been tracking my time, et toi? um, apparently i work more than i thought. will be interesting to tally the hours at the end of the week. think i need overtime or sOMe sort of raise. will talk to my boss!

listening to a little tori amos while blogging and prepping to hit the gym. my pre-op (to ensure i’m healthy enough to undergo anesthesia) appointment with my doctor yesterday showed that i’d gained 5lbs and lost .5 inches. um, yikes! to the gym i go.

i found the above photo and thought it exuded the ideal image of self-care: donning noir and reading while lounging in a white chaise. perfection.

what does *self-care* look like to you? for me it’s hot baths with LUSH products, naps, tea sipping, boundary setting, moisturizer, succulent summer fruit, journal writing, exercise, yoga, meditation, taking classes on exciting topics, lots of sleep, lit candles, and surrounding myself with positive people to name a few.

considering this week consists of:
finals (after tomorrow, done with my first year of MSW!), moving studio spaces, prepping to leave town for 2 weeks, surgery appointments, hosting a bebe shower, shipping oodles of TranquiliT (40% off sale through friday: code SUMMERTIME), overseeing the fall TranquiliT photo shoot – oh and the other daily to-dos, i’m loving the notion of self-care and doing all i can to infuse small doses of it.

exhibit A: off the gym with a belly full of chickpeas and naan. yum!

THAT is the secret. add it where you can. treat yourself to a container of cut watermelon. go to bed early. get a pedicure.

your soul will thank you.
