I've spent far too much time this morning sipping on hot tea, listening to Adele, and reading fellow blogger's new posts. Like, far too much time. Sam and Oliver have both fallen back asleep next to me and I can't help but listen to their little snores and think about how lucky I am to have these two in my life. I cherish our weekends together so much, whether we're relaxing and catching up on our favorite shows or exploring a little town on our bikes, it is always so special to me.
I think that in the beginning stages of launching Anna Elizabeth, it was difficult for me to find a healthy work/life balance. Working full-time during the week while trying to make the blog as successful as I possibly could, and making sure that my relationships with my family and friends didn't suffer because of it felt truly overwhelming. I felt like I couldn't give 100 percent to any area of my life. But, as we've adjusted as a family and learned how to work on projects together and make them fun and exciting (and even romantic!), it's become easier to integrate each area of my life.
That being said, recently Sam has been discovering the best locations for us to shoot new projects (he travels a lot for work). So, today we're taking a little afternoon trip to the countryside for some photos and afterwards, we'll be on the lookout for a cute, little spot for lunch - preferably with a wine tasting. Tomorrow, we're finishing off the weekend by celebrating Sam's birthday (again) with a special dinner I have planned on the roof deck overlooking the city.
What are your plans for this weekend? Do you have any tips for finding a healthy work/life balance? Let me know in the comments!
