.
Sunshine Through the Sunroof
We recently traded in a car so that we could bring our monthly payments down and have more money to budget toward paying off debt. Both my husband and I were very happy with this decision. The best part about it is that now we have two cars with sunroofs. Now, don’t get me wrong, we don’t have super fancy cars. We just have cool features in our cars.
Sunroofs make me happy. I love sunshiny days and I love being able to enjoy them in my car. It just makes my day brighter. One of the best memories I have of my father was during the three months before he passed away, when he finally purchased a Mercedes Benz. He had dreamed his entire life about being able to have a Mercedes. He finally got to a place in which he could afford to lease the lowest priced sedan and he went for it. He LOVED that car. And it had a sunroof. Driving down the roads with our windows down and the sunroof open and blasting folk music is one of the best movies that plays in my mind. I was thirteen and I seldom had times when I thought my dad was cool, but these were moments in which I just enjoyed being with him. My sunroof now reminds me of this. Every. Single. Time.
A Rambunctious Duo
We have our hands full with our two dogs. Kiko is the newer addition to our house, and he sure is full of energy! The two dogs play every morning from the very first second that we let Kiko out of his crate. It is so much fun to have such energy in this household. And, they are pretty darn cute!
I love the slower pace of summertime. I have spent a lot of time making goals and doing some work, but mostly we are just playing it by ear after a two week visit from my brother-in-law. We loved having him here, but it is great to have our house back to normal.
What do you have to celebrate this week? I would love to hear from you in the comments!
