A Week at a Time | 11/4/16

When life gets crazy or exciting or overwhelming or things change, I write. It’s always been this way for me.

Reading and drinking coffee and squeezing in a run. Just taking a moment to look back at what the week has brought me before plunging into that all so wonderful weekend!

After babysitting two fun (read: energetic & full of questions) little girls the entire weekend, I jumped right into the work week, and let me tell you, I do not recommend making that a regular thing.
