Happy weekend, friends! I don’t have much planned which is really nice. Yesterday I had my sister and my cousin over for patio wine + cheese, and today I am just planning to do a bit of wandering and maybe see a movie. Those are the best weekends, in my opinion. I’ve been making a verrrrry conscious effort to unplug and avoid my phone as much as I can. As a blogger, so much of my job relies on my phone, but this week I focused on being more mindful about it – checking Instagram only when it was time to post, not looking at email unless I was at my desk, and only checking + responding to texts a few times a day. It felt really good. I am going to write more about it but I feel like I put some healthy habits in place this week and that makes me happy. Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great! Lots and lots of links for you this week! xo
