One thing nobody every really calls out about getting older is how intentional you have to be with your time. If you tell yourself you'll do something "whenever I get the time," you'll probably never do it. You have to make the time - and sometimes take the time - to do all the things you want, while reconciling it with all the things you need to do.

So this past Friday, I knew I'd have a nice window to myself in the early afternoon. I really needed to do a load of laundry. I also needed/wanted to walk the dog. However, I really wanted to grab a bougie latte from a millennial's daydream of a coffeeshop. I let Raven run around in the backyard while I put the load in the wash; then I asked J to put the stuff in the dryer while I was gone (spoiler: he forgot). Off I went. 

Keeping it brief today:

Picture it: blogspot, 2013.

You log in on Monday to make a post about your weekend. It's filled with candid snaps of all the fun things you did, and random text tidbits for context. You hit publish. People who follow your feed tap in, read, comment, and otherwise engage. There is little-to-no pressure. Life is good.
