Is it me just me or have your weekends been busier lately? My weekends typically are fairly busy and I usually have at least some down time between Friday and Sunday but these days it feels like I’m just running through the days and finally getting to pause a bit when Monday rolls around. I promised myself one day I’m going to just clear my schedule and park my butt on the couch and read an entire book in a day. I miss those luxuries…
Anyway, here’s a little recap of my weekend…
One of my bffs, Maye, is expecting her 2nd child (a boy!!) next month so we threw her a baby shower on Saturday. It was a small, intimate affair and felt nice to hang out with my girlfriends and their kids. And of course eat all day long. Thankfully my friend Ellen made a lot of gluten-free dishes and everything was soooo good. She made the Brazilian cheese bread, mango sticky rice, and mochi cakes with sweet red bean – all gluten-free if you can believe it. Thank goodness for leftovers because I was snacking on them the next day.
Sunday was filled with meetings and errands and editing. I also stumbled on this quote and it really hit home for me. Sometimes things don’t work out the way you initially wanted it to but it doesn’t mean something better isn’t waiting for you. Something better is almost always waiting for you. One thing I believe whole heartedly is that we need to get rid of the bad and negative to make room for the good and positive. Positive thinking is so powerful and I’ve only realized this in recent years. But it’s so true and life changing. Seriously. This weekend reminded me of this and the quote above just emphasized it even more. I’m grateful for it.
Oops, sorry I got all deep and serious there. Too heavy for a Monday morning. haha Anyway, I hope your weekend was a wonderful one and I hope you have a happy, lovely week. I’m trying to get as much work done as possible this week before I leave for our road trip. Yay! XO
