I Am Thankful for the Right to Marry My Husband

Forty-three years ago, my marriage would have been a crime.

Thanks to fighters like Martin Luther King Jr., I had the right to marry my wonderful husband. This right was not made into law until 1967. I am so grateful. If you're off today, take a moment to remember the reason. Happy MLK Jr Day!

This morning, I hit the gym bright and early. My plan was to swing by the new Vine Ripe market on my way home. I'd hoped to be back by 9am, but when I looked at my phone as I was leaving the market, it was already 9! So... the morning got a bit of a late start. I just couldn't help myself from walking up and down every aisle. That place is amazing!

When I finally made it home, I had a breakfast you're already familiar with...

You'll be glad to know that this was the last veggie patty in the box. Seriously. I need to get ahold of myself.

In the background, you'll see my only purchase from the Vine Ripe market. I'm making Lemon-Spinach Pasta tonight. YUM YUM.

Lunch was boring. I'm out of food for the most part.

I found a can of Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup in the back of my cabinet. I paired it with a piece of toast with jam and an organic apple. I read my bookclub book during lunch. I'm more than half way through already!

Check out the adorable pic I'm using as a bookmark.

Lol!!! That's a 16-year-old version of my hubby! Is he not Rico Suave or what? :D His parents gave me this pic while we were home in Indiana.

I'm about to knock out some articles. I hope you're all having a wonderful day, off or not.
