Forging ahead.

It rang off to a promising start.  A Friday evening with my [shopping] partner-in-crime (aka- Hailey)... shopping for not one but TWO upcoming birthday parties that she was to attend the following day... brand new pajamas... fun presents- those perfect presents that you secretly wish you could keep... All the while, the boys were back at home conjuring up a quintessential kick-off-to-the-weekend dinner~ pizzzza. Homemade pizza.  Pizza, wine, Family Ties.  Perfection.

The rest was sort of a blur.  

Too many tears.  Too many "come to jesus" talks.  Too many to-do's.  And too freakin' HOT. (I realize I just said that it wasn't "so bad after all."  Well, it got hotter.  And it is "so bad after all.")

After a weekend I'd pretty much chalk up as chaotic, I'm really hoping this little gem of wisdom rings true in the coming week.

Scratch that.  I'm willing this to come true in the coming week.  

First up:  a coffee date with a friend from high school this morning.  Not just any friend.  A friend that I haven't seen in 18 years!  Not to place too much into a coffee date or anything, but I've got a feeling this is JUST what I need to get out of this bubble I've "found" myself in as of late... to work my way into a new direction- a slightly (all I ask) less chaotic direction.  Yes, change is in the air.  I can feel it.

    1. It really was. It was so nice to connect with a kindred spirit~ a moment of peace to get the week started (and back) on the right track.

      And then to jump right into full-force family mode yesterday and today…

      Now playing a little online catch-up.

      Balance. Right? :)

      xoxo

  5. Love that change is in the air. And it's so funny isn't it? It can come during a coffee with an old friend...a way to turn that corner. I am that very lazy Mum who now gives cash as a birthday gift (I know it's kinda crass but I ask the parent first) Kids love it and the gift never gets wasted.
