Another great week in the books, my friends. Another week filled with moments of joy, a few challenges and lots of in-between.
This week I had strained a muscle in my back. And while I’ve had issues with my back my whole life, this was one of the first times that I didn’t let the “pain” get to me. Instead, I took it easier, embraced the forced “slower” days and gave my body a little TLC (which if you know me, you know I don’t do “slow”). It was a great reminder to listen to your body and just embrace wherever you’re at. I also had the chance to try out Equilibria’s CBD cream with this new injury and I have to tell you, I loved it and think that’s why I healed so quickly.
This week I also had the privilege of being able to work with my sister and best-friend with Beautycounter (which you can read more about here). It was honestly just so fun. I couldn’t stop smiling during our entire meeting. What a gift is that! I feel so lucky to be doing something I’m passionate about – surrounded by people I love. Seriously cool pinch me moment.
But proably the best part of my week has been having my mom in town helping me this week. At 40, I think I appreciate my mother’s help now, more than ever. It takes a village to do all of this – raise kids, have a career, and just simply make it through the day! We can’t do any of it alone. I’m working on getting better about asking for help – and feel blessed to have my mom as the center of my little village.
Ok, before I get too sappy here, let’s jump into this week’s Friday Favorites. Lots of goodies here….
