Happiest of happy Fridays, friends! This first week of school with kiddos has got me feeling a little bit like a crazy person, so I am beyond grateful the weekend is in sight! I’m sharing a few ways I plan to relax and take care of myself this weekend, while also fitting in a few fun things I plan to do over the next couple of days.

Wonderful Weekend

Happy Friday, lovely people! I don’t know about you, but recently I’ve been feeling the effects of the busyness of summer. Life has felt go, go, go as I’ve been trying to fit in ALL the things during these fleeting sunny weeks. So this weekend I have big plans to rest, relax, and reset, just like my little crab friend here. Of course, that doesn’t mean trips to the breweries or eating delicious food can’t be included! I’m sharing more of this weekend’s plans below.

This weekend, I am looking forward to…

Redefining my Relationship with Rest

Redefining my Relationship with Rest

We live in a culture that glamorizes stress and the state of being busy, and by no means am I an exception to falling victim to this glamorization. I’ve spent years being busy and when others ask how things are going, I can’t remember a time in which, “Busy,” wasn’t my automatic response. This state of busyness and rushed pace of living has become my normal state of being. And while it looks impressive from the outside, I’m always the first to lose, as it requires me to compromise- whether in self-care, relationships, or the energy I’m able to put forth to any one endeavor.
