the weekend + committing to... + happy fourth of july!
happy fourth of july to all my u.s. readers--and happy monday to everyone outside the states! how were your weekends? i hope they were delightful (and, for most of you, that they're continuing today).
and my weekend? it was pretty great. here're five lovely things that happened:
+ a quiet friday night in.
+ sushi with friends on saturday, followed by board games late into the night. (you guys, pass the pigs is amazing.)
+ fantastic brunch with mom, aunt and cousins, followed by a full day on the ringling museum campus, capped off with a seafood dinner at owen's fish camp, one of my favorite restaurants in town.
+ a couple of storms, complete with heavy rain, flashes of lightning and claps of thunder. love 'em.
+ some new-found assertiveness. hooray, me!
and five commitments for the week:
+ continue to focus on health. make smart choices, especially since i'll be eating out quite a bit this week.
+ make the most of my week off -- be productive, but relax, too.
+ help my mom enjoy our little trip north as much as possible. she's been so stressed lately; i want to make sure she has the best time.
+ keep up the aforementioned new-found assertiveness.
+ be open to possibilities of all kinds. i have a sneaking suspicion that there are a lot of them out there right now.
tonight i'm going to the beach to watch fireworks explode over the ocean and i couldn't be happier. how about you -- what are your plans for the fourth? and what are your goals for the week?
see you back here tomorrow!
