THE WEEK

How has your week been? It was cool and rainy all day in Portland but as I write this, the sun is coming out and I’m feeling a sense of calm after spending the morning doing some serious cleaning and crossing a few important things off my list.

Overall, this week has felt uneventful (except for that cliffside hotel on the Amalfi Coast Gala and I just booked for a trip later in the summer…haha) and I’ll take it! No news is good news, right? After a few solid days of Rocky not feeling well last week, it really put everything back into perspective for me. Those scares, though not fun to go through, really remind you of what matters most and get your priorities in check.

Rocky is now doing much, much better and I am so relieved. Chubs is doing great, too. Have I mentioned that his new favorite food is sweet potatoes?!

Anyway, things are good. Busier than I’d like on the work front, but awesome stuff is happening and progress is being made on both client work and digital courses. Gotta be thankful for that and just keep showing up every day.

I hope you have some good times ahead, as well.

Let’s get the weekend started….and I’ll see you back here on Monday with some fresh content! xo
