TGIF friends! This is not my current view, but oh how I wish it were! I’m in my office today, not on a beach in Honduras. It’s been a long & busy work week, without time for much else. On the bright side, we booked another cruise for October & this time our families are joining us! We’ll be exploring some of the same places, but also some new places. Tonight I’m off to celebrate a friend’s birthday with a fish fry, then spend a quiet rest of the weekend at home. I’m hoping to get some of the clutter straightened up, catch up on some blog work, start putting together a website that I’m designing (my first, eek!), & get caught up on some work for my day job. Have a great weekend!
My birthday is at the beginning of May & always falls right around the Kentucky Derby. I’ve had more than one Derby themed birthday party, including the most fabulous 30th I could have asked for, but it’s always been dream to actually get to spend a birthday weekend at Churchill Downs. Since this wasn’t my year, I lived vicariously through Grace’s amazing weekend at the races!

Ok, so I know that I’m a little behind the times on this one, but I just got my first set of PowerSheets from Lara Casey & I am OBSESSED! This little workbook (I got the six-month version) takes you through a deep-dive into your priorities & goals for the upcoming six-months. Then it helps you break down each goal into workable steps, based on either a month, week, or daily task. Each month has a page to track your progress on each task & you review your progress at the end of each month. Every three months, you review your goals, to be sure that they still align with where you are in life.
