This week was needed. No doctors appointments, tests, or exams. After that endoscopy, 2 days of colonoscopy prep, then the colonoscopy, I was done. However, only for this week; as I wanted for "birthday week". I did absolutely nothing on my birthday (it was pouring rain, too), but I plan on doing something special this weekend (fingers crossed). I also have plans of working on some other content to start posting here on the blog besides recipes. So even though this summer has been a bit sidelined by illness so far, I'm hoping to keep moving forward and not let it slow me down too much any more!
As we jump into the weekend (I see sunshine and our first 90 degree days coming here in NJ!), let's start to get our summer vibes flowing and enjoy the possibility of the season and next few months of freedom! Cheers!
