Aaahhh, what a week...I'm spent! Life has been busy, challenging me and keeping me humble, which (in the grand scheme of things) is just fine, because it keeps me aware and in the present. I'm tired, yes, but I'm also feeling like I have totally earned my weekend. And so, on this Thursday night, after an especially trying week, I'm making a conscious decision to totally MILK the next three days I have to myself; I'm going to decompress, refocus and rejuvenate my body and mind so that I can close the weekend a better person than I am today...because Lord knows I've been pushed to my absolute limit this week.
We've a fun weekend ahead of us; we have friends in town visiting from the mainland, so our To-Do list reads more like a vacation itinerary than a weekend "Honey-Do" List. Beach BBQ's, stand-up paddling (SUP), kite-surfing and (mandatory) solo trips to Starbucks are among the Top 5 planned-activities for the weekend...and yeah, I'm cool with that. Totally.
02: I canceled my Birchbox subscription after two months.
Not impressed (email me if you have questions and want feedback!).
03: I settle in, wanting to read before bed, and The Queen decides she needs to sit 5 inches from my face. #spacehog
04: Jellyfish Lake. I'm adding it to my Bucket List (much to Phil's dismay).
05: So thankful for restorative sunsets after a suckfest day at work.
06: She makes it very difficult for me to get out of bed in the mornings. #spacehog
07: Can you see the faint hint of a double rainbow? Blessed.
08: Untouched sand is so beautiful. Thankful for dune restoration on our beaches!
09: Romans 12:2, #shereadstruth.
10: Aloha Friday sunset.
11: Willie K at Wailuku First Friday!
12: Late-night espresso with The Hubs; I can't think of a better way to spend my Friday night.
13: Breakthrough day on the kite. Oh, yeah. It's on!
14: #shereadstruth. I can't even begin to articulate what this bible study has done for me...for my heart.
15: Waking to sunshine and blue skies. Amen.
Happy Aloha Friday!
