What a whirlwind of a week! I have to say, I’ve loaded too much on my plate in my personal and professional life (especially with the engagement is added to the mix). So this week I’m doing some restructuring making under to keep my life enjoyable and to be able to continue to execute what I intend to do at a high level. If I don’t make these changes, I have a feeling that a lot of balls are going to start dropping and I will be a miserable person without any time to enjoy the blessings in my life.

This should be a time of celebration. Not stress.

Next week I will share exactly how I’m planning on doing just that.

In the meantime, please pardon the fact that I haven’t responded to Twitter in about a week, that emails will go unanswered while I’m at the Macy’s trunk show today, and that I haven’t picked a giveaway winner yet.

I’m choosing to be present at the trunk show and enjoy my weekend! Cuz that’s what designing an intentional life is really all about. The rest will be accomplished on Monday.

Have a great weekend and thank you so much for reading MML!

    Is that a CBJ from Hopleaf I spot in the bottom right corner? I hope so! That’s one of my absolute favorite meals in Chicago. Have a wonderful, relaxing weekend and give yourself a well-deserved break until Monday!

  3. I love your products! Just finding you through my friend Sue at The Zhush! I must place an order ASAP! You are singing my song when you talk about being present! That is the most important thing of all!!!

    Thanks for the quick reply about the dress. Also, wanted to say that I’m a new reader and really enjoy readying your posts. You are open, honest, and genuinely love what you do and helping others. Bravo! It is refreshing and inspiring at the same time, especially as I find myself struggling to find my way as well. I guess we all are.
