week(s) reflection

Each week, for the past three weeks, I’ve started this blog post. And each week, for the past three weeks, something else has stolen my attention — wedding planning, running errands, you name it — and the post sits unfinished and eventually gets trashed. Same can be said for my reading time. And, basically, everything that isn’t related to work, wedding or just surviving. I promise this isn’t going to be another post complaining about my new job but just an observation in my current craziness of a life in which I feel like I’m barely hanging on (how do working moms do it all — seriously?).

What is helping me get by 1) an amazing fiance who is a true partner in pitching in while also dealing with his own work craziness, 2) knowing that in seven weeks all of the wedding planning and preparation will be over and it will be so worth it because I’ll be married to my favorite human, 3) making time for posts like this (even though I’ve let them slide as of recent) because they cause me to reflect and pause and see that despite feeling like I’m going in a million different directions, things are getting done and I am making time to enjoy life and connecting with friends and family, 4) cuddles with my favorite pup, and 5) the seven days of relaxation that await us following the wedding (aka, our honeymoon). CANNOT WAIT!
