happy monday, friends! how were your weekends? how are your days going so far?
the last few days have been a total blast here in sarasota — in fact, as per usual, here are five fun things from the weekend (actually from thursday night on):
+ gin and jazz at the ritz-carlton, sarasota, with new friends on thursday
+ happy hour with my best sarasota friends on friday night (note: you cannot beat $2.50 wine specials and laughter)
+ hanging out in my friend t.’s pool and eating homemade pizza on saturday afternoon
+ kayaking/paddleboarding on sarasota bay on saturday evening (yes, when i tried to stand up on the paddleboard — it was my first time doing it — i plunged headfirst into the bay. looking forward to pro lessons next week. but it was so fun).
+ a relaxing sunday that involved more time in pajamas than out of them.
and on the commitment agenda for this week:
+ gym time!
+ meal planning. i’m thinking a big pot of curry, a big pot of split pea soup and a big batch of egg salad sound pretty good.
+ catch a sunset by the gulf. it’s been awhile since i’ve done that. (and i’ll take pictures, to boot!)
+ work some more on personal writing projects. i dropped the ball on that a bit in the last few months.
+ believe in my own self worth. a reminder i still need from time to time.
