soaking it in & integrating

i just got back from nearly a week with dear friends on the oregon coast. i'm trying to catch up with everything that feels backlogged and simultaneously savor the lessons learned during rest and play and loving friendships. i started out my day emailing and prioritizing my day + week and then felt my achy shoulders from the flight and late night coming home and decided i needed a bath (you don't have time my gremlin protested!). then blending up a peach smoothie was in the works (the day is slipping by she yelled!). then i needed to answer more emails, but decided to take my pillows and laptop out to the sunny porch. i'm giving myself a pass to work & play together= it's really good, people. i'm resolved to be a better boss to myself and try to slow down & listen and be more like miss millie.

Thanks for the inspiration. I am still trying to learn how to be a better boss to myself.

Yes! Oh, me too. I have a lot to learn from Miss Millie. I've had the following Mary Oliver quote on my desk for a month: "To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work." A good reminder. xo

Hmm - good point! Note to self only - be a better boss to myself as well :)
I love this painting - and even better that my little girl is named Millie, and that's exactly what I call her :) Miss Millie
