A Week in Review

This week has been all about change. I chopped off my hair, had a number of meetings about some major upcoming changes to the blog, and tonight I celebrate the engagement of one of my best friends. Normally I hear the word change and shrivel up like a snail covered in salt, but there’s something about a new year that encourages a switch.
My dad once told me that change isn’t difficult, it’s the decision to make the change that’s the hard part. But this week I’ve been all about the decisions: chop of my hair, slice off that mole, discard those shoes, to hell with that bitch! And I have to say, it’s one of the most refreshing things I’ve done for myself.
So, since I’m clearly in a “preachy” mood, I’ll leave you with this: if you’re thinking about making the change, just rip off the bandaid and do it. Nothing’s permanent. Well, unless it’s plastic surgery or something…

Although it means the end of the weekend, Sunday is one of my favorite days of the week. I love how relaxed they are, particularly when the previous night doesn’t result in a hangover and the Monday ahead isn’t overwhelmingly busy. While in the spring and summer I enjoy spending my Sundays brunching with friends, I find that winter calls for more quiet and peaceful Sunday afternoons.
I spent all of yesterday lounging around in my pajamas catching up on reading while sipping on a delicious latte from my neighborhood cafe, D’Espresso, and finished the day with a hot, relaxing bubble bath. And even though I barely left my couch, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect way to end my weekend and a better way to start this week.
