1 thing I want to remember from the last week:
Sometimes, it’s ok to take a break! I was feeling burnt out on all things blogging, so I took 3 days off from it, and it felt great. I think that sometimes, as bloggers, we feel like the world will end if we don’t get our post published, and it’s nice to be reminded that the world won’t actually end. In fact, most people probably won’t even notice.

Tell me about the highlight of your week!

      I do really like it so far! Although I keep reading it before bed, and then it creeps me out, especially if TJ falls asleep before me, haha. You’ll have to let me know when you read it!

    You had me at 90’s pop music! Yes, please!

    I am LOVING that mojito nail polish color! How fun!

    Hope you have a great week!

      Haha, I just can’t get enough of the 90s pop station. I hate to sound like an old fogey, but they don’t make music like they used to! I’m loving all the fun nail colors for spring and summer too. Bring on all the bright colors, please! Hope you have a great week too!
