Considering this week has been a bit of a blah week. Did you read my post on Tuesday? I am convinced I must be feeling the effects of Mercury Retrograde or something because everything has been a hassle the last few days. Because of this I thought what better time to do an inspiration, gratitude & surprises post, right? Taking stock of the little things always helps me remember to be grateful for this lovely, messy, exhausting & fabulous life. I am looking forward to a very mellow weekend. Tonight we are staying in…my absolute favorite thing to do on a friday night…probably because I am old now. Saturday I plan to continue my “yoga every damn day” challenge with a morning yoga class and at night we are going to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for a movie date night which happened to be one of the things on my summer to do list. We are going to pack a middle eastern picnic, grab a nice bottle of wine and curl up on a blanket in the grass. I could do without the movie we are seeing (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) but you can’t win them all, right? Sunday we have absolutely nothing planned other than a morning surf for Bri and a morning yoga class for me.
what inspired me this week?
my friend Rachel decided to cancel her Facebook account because she was tired of being a slave to it. I immediately thought the idea of canceling my facebook account sounded fabulous too! It gets a bit exhausting comparing yourself to others on a daily basis, you know? Not to mention it can be such a time sucker. Sadly, I’m not saying I was brave enough to cancel mine too but I still think it’s a great idea.
this quote…“Don’t worry about the how. That is up to the universe to determine. The universe lives in endless possibilities while our ego dwells in limited options. Which would you trust?”
what am I grateful for this week?
My husband…always my husband. Not only because he surprises me with flowers but because he’s my best friend and biggest support.
Taline…she knows why
A much-needed pep talk from my friend Melissa
A sense of humor
long morning walks with Frank
sushi dinners with my family
our blooming garden (all due to Brian and his green thumb)
what surprised me this week?
I realized I am turning 32 verrrry soon. How the heck is it almost July 8th?? It’s not only my birthday but it’s this little blogs bday! Happy almost 3rd birthday blog!
I also found my first grey hair this week. Yeah, that was a bad surprise.
