Since it'd been four years since my last graduation party, I'd forgotten that I wouldn't have much time to sit and visit with people. Instead, I felt like I was running around like a crazy person [in heels]!
Sincerely Sara Cate can vouch for me, I was making the rounds to say hello thank you for coming, and barely got to take a few bites of food - Thank you Sara for making me a plate!
Here is a photo of Dashing [Sara's husband], myself and Sara from the party! I love them dearly and am so fortunate that they were able to make the two-hour drive to attend.
But I don't want to use this post to talk about my grad party - it deserves its own space. The idea of sitting down to write about it works perfectly with my theme for "Mindful Monday."
This week I want to make sure to take time to do the little things that make me happy. Since I'm living with my parents who are early risers, I haven't gotten much "me time," which would normally consist of drinking coffee and reading/writing blogs in the morning for about an hour. Without offending them, I need to find a part of the day when I can be selfish and do these things. Blogging, journaling and reading really help tap into my creativity and passions - I'm not willing to give that up anytime soon!
I hope each of you can continue to find the time to do what makes your heart happy!
HAPPY MONDAY, XO!
