Short work weeks are the best!
James and I both worked on Monday but so appreciated having a day off. It was a little gift. Although the weather was rainy and anything July like, we enjoyed a marathon day of movie watching and simply being on the couch. Sadly, the weather has been rainy all week but we are hoping for warm and sunny this weekend to do some planned hiking.
Hoping your weekend includes fun plans and warm weather.
Here are a few of my favorites of the week.
I found this quote and shared it on Instagram this week. Rarely do we listen to what our body needs. We often go too long without eating. Neglect our sleep. Slow down this weekend and ask yourself what you are needing.
NOT TO MISS READS
This is an older post from Sarah at Yes and Yes but something I think we all need to read. Self care has become the hip thing to talk about and there are times I believe there is a certain level of competition about it. (I’ve actually not written about it in awhile because of the glut of what is out there.) The important aspect of self care is that it is for you. It doesn’t have to be posted on your Instagram or written about. Self care looks different for each of us. What is important is that you practice it.
I love this post from my friend Emily at Authentically Emmie. Emily shares a recent experience of sitting at a stoplight and having two men roll down their car window and yell at her “You’re fat.” “You’re fat.” This post is moving on so many levels and I encourage everyone to read it. I continue to struggle with how we as humans can be so cruel to each other. With sharing these experiences, I hope we can make changes.
It would be so nice if we could all get to the place and let things go. I love this from Lindsay at Bourbon and Lipstick. Are there things that you no longer care about that you would tell your younger self to let go of?
Have you heard that Target will be eliminating the Mossimo and Merona lines? They will be launching over 12 new lines throughout the store and I am excited to see what is coming.
What You Missed From Me
Here’s to a great weekend!!
