Trusting that I will get my white paper written for my CMLX2 certification.  I've never felt so uninspired about something I've written before.

Grateful for the cooler weather and some good nights for sleeping.  I actually hit close to or over eight hours four nights in a row.  I think it's a record!

Inspired by the recent purchase of a new clear table protector for my craft table to actually clean my craft room.  Off to get started.

Had Fun! bridal dress shopping with my girls.  It was an all day affair that started and ended at La Belle Mariee where Becca said YES to the dress!  I'm honoring Becca's request not to share any details, but I think it will be absolutely gorgeous on her.

After the successful shopping trip, and totally for shits and giggles, Becca tried on my wedding gown.  Becca is a skinny thing - much smaller than I think I ever was at her age, so imagine my surprise when we couldn't button her up in the back!  The veil definitely looks better pressed!

Who wore it better?  Sad how little detail those old photos captured.

Trusting that I will continue losing weight on the Bright Line Eating Plan.  I've hit the 10 pound mark from my highest weight and the loss has slowed significantly - as it does every single time I diet.  So I'm trusting that this plan will work and I'll continue releasing excess weight - even if it is slowly!

Grateful to be have a quick getaway with Jay last weekend to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary.  Can't believe we've been together that long!
At Chincoteague Island VA on our anniversary.  We saw the wild ponies plus bald eagles, dolphins, egrets, deer.  Great boat tour!

Inspired by Jessica Swift - just started her new course Create A New Story - looking forward to the transformation it may bring!

Work can occasionally be Fun!  There was a lot of energy around this month's trip (this week) to Rockville and it was good seeing all the colleagues I don't get to interact with on a regular basis.  It's also really nice to be back home!

Trusting that I will develop a morning routine that works for me.  Still a work in progress.

Grateful to be slowly ticking some very old items off my only-exists-in-my-head to do list!  Finally got to Vision Works this morning to order new glasses.  My eye doctor visit was in February.  Yes, it took me that long!  Also, finally took a picture of an award I won in high school, removed the engraved plate and donated the award.  That's been on my to do list for (LITERALLY) years!  And the whole process took about 15 minutes.  Glad to have that niggling thought out of my brain!

Inspired by Bella Grace Magazine.  I am seriously enamored with how beautiful it is!

I had Fun with my girls visiting our first bridal shop on Saturday and watching Becca try on gowns.  She didn't say "yes" to any dress.  But we have more shops to visit later this month.
