Is it summer yet?

Is it summer yet?

I’m happy to say I’m back after a brief blog hiatus and what’s been an odd whirlwind week. I’m not quite fully recovered from the intense pace I’ve been keeping, and coupled with a terrible lack of quality sleep, I’m definitely dragging. Part of me feels like a 3-day weekend is just what I need but since sleeping in appears to not be in the cards, it seems rather pointless to take the time off. Most of my exhaustion is…

Lesson of the Day: Don’t Waste My Time

I’m really sensitive about how I utilize my time. When it feels like my time is being wasted, I immediately become defensive.

Learn How to Extract the Beauty in a Hectic Month

Happy Easter!! I’m in complete awe of how quickly April is upon us. I only pulled out my Easter decorations last weekend, the holiday just sort of snuck up on me. I don’t know that I’m going to put them all away after tomorrow, I think I want a little more time enjoying all the pastel glittery goodness that has invaded my home. This year March Madness describes more than a college basketball tournament. It’s pretty much been my life…
