Today I’m linking up with Lisa Leonard for Hello Monday.
I did the dumbest thing of my life yesterday.
I washed my cell phone in the washing machine. After submerging the phone (sans SIM card) in a bowl of rice (where it is currently relaxing, and hopefully recovering) I drowned my sorrow and frustration in chocolate. And for once, chocolate did not make it all better.
So as I wallow in self-pity and mourn the potential loss of my phone, I’ll share the better parts of my weekend.
Hello handsome professor who has been sporting a bow tie recently. Quite the debonair theologian, isn’t he?
Hello my sweet Valentine. A quiet evening at home was just what I needed.
Hello red daisy that has braved the not-so-winter weather and added a brush of color to our otherwise barren flowerbed.
Hello spring-like weather and open windows and porch swing that creaks a perfect country melody. My front porch has been beckoning me to spend some quality time there with a good book and a glass of ice tea.
Hello sweet Frankie. You didn’t seem to enjoy the lovely weekend weather as much as I did.
Hello Big Red, you classic farm truck in need of some minor repairs. I’m so thankful The Professor also knows a thing or two about auto mechanics.
Hello winter sun sinking low behind the big oak tree. You cast long shadows on our yard, and provide a lovely view out my kitchen window.
Hello obvious truth. Who writes “so true!” in their Bible? It’s all true!

Hello Monday. I’m embracing the opportunity to be a little less plugged in and will try not to fret over my water-logged cell phone.
P.S. Don’t forget to RSVP to this month’s #ARDParty – you don’t want to miss a chance to win a $30 Anthropologie gift card, do you?
Goals Q & A with Alys Hejl
ARD: When did you first set goals for your business/blog? How do you hold yourself accountable to accomplish those goals?
AH: I first set goals for my blog in August. I hold myself accountable to accomplishing those goals by #1 telling my husband #2 writing them down and #3 I am part of a mastermind group to keep me accountable. I give myself weekly, monthly, and yearly goals and it’s really rewarding when I can mark off one I’ve accomplished.
