“Do it for the blog!”

So far this phrase has not done me wrong. “Do it for the blog!” has talked me into learning new skills, being braver, being healthier, relaxing more…the possibilities are clearly endless! But today, I realized just how quickly that phrase could get out of hand. When I started down the path of making little changes…

Three Day Weekend= Automatic Routine Maintenance

If you (are lucky enough to) work a Monday-Friday, 9-5 job like I do, a three day weekend is sort of like the universe forcing some routine maintenance on you. It’s an automatic step outside your regular schedule. Which is awesome! Technically I stayed in my normal routine of heading up to my parents’ house…
