Welcome to a truly splendid week. No really. Over the weekend, while on our traditional Sunday morning coffee at Friars, the streets were lined with people enjoying the sunshine. Spring put on its best performance and it was a truly stunning start to my time off.
Today I write this from my home office, with the breeze flowing in, warm sunshine on my face. I have just finished painting the first coat on my kitchen and about to get into some homework. The husband is dropping home for lunch shortly too. I feel relaxed, inspired and totally happy. This is the beginning of a 2 week rejuvenation and doing things I love. I have cut back to 3 day working weeks during this time.
Never before has time been taken off just for ME, with nowhere to be and no manic schedule of things to do.
This is a snippet of my time off so far...
It is no secret I love good coffee. Also, I barely find time to read a book, which lead to a new tradition. Every Friday morning, I leave a little earlier and head to my local fav coffee shops and just read. When I leave I feel clear, focused and ready for the day ahead.
Making me smile this week: making REAL progress on hoe renovations / meeting with a gorgeous bride-to-be planning her special day / Malibu and Coke / feeling the warm breeze and sunshine / The Lane's editorial shoots / Fenton and Fenton / making time to see friends more often.
What is making you excited this week? have you ever planned time off for just YOU? What did you get up to?
