A Long Blissful Weekend

Today is my favorite kind of Monday. The kind where I wake up slowly, sip coffee in bed while reading, and don't feel rushed to go anywhere or get anything done. The kind where my husband just delivered me breakfast in bed while I type. There's a special joy that comes with starting your day off in a slow way, am I right?

 Its easy to forget the real meaning behind this glorious day off, but I hold a special place in my heart for the men and women that have served our country. So today-I say thank you. Thank you for your bravery and service. I remember those that gave up their lives for our country, and say a special prayer for all the military spouses who sacrifice so much.

This weekend has been a long one for me and extremely relaxing. We went on a breakfast date Saturday morning, along with some cleaning and laundry, and I have finally started the process of redoing my office. I have big plans for that office but it will be a long slow process. As much as I wish I could run out and buy everything I want to decorate and furnish it, its more like one purchase at a time. Dang those pesky things called budgets.

On my agenda for the rest of my day is some serious studying for my PHR test-I take that on Saturday. I'm also going to put on that next coat of paint on my desk and hopefully put the clear coat on too.  Don't worry that we had to sand off my first layer of paint because it looked like a five year old painted it.

  1. You look gorgeous! And you're right, it's easy for me to think that this day is all about cookouts, sprinklers, and family, but it's so much more than that. And I'm so grateful for the servicemen of our country who make our freedom possible! Enjoy your day, sweet friend. And I can't wait to see the desk--I know it's going to turn out fabulous!

  2. I LOVE starting my mornings off slowly! Unfortunately, that usually means I need to actually get up when my alarm goes off - booooo!

  3. you have such a beautiful smile, Brittany.
