What I'm Loving Wednesday 6/15

What I'm Loving Wednesday

I'm loving ...

... that we are exactly halfway through June today. Which means we're closer to my birthday month. I love birthday month.

... that a friend and I brewed last night for the first time in months. Our lives are just so crazy we haven't had a chance to make beer. But in about a month, we'll have a mandarin orange wheat to sip on for the rest of the summer.

... that the reviews of Dropped Third Strike are starting to roll in and are mostly positive. There was one comment about the ending, but I fully expected some feedback on that aspect. Other than that, people really seem to be enjoying it. And are starting to demand the next one. That's super encouraging.

... that this week marks 10 years since I moved back to Iowa from Texas. I still miss some of the people and things (OK, mostly the Rangers and Whataburger), but it was absolutely the right decision for me. Being near family is the best, and I've found a new appreciation for my home state that I didn't have when I was growing up here.

... this song Brendan James wrote just after the Newtown shootings. It seems relevant again after the events in Florida last week. I love Brendan, but I hope someday this song becomes irrelevant or dated.

What are you loving this week?


  1. My husband and I have friends who live near Dallas, TX, and we love going to visit there. Whataburger is one of our favorite things about Texas! hahaha :)

  2. I'm glad you're getting great feedback on Dropped Third Strike! That's awesome!

    On June 30, it'll be 10 years since I moved back from Utah to California. Where does the time go??
