I’m restless. Things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again.―Anaïs Nin

Month in Review

I’m staring at my computer while listening to a French cafe playlist and the synchronized snoring of pugs. This Month in Review is a bit late. Okay, quite late. I almost decided to skip it, but instead thought spending my Friday night on it would feel better. So here I am, pondering August mid-September.

Last month’s highlights included a trip to NYC and the cherry on top was the meetup, taking lots of ballet, enjoying a weekend jaunt to West Virginia, releasing the self-care module of Year of Tranquility, brunch and tea dates with girlfriends, setting up my new office, hosting a childhood friend in DC for a night, snuggling with the pups, dreaming up TranquiliT’s fall designs (video from today’s shoot), and collaborating with therapy and mentoring clients.

While in NYC I hit Strand (of course) and picked up a 500-page biography on Anaïs Nin. When looking for a quote to embody my current mood, hers above felt like the perfect fit.

As mentioned in last month’s review, I’m craving a brief escape once I get through the events over the next six weeks. November and December are quiet other than the holidays, so I’ve got my eye on them for a getaway. Where? To be determined. The tugs at my hair are getting stronger and stronger.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend ahead with an opportunity to listen to those things that are calling. Bisous. x
