Let’s get right to it. I am Currently…
Did you see Adjusted in Plain Sight? OMG!!! WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE! Aint no way my parents would have done something like that and I can't see any possibility of me and CDub ever behaving in such a way! WOW! If you haven't check it out, make sure you head over to Netflix.
I've also been binge-watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon. I always forget that I have Amazon to watch shows and movies! In fact, I was in the middle of watching Suits earlier this year and completely forgot!
I struggled through the first half of Becoming. Well, struggle is not the right word. It was so interesting..but so slow at the same time. I love the book, but I think I was just waiting to get to Barack! LOL. Now I'm in the midst of the campaign and I'm moving a lot faster. I think I'm going to be able to finish it this week.
But as per me, I'm also reading several other books at once. Including My Sister the Serial Killer. I saw this book I think in Oprah Mag one month and Essence another. And then I kept seeing it elsewhere. I knew I had to get it.
To see what else I'm reading, head over to my Goodreads profile and follow me there!
I don't know if this qualifies as making but..I'm doing a 365!
I've been secretly taking photos every day and uploading them to a private Insta Account. Just for me. I waited a whole month to see if I got through it before I told anyone about it!
It doesn't have any direction. The photos are bad and good and some are just basic iPhone snaps. But I've been in a photography rut. I sometimes feel like the only time I take photos is for work or for the gram. I wanted to get back to just taking random photos for me.
That I sent my husband on vacation. I sent Cdub to Vegas this week. He's the type of person that will rarely do something for himself on his own. He loves his family and loves us to death, but I recognize that he needs time alone even when he doesn't. So I sent him to Vegas. He's been trying to get there for about 3 years now, but something always comes up. He had a wonderful time and came back so relaxed and happy. I have to plan to send him somewhere else…maybe I'll come along this time.
All the travel! I've got a few fun travel events coming up this year, starting today! First up, I'm headed out to Texas TODAY for the We Wanderers Retreat. It's a photography retreat hosted by Courtney of Click It Up a Notch and Trisha from Eat Your Beets. I've been feeling in a creative rut lately. And since improving my photography this year is one of my main goals, I'm so excited to go.
Stay tuned for more trips this year where I'm taking the whole family. Can't wait to share!
Stressed and happy. Is that possible? I am doing it. I am doing what I set out to do last year. I have my own business. I get to set my own hours, I get to give Pookah and Cdub all the attention they need while still contributing to the bills. It really does feel like I'm living my best life sometimes.
Yes, I still have bad days. But the good ones outweigh the bad so much. Life is not perfect by any means. But it's damn good.
So that's all I'm currently up to this year so far!
How is your year going?
