Hello friends! It's a new week and I have a ton on my plate work-wise but I'm feeling so great and ready for the many challenges I have before me. I think this past weekend was a real breakthrough for me in many ways because I actually did nothing in the office. ZERO work. As a result, I feel so refreshed and happy today. I think I've been working too much and it's been draining me. I've decided to give myself the weekends back and to work on being more productive M-F so I can take Saturday and Sunday off. I went to several music fests, went dancing several nights with friends, and in general I let myself go and dropped the whole work stress stuff. If you are overdoing it with work I REALLY suggest letting go for a few days and doing some things you may not have done in a while. I've not gone dancing in months (shame on me) and I'm glad I changed that. I'm really to make some big changes in my personal life this summer so this past weekend was a major start for me. How are you doing? Any changes in your life currently?
I was looking through a bunch of my Pinterest pins recently (love Pinterest) and noticed that when I pin things there is always a theme to them that develops without being consciously aware of it. Have you noticed that with your own pins? It's kinda fascinating to look back and see those themes, they are very interesting - how we sometimes are so blind to our unique internal process of sorting. It's good to pause from time-to-time though to become more aware of how we collect things, what we are collecting, what these things are telling us about ourselves. Here are some of my most recent pins and what they seem to reveal about what's on my mind. :)
A love for fruity sorbet tones, flowers, and a whimsical endless summer is revealed... 1. artpixie via this pin, 2. Lafayette lamp via this pin, 3. Jose Villa Photography via this pin, 4.

Next, I've been pinning lots of German-Irish actor Michael Fassbender right now. Not sure what this really says about me though except that I have exceptionally good taste when it comes to handsome dreamy actors. 1. MF site via this pin 2. PABlog via this pin, 3.
