Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, this weekend we went to the market, had a lazy Saturday morning, ran on the trail, and learned how to make sweet potato leek soup. Loved this weekend. Dear Sarah Elizabeth, you are my new 5 year old neighbor from Memphis who likes strawberries and playing in the dirt. I think we're going to be great friends. Dear College Seniors, may these last few days of school be your most memorable yet. Keep making your days count rather than counting your days. So proud of you! Dear Husband, whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend was smoking crack because the mango you left me under our giving tree yesterday was L-E-G-I-T.

What was the best part of your weekend?? Hope it was filled with people and places that bring you joy. PS, if you're planning on running with us this Saturday in the Sudan Footrace you need to register under our tribe ASAP! So far 42 of you have signed up. Way to go, home skillets. And if you're able to join us for breakfast after the race we'd love to meet you at Cafe Brazil (University Park location). Get ready for the best migas and fruit pancrepes of your life!

Whole30 Day 21: Strawberries, Pineapple, Blueberries, Chili Lime Cashews, Banana, Odwalla Smoothie, In-n-Out burger animal style (no sauce), protein style (no cheese), 2 scrambled eggs.
Whole30 Day 22: Three Banana Muffins, Strawberries, Banana, Roasted Almonds, Sweet Potato & Leek Soup, Jazz Apple, Justin's Almond Butter, Spaghetti Squash.
Overview: Week 3 definitely flew by the quickest. This week I hope to finish strong even though I know I'll be tested like crazy as Tim and I road trip it to the Hill Country. No alcohol, no chocolate, no donuts from Gordough's in Austin and no ice cream from the Gruene General Store. Wah. On a more encouraging note, several of you have emailed saying you're starting Whole30 this week. I'm so proud of you! Trust me, if I can do this shiz, anyone can. You're gonna do great!

Best part of my weekend was hitting up our favorite little plant place & letting the kids pick their own blooms to pot later today. (Now to make myself step out of the way & give them free reign on their planting creativity... ;)

Best part of my weekend: Painting picture frames and watching the Braves alone on Friday night.
Some intensely needed alone-time happening in the 208 that night. SO thankful.
