Friday Morning

Is it just me or was it an insane work week? With meetings left and right and exciting new things in the future, this girl is needs to chill out. What are you plans for the weekend? I'm heading a little southeast to see what this hot air balloon event is all about, rearranging my bedroom a little and going on an all girls hike! Hope your weekend was a little tamer than mine and have an excellent weekend everyone :)

Weekend Wrap Up...

Have you done a technology detox lately? This past weekend my guy and I drove to his grandparents fiftieth wedding anniversary where I met tons of family members and hung out, without my phone in hand. It was a celebration of love, life and family. I was slightly nervous, I hadn't been a room with nearly seventy strangers in a long time but I was welcomed with hugs and kisses and when I finally got home last night, I realized what a beautiful and reassuring experience the whole weekend was. Our world and tv screens are so inundated with hate and violence,  that you forget there are so many good people in the world. I was surrounded by this huge multi-cultured family and there was not one moment that was not filled with love. In fact most of the family I met were some of the most compassionate and wonderful people I have ever met and it was exactly what I needed. I wasn't worried or constantly checking what was going on elsewhere, I was 100% in the moment. And even if I was nervous about meeting the boyfriend's family (and extended family) within minutes I felt apart of the family. Time away from my phone, time spent laughing and meeting new people, it was desperately needed and a practice I need to adopt more of. How do you detox?

Friday Morning

Let's skip the fact I nearly yelled at the parents in my story time this week for letting them take complete advantage of me. I am a librarian, not your babysitter. This generation of moms is seriously the worst. If you're going to be a mother, can you be actually be a mom! Now that my mini rant is over, my weekend is booked solid. Between family commitments and tuning in for the premiere of the highly anticipated Lore television show on Amazon, I'll catch you all next week.
