Friday! Technically we could say it’s “Thursday” depending on how you see things. And hey, it’s June! The best month of the year, it’s summer, and we can do what we want! Days have no names and everything just seems to flow into each other. I must say, it felt oddly beautiful, freeing, but also weird to not post on a Monday this week. To totally disconnect over the long weekend. I hadn’t done that since Christmas :O Even though it was just one day, it left me feeling like I could have gone the rest of the week without posting. It caused me to lose the autopilot “post, promote, repeat” mentality. I think it gave me some perspective on how robotic and a chore my business can become. There will be a little more awareness to how I, myself, feel. When you work for yourself, you don’t get “days off” unless you choose to do so and feel okay letting go a bit.
(***Update: This is currently the situation on Facebook..again..no lies***)
(My next sentence couldn’t be more true, as you’ll read below.)
Spending time with my family and experiencing life is so much more important and the free time this summer is going to go by way to quick, so I’m going to embrace it! Are you with me? If you find yourself sitting in a car on the way to the beach or need a little nighttime reading, here’s this week’s Friday Finisher for you! Easy reading and browsing that’s not demanding or a chore! Have a beautiful weekend in every way and go outside and soak up this CRAZY heat!
Wednesday: Dark Chocolate Walnut Doughnuts

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ Last weekend was lovely, this week ended up being a bit crummy at the end, but I have high hopes for a good weekend…but you know how I always say my birthday ends up being super bad…but that’s Mondays so…fingers crossed. This weekend I will be totally unplugging (except maybe a post or 2 on Instagram) otherwise, I’ll see you 6/6!
So tell me:
+ What’s the longest you’ve gone “unplugged”? It’s hard to do that when your job is…virtual. I’ve never “fully” been unplugged.
