Why hello there, chickadees!
Guess what? I didn’t blog yesterday. Did you notice?
I spent Friday at my best friend’s wedding. I spent Saturday in the sun. Then I spent Sunday in the sun. We made pancakes. We drank coffee. We drank vodka sodas. We went hiking. We laid on the couch. We ate the best damn vegan meatball subs for lunch. Then we watched a movie.
And then I didn’t blog.
It felt balanced. It felt… amazing.
Lunch: hugh jass salad with mixed greens, arugula, carrots, tomatoes, red onion, green onion, leftover roasted peppers and sweet potatoes, dry roasted edamame, avocado, balsamic
Lately it has been a REAL struggle for me to find time on the weekends to devote to blogging. I’m constantly battling wanting/needing to devote my time to Alchemy, to my social life, to my boyfriend, to ME. Do I prep food for the week, work out, hang out with my friends, finish Alchemy stuff, or blog? I can’t do it all. I won’t do it all.
But don’t worry, I’m not going to waste this whole post blabbering about how difficult it is to find balance. You’ve heard it all before! But I want you to know that that’s where I’m at right now.
I’m heading off to Michigan tomorrow for my first ever blogger retreat and I can’t freaking wait. I think it’s perfect timing. I want, I need, to relax and re-fall-in-love with my blog. I need to be re-inspired. I need to be motivated to find time to cook and clean and write and photograph when it’s sunny out and all I want to do is live my life not behind a screen.
Dinner: Acre Thai Bowl with cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, tofu, coconut brown rice and bangkok peanut sauce plus some of the boy’s kale caesar
Dessert: sea salt and turbinado sugar dark chocolate covered almonds
