Once in college, my friend Val and I ran into an older woman at a college bar and she gave us some unsoliticed advice. “Its the week-end, not the work-end! She screamed as she stumbled towards the bathroom sink. Looking back, this lady was wiser than I realized.
This weekend, I took a break from everything and am so happy I did. Too often I lose myself in the to-do lists of life and forget how important is to take time to relax.
The weekend was filled with:
-A phone consultation with our wedding caterer (she is awesome!), stumbling upon a stationery store and getting very excited that our wedding plans are falling into place
-A leasiurely brunch at Hot Chocolate (I have wanted to go there for a very long time, post to follow!)
-A gift of new running shorts at Lululemon Bucktown (revew to follow once I run in them!)
-A trip to the Ikea-eque Lincoln Park Whole Foods to stock up for the week
-A relaxing Sunday night of wine and cooking up some Cod, Kale and rice for dinner. For dessert was Bethenny’s Faux Cheesecake
-Also, a lot of sleeping and a great new book (review to follow soon)
What didn’t I do? Run. But, in all honestly I needed a break from life. So much is going on but I was overwhelmed to the point of forgetting to enjoy it all. This weekend was a great reminder of what a great point in my life I am in. Tomorrow, I will get right back on track recharged and remotivated.
Here’s to a new week!
