what are you doing this weekend?

happy friday, friends! how were your weeks?

mine was busy. after a fantastic monday off, i jumped right into an events-filled work week that's going to continue straight through tomorrow night. not that i'm complaining; everything i've been to has been fun, and tomorrow night's soiree -- which is cocktails, dinner and an auction -- will, i'm sure, be no exception. (plus, it'll give me a chance to wear my favorite hot-pink shoes. awesome.)

and aside from busy, things are good right now. in fact, i feel so content that i'm holding my breath a little as i type that, afraid that putting the words out there is going to jinx everything. (a silly but real fear, isn't it? say you've felt it before, too.) that's not to say that everything's perfect -- it's not. just that i'm at a point in my life where i feel safe and and balanced and happy with the way a lot of things are going.

and of course, the absolutely gorgeous fall weather we've been having this week contributes to that, too. there've been moments when a breeze has blown in through the open lanai or i've stepped outside my office and the air has felt so amazing that my heart swells and i feel so much i can't even describe it. sarasota is always beautiful, but especially so at this time of year, and that beauty -- coupled with the good feelings already swirling around inside of me -- makes for a very full heart.

so this weekend, before and after my event, i'm going to try to take advantage of the weather in every way i can. i'm also going to try to read a little, spend time with friends, clean the house, plan next week's meals and get organized for a trip out of town the following week. and i'm looking forward to all of it.

how about you? what are your plans? let me know, and i'll see you back here on monday!

the photo above is from the dairy queen pumpkin pie blizzard ice cream date i had with my friend steph last night -- so fun catching up over pumpkiny goodness.


  1. that's wonderful that things are so good for you right now. we all need those life breaks, lol.

    things are good for me too, if the usual on-and-off frustration of lack of time.

    no plans this weekend. more art perhaps....

  2. mmmm....dairy queen. love them. :)

    i hope you have a great weekend, megs. xoxo

  3. Pumpkin pie icecream?! I had pumpkin pie with gingerbread icecream a few weeks ago and thought that was the best thing ever, but I'm pretty sure this would be. Yum. Wish we had Dairy Queen in Australia.
