Checking in…

Life right now continues to be about adjusting to Seattle. The dogs are loving it here, Avu is working away and I’m figuring out what my daily and weekly routines are going to look like. I’m already fully embracing my new neck of the woods — we went on a rainy but beautiful hiking trip last weekend (and the pups LOVED the mud). I have a friend visiting in a few weeks so that should give me another excuse to do some exploring and let my inner tourist out. 😎

How is the new year kicking off for everyone? It’s the beginning of March, which means it’s just around that time when a lot of new year’s resolutions fall to the wayside. It’s cold, it’s likely raining, and let’s be honest, life is busy and inconvenient a lot of the times. It’s easy to say, ‘I’ll get to it later’, or ‘I’ll refocus next month’. But the truth is, and we all know it, that putting off self-care efforts, and putting off those good habit building commitments we made to ourselves only gets harder the longer we let it go on. So let’s challenge ourselves to be present, to stick to our goals, and to embrace each and every day for the beautiful gift that it is.

Speaking of goals…
