It is officially summer time and that means life is about to get 20 times crazier and 100 times more fun! This summer is about to be insane! I have weddings to attend, visitors to entertain, backpacking trips, weekend getaways, and of course summer camp! I am seriously so excited and it begins with this coming weekend as I take a very common trip to San Diego. Although I am about 92% excited about this summer I still find myself 8% nervous as well. This summer is the first summer I will be trying to juggle both my part time job and freelance. I love my clients and love what I do, but I also love adventures, friends, laughing till I cry, spontaneous all nighters and city visits. So how will I handle it all this summer… deep breaths, little sleep, remembering that life is worth living and knowing that it will all happen with one step at a time. Hopefully the excitement of summer and adventures will always out weigh the fear of not getting things done this summer, but I guess we will all have to wait and see! On this note I must admit my blogging will be cut to a minimum this summer as I try to juggle everything else, but I promise I report on all the adventures and do monthly re-caps of all the trips! So for my first summer post I thought I would share with you my summer essientials that I believe are a must for the summer time (especially that swimsuit from topshop)! Happy start of summer friends!!
Happy weekend friends! This weekend I will be attending my first baseball game of the season! A fun fact you may not know about me is that I used to be pretty into sports. My family is a spots family, so growing up I tried almost every sport. This also means I have been to a lot of major league games as well. We grew up driving to Seattle often to watch the Mariners play. Although I am not the biggest fan of gathering around the TV to watch a game, I do have a love for actually going to the stadium to see a game live. So needless to say I am pretty excited for my first game of the season! I hope you all have a beautiful weekend and get to spend it doing something you love with people you love!
It is another working weekend over here! But don’t feel sorry for this girl because come Tuesday I am heading to SD for a little getaway!! Woo I am so excited! I hope you all have a beautiful weekend and find some time to relax, adventure and play! OH and don’t forget to tell your mom how wonderful she is and make her feel special because Sunday is mothers day!!
This is a simple weekend wear post in honor of a simple and reflective day. Although Easter is meant to be bright and celebratory, good friday is messy, hard and meant to be processed to really be able to experience all the glory of Easter. Today I attended my first Good Friday service in years and was reminded of the importances of Good Friday and how much you need it to fully embrace it to understand Easter. I am thankful for this weekend and plan to give some devoted time to resting and processing life of where I am and where I am going. I need this weekend to get me back on track as lately it seems I have been on the fast track and just going through the motions instead of being present and really intentional. I want to be intentional with everyday and live with purpose and meaning and that first means recharging and refocusing on what your doing and why your doing it. I am excited for this weekend and the hope, reflection and rest that is in store. I hope you all have a beautiful Easter weekend and take time to rest, reflect and find hope in where you are at.
PS: Next Monday is my blogs 1st birthday so stop by on Monday because there will be a big first for the blog that you do not want to miss!!!! Happy Good Friday Friends!
This post should be called “outfit Casey is most likely to be seen in” haha! If I could wear a dress and leggings every day for the rest of my life I would be one happy girl. But I live in California therefore I can only wear leggings half of the year and the other half I am committed to shorts (its hotttt) or at least the dress without the leggings ya know.
Anyways it is Friday everyone and I am so happy it is the weekend! I have had a very long week of deadlines, playing catch up and answering emails that I am ready to slow down a bit. It seems like ever since I have moved to Orange County I have not stopped going. I always seem to be running from one thing to the next and very often having my head down focused on work until the weekend comes and I take off on some trip to visit friends or to the mountain. Yesterday I decided to take a break in the middle of my day and walk to meet a friend for lunch. I honestly was so happy by the end of lunch just from getting outside taking a walk and see all the smiling faces around my little town. It was such a good reminder for me that for my personal health to stay balanced and healthy as a human I need to take breaks, take a walk, go for a run and spend time with people. I love what I do so at times it is hard for me to see that what I do does not fully fill me all the time and I must be ok with that. As a person I need relationships, exercises, conversation, community along with the love of my job so much more to live a healthy happy life. Besides when I am happy and healthy I will be even better at what I do.
So this weekend although I know I need to catch up on some work, plan for the week ahead and connect with some clients I also know I need to do more stuff for me. Things that make me happy and feel full like going on a run, hangout with friends and spend some with God and my Journal. I want to make a goal to stop living my life from check point to check point and start living in the journey and adventure again and it will start with today! Happy Friday Friends (sorry for the rant from a workaholic)!!
