Last week and a big something else
Thank you for the amazing love and support you sent my way after last week's post. When I reflect upon how long I've been blogging and navigating the social media landscape, I can't help but think back to how things used to be. A lot has changed in the blogging game, and I intend to write about that soon. For now, I'm thankful and encouraged, but most importantly I am back.
Last week was a killer. I was in Montreal (I can't wait to share more when I am able), K was in Austin, and the kids were home adjusting to the first full school week without us. I landed Tuesday morning and headed to the office. Oh, I do this now - buy some amazing 3D paper art here. Lots to tell and if you've been here since 2008 (wow - thank you!), it's been quite the transition from stay at home parenthood but I love it, and I am all in.
I ran home to kiss the kids and make sure Preston made it to soccer practice and then ran off to Harvard Square to meet a friend for Gretchen Rubin's book signing. I'm the proud owner of a signed copy of the Four Tendencies and can't wait to let you know how it is.
Wednesday and Thursday were jam-packed with meetings and solo parenting responsibilities. K got home around 2 am as I battled a weird case of stress-induced insomnia. Thankfully it's the first time I've experienced it, but it was irritating and the last thing I needed after a crazy week. I decided to work from home on Friday since I could barely move my body and I'm glad I did. I got a lot done and felt on top of things for the first time in weeks since before Canada I was semi-vacationing in Miami.
Saturday and Sunday were spent running to and fro from gymnastics to soccer to dance and to playdates. I'm slowly getting back on track and am eagerly anticipating autumn's arrival. It's hot AF today in Boston, and I regret not planning a trip to the beach. It's likely for the best as I'm spending the rest of the day gearing up for another wild week of school, work, sports, activities, and workouts.
Oh, and there's something else. A big something else.
I'm preparing to launch The Daily Tea. After becoming disillusioned with the monotony and sameness of the ten or so email newsletters I subscribe to, I decided to become the change I wished to see in the world and created my own. I'm throwing it back to the "you got mail" era and building something that will make you excited to refresh your inbox every day.
I'm crazy excited to share more in the coming weeks. For now, you're welcome to visit the landing page and opt-in to what is guaranteed to become an inbox game changer.
What big things are you working on this week?
