Whoa. I am epically tired on this Friday morning after several interrupted sleep nights, and several very early mornings in a row. Someone pass the coffee PLEASE! The whirlwind that is my life continues to roll on, which is Great, but leaves me in a I’ll-sleep-when-I’m-dead place. Here’s some things I’m grateful for this week (spoiler: sleep is not one of them)
1. I finally got to spend last weekend with my bestie Jenny. I feel like we were able to explore a lot, eat a lot, and catch up in person which is the most important thing of all. We’ve both had a pretty stressful year so far, and being together was an absolute necessity for us both. There’s just something about being with your best friend that helps make everything seem ok in the universe, at least for a minute. Next time Frank can come too, and he and The Hubs will be permitted on our adventures. One thing I realized while she was here is that there is literally limitless things to explore in the Bay Area. It was very hard to narrow down the field for one weekend. I hope to continue to entice visitors with all the fun stuff for years to come.
2. Oakland/Berkeley might just be the most Instagrammable places ever! I used to leave my phone at home when I walked the dogs in San Diego because I liked the solitude, and the ability to disconnect. Every time I do that here, I regret it because I am constantly seeing things that are incredibly unique, eye catching, or inspiring. I probably snap 10 pics a day of things that draw me in. Definitely check out my personal Instagram Account to catch all the action.
3. The reason I’ve been up so early this week is because I’m finally able to commit to myself to working out regularly once again. I joined Class Pass and have been trying a new pilates/yoga/spin studio each morning. Some have been better than others, but all are sufficient for me so far. I know that this extreme fatigue is only temporary while my body adjusts to the new schedule. I’m looking forward to the days when I can bounce up at 5am, work out, and not feel like a zombie at 10am.
I’m so grateful for my first life-as-usual week. The Hubs and I are even going out for sushi tonight, which is how we spent most Friday’s in the past. There’s more travel and chaos in my future, so I’m just going to relish this routine while it lasts.
