around these parts…

16 Jan


the above picture has nothing to do with this post- I was just compelled to share the cuteness with you all.

I could not be happier that the weekend is almost here. It’s been a bit of a blah week for me. Not for any specific head space has just been BLAH. I think I might finally be coming down from the high of the wedding. I didn’t really have a chance to mourn that it was over because we went straight into the excitement of the holidays. It was a joyful few months and I don’t think I was prepared for it all to end. I’m not saying that life can’t be joyful after the wedding…I’m just saying I’m a little sad it’s over.

Despite my blah mood, I was able to make some progress with a few of my goals this week.

I worked on a travel essay about our trip to Nepal, which I plan on submitting as soon as I finish it (hopefully this weekend).

Brian and I finally settled on our honeymoon destinations- Bali and Vietnam here we come. I just LOVE having a trip to look forward to.

I have my very first date with my little sister, Briana set up for this Sunday. I still have no idea what to do with her…must come up with something…soon.

We’ve also made a lot of progress with our home this week- we picked paint colors, met with a furniture builder and found two killer pieces at the rose bowl flea market this last weekend- a fabulous new turkish rug and mirror for the entryway. The mirror is currently white but I plan to paint it coral this weekend!

Other than the thrilling activity of painting the mirror coral this weekend…I plan to do a bit of cooking (paleo cauliflower soup), reading (finding your own north star), writing (travel essay), organizing (the clutter that has developed in our cabinets is crazy…I was almost killed by a falling juicer the other day) and taking a few walks on the beach with my pup and husband.

Hoping that I will have a little more umpf next week!

On another note…did you see the new header on the blog?! I love it. I just die over Frank’s regal pose. Thank you, One Part Gypsy for creating such a fabulous header for me.

    Love the new header! That’s one cute pup. I love the book ‘Finding your own North star’. The follow up is ‘Steering by starlight’ and it’s amazing. Happy reading!

    It’s pretty natural for a person to feel a let-down, or “plateau effect”, after a particularly exciting event or series of events. The next phases of your life will prove just as special as
    what has recently transpired.

    I know what you mean about being a bit melancholy after your wedding. I felt the same way. My husband thought I was so weird (and ungrateful) but that wasn’t it at all; the hype around your wedding is so exciting and the anticipation builds and builds until it peaks on your wedding day and then it’s hard to come back to reality and get used to a new routine (which doesn’t include wedding planning.) That said, you have your honeymoon to look forward to! 🙂 Whoo-hoo!
