I was coming off of a fun, yet productive weekend and feeling pretty good.
Last week, I started the week feeling unusually stressed and overwhelmed…with wedding season under way, still setting up my business, and a full weekend and week ahead, it all hit me and honestly, paralyzed me a little. But oh what a few days, a few lists, and a few kind words from strangers can do. And then the week ended with a royal wedding and a tea and lunch date with girlfriends! Can’t ask for anything more lovely. We had already made plans for afternoon tea at our favourite place, The Little White House, without realizing how fitting the date was. I felt as though I should wear a dress and fancy hat for the royal occasion.
The weekend continued with sunshine, a photo session with an adorable, young family, and a girls’ night with my mom and sister. Sunday afternoon brought about a perfect, styled photo shoot in which Shane and I got to model. A springtime picnic, sunlight streaming through the tall trees, bicycles…watch for those photos on Robyn’s blog! Robyn’s husband, Andrew, came along as second shooter, and to wrap up our day, we went for dinner and swing dancing. We realized dance lessons would be extremely beneficial for next time but we made it work and laughed our way through it.
Like I said, I was coming off of a fun weekend. But then the stomach flu had its own agenda. It crept up out of nowhere and hit me so now I lie here on the couch, my to-do list pretty much thrown out the window. My new list consists of sleep, drink Gatorade, eat saltines, and watch a movie. And hope and pray I beat this quick because this busy and promising month of May isn’t going to wait!
