Frivolous: playful, lighthearted, trivial; the little things in life that should be savored.

Favorite Outfit of the Week: Polka dot dress (with pockets!): Delia's / Coral cardigan: Anthropologie / Belt: Urban Outfitters / Boots: Cathy Jean / Necklace & earrings: probably Target / Boot socks: Madewell

If you're here in hopes of following my adventurous, glamorous life, prepare to be disappointed. The above outfit was basically the only time I got out of my PJs all week.

Canceling a 10-day trip is a great way to free up your schedule. This week was WIDE open. But I managed to fill it with blowing my nose a hundred gazillion times, taking another decongestant, writing a 27-page manual, ordering canvases, color-correcting a fun styled-shoot, multiple naps, and blowing my nose another gazillion times.

Highlight of the week: Our office was a sad state of affairs with me, the sickling, taking care of cute, can't-move-my-neck, permanently-affixed-to-the-ice-pack Sara, who was in so much pain that she had to go to the chiropractor FOUR times this week. It made me feel better to get to take care of someone who was even worse-off than me. And we did have a few good laughs at our own expense.

Yes, I did this:
1 -- Had the esteemed job of picking up anything that fell on the floor since Sara couldn't bend that way.
2 -- Ate a really tasty arugula salad in front of people like a cow eats grass. Couldn't figure out how to eat the thing without lettuce sticking out of my mouth. Some things should not be served at events with other people at them.

Celebrating: Even though I spent the week sick and didn't get to visit the friends I had hoped to see on my trip, I still had enough energy to get a few major tasks checked off my list. Huge sense of accomplishment.

Went to a great industry networking event and reconnected with so many great vendors in the Phoenix area. Networking was one of my tougher challenges when I first started my business. But now it's one of my favorite things to do. I feel so blessed to have cultivated so many genuine friendships with some really great people who I get to work along-side. Now, when I attend industry events, instead of feeling like the awkward kid in the corner, I feel like I'm walking into a family reunion and catching up with some of my favorite people.

Feeling Blessed: I have the sweetest dog who snuggles me, even when I'm sick, a job that I never tire of, and so many things to look forward to.
