Following along with Ali Edwards today in sharing a piece of what is happening currently in my life.

Breathing through the stressful parts of today and remembering who my anger was created by instead of lashing out at someone who does not deserve it.

Forgiving my employees for the things that they do that I will never understand.

Being respectful and mindful of my emotions when I am disciplining said employees.

Trying to give second (third, fourth…) chances to people.

Beginning to pack for our upcoming trip to Colorado.

Working on being more relaxed. All the time, but especially when I get home from work.

Brainstorming projects and products. Creating a blogging calendar so that I can be more consistent for myself.

Remembering that writing here and creating things  is supposed to be fun, not something that needs to get done, its something I want to do.

Enjoying the few hours Steve and I have together after work each night since we will both be working the next two weekends.

Patiently waiting until I can see my family back home again.

Reorganizing my desk at work and craft space at home, over and over again.

Reminding myself that a year from now I will think back to this stressful part of my job and know that it has made me a better person and manager. Reminding myself that this is experience needed to get to where I want to go.

Taking more pictures of the every day stuff. We don’t have children (and we aren’t sure that we want them either) so trying/remembering to document the day to day life gets put to the side when things like work and homework have to get done.

Being excited for what the next few months hold. Excited to travel (I love flying), excited to close chapters and start new ones.

Waiting for it to cool off (hopefully this weekend!) so that we can take more walks.

List(less) Wednesday

Steve. Love of my life. Showing me his Circa shirt and graciously allowing me to take instax pictures of him. all. the. time.

1. I have decided that instead of posting my instax minis in one photo post or something I am going to use them to accent my List(less) Wednesday posts. Steve here has no relevance to the rest of the list. He is just adorable, that one.

2. As of Monday, I am officially a salaried employee. As of Monday, I was promoted to a position that is…that it just is. Things have to be approved through our State licensing agency so I won’t say much about it until its all said and done (6 weeks!) but man. Life moves fast.

3. We have found a hotel in Colorado (Breckenridge) for the beginning/middle of October.  It will work for now but the prices have been all over the map lately. One week at our favorite hotel (Aloft) they are in the $75.00 range and this week they are in the $134.00 range. Its driving me bonkers. We decided on a resort-type hotel actually in Estes Park at the moment, but regardless I think we’ll end up in that area anyway. If anyone out there has any suggestions please let me know.

4. Printed 105 photos to tidy up the lose ends of my PL (3 weeks worth!) and decided that I am going to fill last week with journaling and minimal photos and then I will get pictures and get them posted. I still love that project, I have just been playing catch up for a month after my time off in the beginning of the month.

5. I strangely enough have been setting up my posts in advanced to publish. I know a lot of, if not all, of the bloggers I follow do this, and man, does it make me feel better. I like this little piece of the internet, I like having it to myself, my life, and my photos, and I like posting here. Its strange this blog thing.

*I also want to welcome my family and friends this week. Until early this week I had not truly shared this space with my real life people. Not out of needing to hide it or anything like that but I have been working on building content and getting to a place where I can post 6-7 times a week on a consistent basis and have enough content to fill the space. Enjoy :]!
