You guysss… errr, I mean gals! It’s been a hot minute. I mean, for heaven’s sake, it’s May!
I am kicking myself for not having the Month 3 Florida Life recap up on the blog, or getting my monthly newsletter into your inbox – yet!. But, I have an excuse*.
How about we catch up over a cup of collagen coffee this morning? I wish you were here with me on my back deck, as it’s perfect weather and not the least bit humid… but I suppose a virtual coffee date will do.
[*excuse] If we were having coffee this morning, I’d tell you that I had been anticipating a mini blog makeover for the past six weeks or so. If you cruised over to the blog anytime in the past week, it may have looked unfamiliar in design. While I was hoping to have a new, fresh look to share at the start of the month, the design work didn’t result in the inspiring, updated, and relevant feel I was going for. Investing time and money into a project that you leaves back at square one is hard pill to swallow, but I’m doing my best to not get too hung up on it and go back to the drawing board. Unfortunately, the behind-the-scenes design stuff was putting up a mental block for me showing up here. New design or not, I want to continue showing up in this space…
If we were having coffee this morning, I’d tell you how excited I am to go back to Cali not once, but twice(!), in May and June for a couple of weddings. I am a bit apprehensive that once I’m there, I won’t want to get back on the plane to Florida. I’m more than a bit homesick.
If we were having coffee this morning, I’d tell you that I am doing a little Beautycounter Giveaway for May. Anyone who places an order by Sunday, May 13th (Mother’s Day) will be entered to win a Lip Gloss shade of their choice! I absolutely love the Poppy color — it’s my daily go-to!
If we were having coffee this morning, I’d tell you that job searching is exhausting. It is also more difficult when you’re not even sure what the heck you want to do with you life, career wise. Oh, late-twenties, you are something else.
If we were having coffee this morning, we might talk about the monumental changes that have happened in my life since last May… how it has been a full year since my engagement fell through… how I found myself in a new, unexpected and wonderful relationship, how I quit my full-time job, spent a week road-tripping across the country, and then how I moved my life(!) across the country to somewhere I had never been. How technically I am currently “jobless” and spending more solo time than ever before, and yet my once crippling anxiety is at an all time low. I am constantly beating myself up for not doing enough in this new chapter of life, but when I stop to think about it, living more comfortably in myself has significantly more weight and value than a job title and booming career at 28.
If we were having coffee this morning, I’d tell you that I am that crazy, worried new dog mom. I could probably write an entire post all about Koba. She brings me joy daily, and I honestly can’t imagine this season of life without her. Oh, and I also experience the worst mom guilt if I don’t take her on walk.
Your turn! If we were having coffee this morning, what would you tell me?
