hello monday

February 7th | hello monday

hi friends! friday david’s cold seemed to be improved, but our weekend went awry when late saturday evening it was clear david was worse, not better. so i took him to the emergency room and he was admitted to the hospital with double pneumonia! it’s amazing what a round of strong antibotics and IV fluids can do–the next day he was so improved, they let us go home. {yay!}

hello home!  goodbye hospital.

hello our own beds and a good night’s sleep.

hello wellness. we’re so OVER this cold.

hello gorgeous sunset in morro bay

hello taco temple {one of my fave restaurants}

hello taquitos and dulce de leche

hello mound of laundry i didn’t tackle this weekend

hello pink blooms and sunshine

hello shiny, new week, we’re ready for you!

what are you saying hello to today?

    So glad that David’s doing better – the science nerd in me says to make sure he finishes the whole round of antibiotics, even though he feels better!

    Those pink blooms are absolutely gorgeous, and they’re making me so sad that all I seem to be able to photograph lately is snow. Spring will be so, so appreciated.
