I am not quite sure how Friday got here so quickly this week. It’s been a week of contrasts… LOTS of work during the days, but staying in and laying low at night. Eager for our vacation, but needing time to move a little slower so that I can get everything that needs to get done beforehand completed. Happy for a new little addition to our family, but sad about some other family situations.
I laid in bed last night and just felt like things were moving so quickly around me and I need them just to slow down a bit. Do you ever feel that way? I literally felt like I could use two more days in the week before today. Back when I worked in a corporate job, I never, ever would have taken a few more work days to my week, but somehow now, it feels like I always could use more time. My stomach literally aches thinking about how excited I am for my trip, yet everything that I should do before we leave in 20 days. I think it’s going to be a working weekend, y’all.
There were a few little things that have been going on in my brain this week:
The List wk 12
ON MY NIGHTSTAND – in one of my mastermind groups this week, the girls mentioned the book Sprit Junkie by Gabrielle Bernstein and so I went and picked it up. I am so excited to dig in, but I still have to finish my current two books. Have you read it? If so, did you love it?
SPRING MEANS – citrus, and cocktails on the patio, and parties, and outdoor entertaining. I can’t wait, and these lemon napkins from Serena & Lily are going to make the upcoming entertaining that much sweeter. I don’t buy pretty napkins to use as napkins, however, I usually just buy them more as decoration to line a beverage tray or tie around a carafe. I can get buy spending less, but still making an impact that way.
FINAL TOUCHES – we only have a couple small things that still have to be done for our trip next month! We are considering a day trip to Capri (based on some of your suggestions!) and also thinking about doing a tour guide in Rome since there is so much history we want to learn about. Any tips on those two points would be awesome!
MEOW – speaking of spring (and vacation) I picked up these Cyprus sandals from J. Crew this week and cannot wait to take them for a spin!
GIRL TO WATCH – if you guys don’t follow Lauren Kelp, you should. I just cannot get over how talented this girl is! She is the editor of LaurenKelp.com and also Darling Magazine (which is AMAZING). We have a little collab coming up in May which I’m pretty excited for too!
I hope your weekend is filled to the brim with wonderfulness! Tell me, what are you up to?
