Weekend Reading

Hello! This evening I’m so wiped out, I spent yesterday celebrating St. Patrick’s Day as any self respecting Irish girl does! I had a really great time with a group of good friends. Today I took a four hour self defense course, oh man was that intense, but in a good way. It’s the second course I’ve taken in the past year and I cannot recommend them enough, I always leave those classes with knowledge and tactics that I know will help keep me safe in a bad situation. Take one in your town ladies, you’ll be so glad you did!

Tomorrow I’m headed out of town for a few days to spend some time with my older brother who is remodeling his kitchen for resale, he needs my help picking out finishes so I’m taking a short road trip and giving him some ideas. Hope you all had a great St. Patrick’s Day too!
