Happy Friday! I hope you all enjoyed the short week and had a great start to the year. We actually had a harder week than we anticipated as you’ll read below. I am quite ready for the weekend and a fresh start on Monday!
This week’s rose was just the optimism of the new year! I loved reading so many of my favorite bloggers’ goals for 2018 and deciding on some of my own goals to tackle this year (which I’ll share on the blog next week!). I got to hear from lots of you on this Instagram post about your travel plans for 2018 and it got me even more inspired to start booking upcoming trips.
This week’s thorn came on Tuesday, when I returned from Cabo to find that there was a glitch on my blog’s backend preventing me from uploading new images (hence the lack of post that day) and later that night when I ran downstairs to a frozen pipe that had burst in our kitchen, soaking the wood floors in an inch of standing water. I spent Tuesday night sopping up the water with every towel in our house and then all of Wednesday with a plumber and an electrician who fixed the pipe and actually were able to jumpstart our thermostat/radiators as well. We’re waiting to see how badly the floors will warp and whether they need to be replaced, but needless to say it was not the productive start to the new year that I’d been so looking forward to. I might actually do a post on this next week if you guys are interested — there’s always so much hype to having the perfect fresh start to a new year, but it’s so important not to fall into a rut just because things weren’t perfect from the get-go. Here’s to hitting the reset button this weekend!
