How can four weeks just fly by, but also feel like a lifetime? Although I mentioned my self-imposed blogging break on A Life with Luster’s Facebook Page, and although I needed it, I still feel panicky about being gone for so long. So much has transpired….

First of all, we made our third trip of the year back to Kansas. It was really wonderful to see so many of our loved ones. It was also a bit hectic, trying to stuff everything into 2.5 days.

It was so hectic, in fact, that I got sick. : ( But on the positive side, right around the same time I learned that The Social Avenue had secured it’s first client contract! : )

Fast forward four days and Cory & I are in Washington for Labor Day Weekend. I totally fell in love with the lush, green coast. It was hard not to when we woke up to this view each morning. I would take my coffee outside and read – the weather was perfect (mid-60’s to 70’s) and the air was fresh with that salt water smell. Ahhh…more on that later.

In between all of that, I’ve been to Pure Barre about 12 times, finally caught up on laundry & got our place back in shape, spent some quality time with our friends and our pups, got into a groove at work and with managing my first client. Now I’m looking forward to life slowing down for the remainder of the year.

For once, we have no out of state travel plans on the horizon (minus a trip home to Kansas for Thanksgiving). We are, however, expecting not one, but TWO guests this fall and potentially moving places. Other than that, it looks to be a quiet little fall for us.

Have a great week! 


The Social Avenue

I am super excited to share with you all a “project” I have been working on for the past three & a half months. Today, my friend, coworker & business partner, Kate Simon & I are launching a social media marketing business.

The idea came to Cory in, of all places, a brewery. Go figure. But since that moment in January, we have been off – brainstorming, establishing, purchasing, branding, learning & creating – working our little tails off! And today we finally get to launch & are excited to show our loved ones all of our hard work.
