Quiet Time

     It was a quiet weekend and I love those. I like having time to go through all my thoughts a few times, you know? To devote time in the daylight to the thoughts that usually only get attention when my head hits my pillow.
     Things on my mind this weekend
1. Everything that has happened since I quit my job...a stricter budget for Scott and I, great opportunities to write and try new jobs, self-doubt (what was I thinking?), new sponsors, new-found confidence and, most recently, an opportunity that arrived Friday morning (more on this later)
2. Scott and I having a cold and me trying to treat it naturally with some success.
3. Breaking Bad. That show is intense. I was convinced I would stop watching it because it stresses me out, but I can't, we can't. Anyone else? 
4. Surfing. My top turns in particular. I need to focus on strengthening my core (sit ups, Devon! Do them!) so I can really crank those turns around and throw water (especially on dudes paddling out that assume I can't!)
5. Scott and his thoughtful ways. How he always wants to help me get everything I need (and how I'm so glad he's not a meth cooker like Walter from Breaking Bad).

I hope you had a good weekend, too!  


  1. love the pictures :)

    i agree with you. nothing like quiet and peaceful time to clear our mind and collect some thoughts.

    i haven't got the chance to watch Breaking Bad since my friend Katrin suggested it to me months ago :(

  2. Your backyard looks so wonderfully relaxing! Quiet time is awesome sometimes - it's good to be able to sort through your thoughts!

  3. Great pictures, and I'm jealous of your mellow weekend plans. Those are needed just as much as adventurous ones! Your backyard looks like an amazing chill spot though! So cozy!

  4. lol at the idea of a meth cooker husband! I also got addicted to Breaking Bad and can't wait to see how it ends, you know? What will happen to Walt?!
    Glad to hear you had a quiet and nice weekend!

  5. Love the pictures.
    We had a pretty quiet weekend too.. they are nice.
    LOL, I'm glad your hubz isn't a meth cooker either.

  6. I love "quiet time" and the opportunity it presents me to sort through all the things that usually go on in my head at once. It's good to reflect every now and then on all that we are blessed with. Your quiet places looks might cozy, too!

    xo, oolalalauren.

  7. I'm obsessed with your surfing life. It looks dreamy. If I could drop everything in life right now I'd head to the beach... ha, oh well. A girl can dream :) I love your blog Devan!

  8. I can't remember the last time I had a nice quiet relaxing weekend, or even night for that matter! I'm glad you guys were able to find some down time!

  9. Looks so cozy sitting by the fire outside with your man! What a great idea!



  10. sounds like a wonderful weekend!!! looks so cozy. xox

  11. Your weekend and all of your thoughts sounds fabulous. As we left the Grand Del Mar on Sunday, we drove up Coast Highway for as long as we could until about Carlsbad. As we passed through each little beach city I thought of you and imagined you in the ocean or in your cute backyard!! I loved each of those cities!

  12. I still can't get over how adorable your backyard is! And we have been wanting to get into Breaking Bad...that's on our list!

  13. I feel like I need to start watching "Breaking Bad" based on the number of rave reviews I've heard/read! I'll probably get addicted and be in the same boat as you pretty soon!


I love to hear from you! I try to reply within the comment form.
