Hi friends, and happy Friday! Oh, and friends… I have to tell you, it is good to have a the weekend on our horizon. Yet again, it was another one of those weeks, where I was running around…juggling a bit and trying to add a bit of sparkle to my days at work.
And speaking of sparkle, it’s only fitting that we end this week with a little fun and weekly Friday selfie:
Of this manic busy week, I had a few little highlights…
1. Blog planning- Earlier this week, I found a free blog planner, and after printing a few worksheets and snagging a new binder… let the planning begin! The worksheets help me to brainstorm a bit while coming up with new ideas and staying organized. Here we go for blogging for the second half of the year!
2. Beautiful Summer Nights: One of the things I love about our new house is how wonderfully quiet it is. Even better, the sunsets have been simply divine. I love heading outside, with a ice cold cider for a bit of time in the green space.
3. Summer Reading: I am really looking forward to the release of Harper Lee’s book Go Set a Watchman, which should be out in a few days. But I will need to re-read To Kill a Mockingbird, one of my favorite reads and what could easily be a perfect summer read.
4. Speaking my Truth: This week, I had to be honest with co-workers about things that were not sitting well with my professional mindset and heart.Typically, I am one to avoid anything similar to confrontation but I spoke my truth and stood up for myself. Small moment, but it was perfectly timed with this #TruthBomb:
Friends, the lesson here is not to be afraid to speak your truth in a honest and heartfelt way!
And for this weekend, I am excited I am heading to the wedding of my boss with a whole crew of co-workers. I am ready for another wonderful British celebration with dancing and merriment. There may be photos included on Instagram, it just depends on how much whisky I drink. *Wink…wink!*
What are your plans for the weekend? Whatever you do, I hope have a magical weekend my loves!
