It’s Tuesday but I’m going to be confused all week because it feels so very Monday. But how cute is my cake that I made for Will’s birthday? Of all the people that live in my house he is the only one that truly appreciates my baking. He also loves sprinkles as much as I do. So he gets a cake covered in them. Happy Monday/Tuesday everybody!
Today in my stories I shared some things and people that made 2019 really awesome for me business-wise. Until I took a hard look at my year, I didn't think that I had that great of a year. But after really taking stock, I realized that I actually had a GREAT year. We moved COUNTRIES and lived to tell about it, took a financially dormant blog and made it profitable, really worked hard on and am proud of where I took my photography skills, and have a lot of great things to look forward to in 2020. Did I hit every goal that I set in 2019? No? Am I losing sleep over it? HELL NO. Small wins are still wins. We don't give them enough credit. I did a lot of hard things this year. My personal life was a shit show. Therapy helped a lot. Taking really good care of myself. Eating better. As much as I hate to admit this one - exercising was a big part of my success. It helped me sort out my brain and be more creative. I still hate it every single time I'm getting into my car, but I never regret going. Here's to small wins and big wins and goals that you reach and to goals that you don't.
Slow Saturday mornings with no where to be and nothing to do are pretty rare these days. Made sourdough waffles, watched some Food Network, and going to finish Dear Edward today. It’s so good and I wanted to finish it last night but feel asleep. What are your Saturday plans? #slowsaturday
Working from home is amazing, but also kind of hard. I have a tendency to get distracted and unmotivated easily. I thought that I was the kind of girl that didn't need a lot of structure in her life, but it turns out that I do when it comes from being productive when I am my own boss and only answering to myself. I need a brain break and a change of scenery, but I can't always take an hour to go to the coffee shop, so I learned how to bring the coffee shop experience to my home office. Today I'm sharing some tips on how to stay motivated and productive when working from home and coffee breaks are KEY. My work at home friends, what tips do YOU have for staying productive during the day? #EOCBaristaBlends
