I did some deep thinking last week when I was taking out the trash.  As strange as that sounds, it’s 100% true.  Honestly, I start thinking pretty deeply every time I clean and take out the trash.   It makes me sad.  Not because I have to walk it all the way to the dumpster myself even though I asked Carl too, but because there’s just so much of it.  I just feel so wasteful.  How can I produce so much trash?

Happy Friday!  I’m super excited to be linking up again with Chasing Happy for her weekly Pieces of Happy.  I must be honest with you all, this has been a very rough week.  On Monday my mom contacted me to tell me our family pet, a sweet chocolate lab named Amos, had to be put down.  We had him since I was 14 and he was a great family dog.
