Well, Vancouver, our summer together is being cut a little short, but it’s been great! I’ve eluded to the fact that I’m going to be travelling for most of the next six weeks, but here are the details on where I’ll be and when:
August 9-17: Victoria
August 19-25: Road Trip to Edmonton
August 26-September 7: Toronto
September 12-15: Road Trip to Portland
September 17-21: New Orleans
So, I’m literally only home for 1 day in the next 30… whew! That’s crazy to think about.
There’s a really good mix of work/play in all of this. Whenever I go home to Victoria, I still work my regular hours, so it’s business as usual there. However, I am taking August 19-25 off for my road trip to Edmonton. My trip to Toronto is for work + my boss’ wedding. Then I’m going to Portland for fun and to New Orleans for FinCon! (Will I see you there!?)
I’m sure by the end of it I’ll be anxious to sleep in my own bed again but, as of right now, I am so, so, so excited to see all my favourite people in these cities and explore the ones that are new to me (Edmonton, Portland, New Orleans). If you have any recommendations of things I should do, places I should see and, especially, places I should eat, I’m all ears! For now, I should get back to packing…
The high of my week was taking the entire weekend off from all writing. I went for a long hike, saw lots of friends, relaxed and slept… it was awesome and so needed.
A blog post I loved was You Get 25,000 Mornings as an Adult by James Clear. First, I’m a dork and loved the calculation at the beginning. But then his list of ways to get the most out of your mornings was full of both mindfulness and productivity hacks. I’m currently trying to figure out what #1 and #8 look like for me.
The best money I spent was $5.34 on a tub of coffee-flavoured Greek yogurt. How ridiculous does that sound!? But I swear it’s the best discovery I’ve made in weeks!
My plans this weekend include packing tonight, catching an early morning ferry to Victoria tomorrow, then just spending time with family and friends. See you soon! xo
How was your week, friends? What are you up to this weekend?
