Favourites Friday No.87

There’s such a relief when I get around to writing my Favourites Friday post. It means the weekend is just around the corner and I get to focus on all the good things. And this week it means putting work behind for a few days.

This week has been crazy busy with work stuff. As the onboarding manager for my company, when a new person comes it means adding a whole new set of responsibilities on top of an already busy week. And to say it wasn’t crazy having the new person come on my busiest day of the week was difficult is an understatement. But I am excited to have another girl on our team!

Some weeks are harder than others. Some weeks are better than others. And the way we let events affect us is all about our attitude toward the week.

This week I struggled with being tired and lethargic, but instead of letting it ruin my week, I took a different approach. I forced myself to look at the end of the week as a reward, and if I make it to the end of the week and finish all my work, then I get a special treat. And it made my week a lot better.

As I look forward to my reward (the weekend!) let’s take a step back to look at the things I loved this week.Read More

And to prepare for this week, Portland has been especially hot, especially last weekend. My apartment reached record highs and it’s taken days to get all the hot air out. That’s why this week’s favourites are focused on everything I have used to stay cool for the summer.Read More

Favourites Friday No.78

After several weeks of busy schedules, and weekends of traveling, I am finally done with a long stretch of zero relaxing. All I plan to do for the next two days is sit on my sofa, drink iced tea, and enjoy life.

This past week was quite a roller coaster. Starting out with a beautiful tour of Oregon wine country and ending with scheduling more meetings than I thought possible, I am always thankful for getting through.Read More

Favourites Friday No.77

Sometimes life throws you incredibly large lemons. And you make a large batch of lemonade. It could be sour, it could be sweet, but it’s whatever you make it.

This week I took on a lot more than I normally do. At times it was stressful, at time very rewarding, but at the end of the day it was what I made it. This experience reminds me that every little step is worth it, even when I don’t see immediate results. I spent much of this week either glued to a computer or on my feet, and while I’ve gotten to this weekend feeling tired, I know it’s all worth it.Read More
