With a crazy work/life balancing act, side business, love of food and fall colors, I am reorganizing not just my website, but how I choose to spend my time. Here are the ways I am looking at it right about now, five areas, can you relate (I would love to know how this compares to your list):
5. Me time
Yes, they all overlap, and I love it. I love that I can work from home, play homemaker in between work calls, switch the laundry, empty the dishwasher, jump into deadlines, take a lunch break on the terrace, greet the kids when they get home from school, and jump back into deadlines as needed. I love the variety, the "ingredients" that keep things interesting, through all the layers and the hiccups. I learned long ago it is life's simple things that make it all worth it--just the fact that we can all be home and have family dinners at the table together 2-3 days a week is huge. I should also mention chauffer, as we take the kids to soccer or dance and juggle what ends up on the dinner table and when. We count our blessings often in this house. Not only am I grateful for my family, I'm grateful that I have a laptop to share my love of words, makeup, beauty, and food all in one place, #goals. I channel my inner Pioneer Woman and plan to enjoy every step, every bite, and every swipe that makes me glitter, in every sense of the word. The beauty of it is, that while I sit here and type, not only am I getting me time, but I'm hanging with my hubby on the couch, wishing we started a fire in the fireplace right about now, and taking comfort in the fact that we are all home, safe, and cozy at this very moment.
So thank you for checking in again! Take a look around the site and holler if you have any questions or suggestions because this is not only for me, but I want this to be a landing page for you too. If my confidence building journey can help just one person, that would make my day. Likewise, with any recipes or foodie tips, I am happy to share what I can, but also want to hear from you, what tips would you share? Drop it in the comments!! Who knows, maybe I will ask you to add a guest-spot blog post!?!??! You in???
