life lately

Life lately has been CRAZY. I’d sum it up perfectly with the manifesto –

W O R K   H A R D . P L A Y   H A R D .

I haven’t blogged in a month (since our trip to Philly), so here’s a little peek into my life as of late.

[traveled for this || great meetings in durham with my burt’s bees team]

[planned this (with some other party people!) || clorox spring fling at the holler]


[ate this || crawfish boil, round 1 + 2]

[loved this || two wonderful easter celebrations with the best family]

[enjoyed this || a night out with the girls to see Waitress at the WAC – which we LOVED!]

[soaking in this || the most beautiful spring weather]

[traveled (again) for this || more great meetings in SF with my SMG team
#foresightwarriors]

Busy month, huh? Philly > Durham > SF … and things don’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.
But you know what I’ve been thinking lately – let’s be THANKFUL for being busy with all good things, and enjoy the little moments of joy and relaxation with my favorite people while I can. ❤
