Back to the one-monthers…and seriously lacking on the amount of instragram photos I had to share. Progress, not perfection.
Happy March everyone! I first off want to share a little something that I was able to work on to start this month off right. A few days late…but, see that last sentence above. Head on over to the Card Store blog to celebrate March with me.
Soooo February. It was a pretty intense and awesome month. I went on my first week-long vacation that wasn’t over a regularly scheduled holiday. Boy is the amount of work you have to prep for different when you do this! The weeks surrounding my vacation were packed to the max, and I spent every waking minute making sure that I wasn’t letting anything slide. Everything went smoothly, but I need to remember to prep a little better when this happens again.
That vacation I’m talking about? I went to Hilton Head for a health retreat with my mom. My dad was also on the island, but he was doing his own thing while I was there. I did sneak away to enjoy a night of fresh-caught oysters, and ooooh man was it worth it. Since Christmas, I’ve been trying to live a healthier lifestyle and get back to feeling good again. I went through so many emotional ups and downs over the past couple years, and I have just been ready to stop making excuses, and learn how to live a balanced life. This doesn’t mean I’m giving up everything, hitting the gym every day, and making ‘no excuses’ to having any fun. It just means that I’ve taken the time to make health and wellness a priority, and that I’m making way more ‘good’ decisions than I am ‘bad’ ones. I still have taco bell after dance practice on Fridays, and I’ll have a beer before volleyball on Wednesdays. I just don’t go crazy, and I’m eating tons of veggies and healthy foods that actually make me feel great. I’ve still got a long way to go, but I’m so happy with how I’ve been progressing while still living a happy moderate life. Oh, and I’ve lost 11 pounds!! This vacation was so needed in the midst of this winter, and I have a feeling I’ll be trying to head back next year just to keep on track. Last year I spent the majority of February having 1PM sadness in my office. I’m happy to report that this year I’ve had a relatively cry-free February.
Other than the vacation, we launched two new brand identities through Pinegate Road. We’re in the midst of web design for both — one to launch at the end of the month, and another to launch in May. Also! Finalizations have been made on this space right here, and Pinegate Road will be getting a new look within a month. Crossing my fingers I don’t decide to change things up again last minute and that all pulls through.
Hope you’re having a great start to your month, and as always you can follow along with my month, day by day, here.
