This Weekend

This week I have tried to value relationships. So much of life has been wrapped up in working and conquering another task, deadline, or goal that sometimes I forget the value in our relationships. The importance of cooking with friends, drinking wine and talking about life not work, and really enjoying a moment. I am working hard at this and finding that balance has been difficult but I know I will be happy with this effort the older I get.

It has been a busy week and has gone fast, which is good and bad, but every week I learn something new about running a business and being a blogger. I dream up some new column, design something I wasn’t sure I could do, or even simply figure out how to time more exercise into my routine. I love what I do and every day I am more passionate about it, which makes me wonder if I ever will hit a limit of how much I love it, do you think that is possible? I am not sure and maybe what keeps me falling in love are the ways it is always changing and moving. There is always another challenge and I need that.

We have friends in town tonight and tomorrow and though I have a pile of work I am trying hard to limit my time here so I can have more of it out there. I plan on making pancakes with blueberries. I want to be in my garden with dirty feet watching my tomato plants grow big and tall. My friends and I are going to go wine tasting and take in some sights (I always love when people come to visit so I can do the tourist things). Then finally I am going to do my best to enjoy the littlest things in the present moment. That is my weekend though it will involve some work, which I can handle I think.

What do you have planned? How do you balance life and work?

Cheers my dear friends!

  1. You are right! It’s so hard to focus on the important relationships when there is a lot on your plate and the time seems to fly by! This makes me want to make some solid frind plans!

  2. I love how real this post was. Your site and posts are always so inspiring, hhank you for that! I realized that my husband and I have not had much quality time together lately – he works so much and we are both busy. So I’m going to make reservations for a dinner date tonight, just the two of us! Enjoy your weekend!
