Week in Review

The fire is roaring, a freshly-cut tree awaits its trimmings, the pugs are snoozing, and I have a cuppa tea within reach. And a looming deadline.

This weekend and next week I’ll tie a bow around HTC10—the 10k word (1/4 the size of Hip Tranquil Chick) follow-up chapter I’ve been writing the past many months.

Next Sunday is our big 10-year celebration at the Pink Palace complete with over a dozen ladies joining in-person and many others online. The decor, menu, pink goody bags (complete with mini bottles of bubbly), and more are all set. The homey details are my happy place.

Now it’s time to wrap up the chapter edits and finalize the Playbook. If you’re joining, look for these treats in your inbox end of next week!

I envision HTC10 as a celebration of the past decade. I look forward to exploring it and dreaming up the next 10 years with you on December 4. Don’t forget your journal, pens, and bubbly! Bisous. x

This week I collaborated with clients, hosted a Facebook Live event, taught a mindfulness class, had tea with a friend, hosted the Daybook Playshop for pre-orders, taught a yoga charity class on Thanksgiving, went to Equinox for a plant-based Thanksgiving meal, saw two films at the theater, penned blog posts, had a dinner date with friends, recorded the HTC10 invite video, released the HTC10 cover, created the Daybook Playshop Guidebook, sent HTC10 to a few talented reviewers, took a few yoga classes, and soaked in the tub.
