I’ve seen a ton of people share what’s going on in their lives “currently,” so I thought I’d hop on the bandwagon as I think it’s a neat way to give insight into what’s going on, plain and simple. The good, the bad, the inspiring, and everything in between. So here we go :
LISTENING TO As of late, I’ve been listening to a lot of Ellie Goulding’s new album, Halcyon. It’s very ethereal ( great to work to ), sometimes a little weird ( in a good way ), and full of dance like beats to make anyone happy. I decided I liked this one while I was driving through the Lowry tunnel in Minneapolis. Everything got dark + mystical … I hope that doesn’t make me sound weird. I kind of am though.
THINKING ABOUT how to relax. I’m the kind of person who stresses out all too easily in almost any situation. The simplest of things will turn my stomach in knots and fill my mind with worry, which isn’t that fun. I’ve been trying a few new things and tricks to help keep me balanced. Baby steps. If you have any other tips, please do share!
LOVING that Michael and I have been cooking most nights. We fell into the horrible pattern this year of eating out after a busy day, which happened more often than not. Instead, we’ve been sitting down on Sundays and making lists of what we can make during the week before grocery shopping. Oh, we also like to shop with our stomachs which is never good ( Christmas Tree Debbie Cakes, woops ), so these lists have helped keep us on track. Some of our favorites so far have been avocado fries, caprese quinoa salad ( we served it over a thin bagel and fried egg ), and frozen blueberry yogurt bites. All were great!
LOOKING FORWARD TO a client meeting with Athena Pelton next week! We worked together last year and she is honestly one of the most friendly, always excited, and genuine people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She lives near me and I cannot believe we haven’t met up yet. We’ll be talking biz and maybe enjoying some goodies! Plus her photography work is killer – I love seeing a client grow.
