May in Review

Welcome to June! I hope you’re able to carve out a few minutes over the next day or two to pen your June dreams and do your May review. Here’s the digital version of mine:

Took 10 yoga classes and one ballet class, read two books, sang along to Garth Brooks, fell in love with Midland {they opened for Garth}, saw Wild Nights with Emily, ordered a DC library card, practiced hand lettering with friends, completed and released the Daybook, collaborated with clients, didn’t get my decluttering done {sigh}, created the TDJ Soirée Welcome Guide for guests, had the most adorable puppy come to a therapy session {diagnosed him as incurably adorable} attended a Pug Takeover event in Baltimore and met Hamilton, joined The Wing {color-coded library featured above}, savored a five-hour Mother’s Day brunch with girlfriends {yummy spread above}, enjoyed a six-hour happy hour with neighbors, had a wonderful weekend in Pittsburgh with friends, had another gum surgery {ugh, numbing gel featured above}, Pops adopted the sweetest little kitten {see above}, spotted the pups kissing and holding hands {see above}, spent three days in the forest with Tim and the pups, booked a flight and Airbnb in Paris for late summer, survived two weeks of solo parenting, enjoyed tea dates with girlfriends, toted Gizmo in a sling to help quiet his sundowner syndrome, donated micro-grants through Pigs & Pugs Project, got a cortisone shot in my shoulder {ouch}, took a Bed Day, got an eye exam and annual physical {still too much darn iron in my blood?!}, hair cut/color, savored many vegan cupcakes at Sprinkles.

Analog version coming next complete with washi tape, a glue stick, a Sharpie, and images from Bella Grace.

I wish you space to exhale, sip iced green tea, reflect on the first half of 2019 {where did it go?!}, consider the second half of 2019, love who you are, and love who you are becoming. You’re beautiful. Bisous. x
