So much has happened this week I don’t even know where to begin. I’m thrilled to have the “day off” today (I never actually have a day off) to spend in the kitchen for the first time in weeks. Working for yourself often means having to do all the boring busywork, and sometimes that prevents you from doing what you actually want to do. It all evens out in the end, but I sure have been missing my creative days lately! Let’s start off with some gratitude and move on to a day of fun!
1. The photo above was taken while running last weekend’s Fit Foodie 5k course. I had such a wonderful time at the weekend’s events, and the view from that course could not be beat. I’m so grateful not only to live in this beautiful city that is not covered by snow right now, but to be a part of such a wonderful community both online and offline that puts on awesome events like this one.
2. Speaking of awesome events. Creative Connection was this week, and it was beyond epic! We put together a panel of women entrepreneurs to share their personal stories with our group, and the dynamic of the 3 turned out to be so magical. Last night I was beaming with pride for being a part of such a special event. It was our largest turn out to date, and let me tell you how great it feels to be connecting so many creative women.
3. I took a quilting class this week that got me so excited and inspired for some new projects. Art lives within me, and I love finding new ways to express my creativity. For anyone who is feeling stuck in a rut, go out and take a random class and learn something new. There is no better way to spice up life than to try something you’ve never done before. Even if you wind up hating it, at least you will have learned something about yourself.
Ok, I am feeing so uplifted right now I just need to wrap this up and get a jump on my cooking. I hope you all will take a few moments for gratitude today. Have a wonderful weekend!
