Happy Friday Babes!
We’ve made it another week! Let’s give ourselves a round of applause. As we gear up for the long weekend, I can’t help but ponder about how different this year’s holiday weekend looks compared to year’s past. Usually around this time, I’m preparing for the parade of backyard bbq’s, lawn games and stocking up on my favorite Leinenkugel Summer Shandy. There’s something about taking that first sip around this time that’s almost an inaugural Summer tradition, it hits differently.
This year though, with no lake house visits or afternoon gatherings in sight, I’m kind of taking solitude in the quietness of it all. How many obligations do we volunteer for that we actually don’t have much interest in in the first place? Memorial Day is no exception. Instead of playing merry go ’round to family and friends houses, I’m taking this weekend to do some tasks I’ve actually been looking forward to. Organizing my room, going to a restaurant with a couple of friends (something I haven’t done in a very long time), drinking wine and grilling out on my own balcony. Wow, I really am an introverted extrovert lol. Well, whatever your plans look like this year, I hope you take the extra day to participate in something you actually want to do, and don’t feel obligated to do. You deserve that extra day. You really do.
And if you catch yourself looking for a quick escape, some time for yourself, here are some of the most entertaining links I found around the web this week. Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
