The Word

if you have a great ambition, take as big a step as possible in the direction of fulfilling it

Some motivation to help you kick off your week! Anything you’re hoping to tackle in the next five days? On my agenda: finishing up a big e-comm project, organizing our home filing system (it’s years overdue), creating some decorations for this Saturday’s Cinco de Mayo party, and trying out Barry’s Bootcamp for the first time (I’m a little nervous, slash, please send heating pads now). I’d love to hear what you’re working on this week, if you care to share.

Cheers to the week ahead!

    I’m working on pitching myself for a few collaborations I would like to see happen, trying a hybrid yoga class and finally getting around to ditching the junk I weeded out of my closet a few weeks back! I hope you had a great week :)

    It’s a full work week so I’ll be trying to keep up with that and fine tune some great blog content that is on the go. I hope your week starts off well!

    Thanks for the motivation for the last days of class before finals next week! It’ll be a full week of studying for me :) Found your blog recently and I’ve loved following along as transition to your new home! Have a good week.

    Can I tell you what epic nostalgia I’m having right now for last year’s Cinco de Mayo festivities? If it wasn’t for the whole baby thing, I’d be hopping on a plane RIGHT NOW.
    I’m hoping to have a part-time nanny and a copywriter hired (completely unrelated, completely necessary), outlines for upcoming packing guides completed, and getting in some awesome workouts. Time to banish the baby weight!

    LOVE that quote and absolutely ADORE your photo edit! Makes me antsy for the summer fairs to open <3 This quote is so incredibly true…especially for any perfectionists out there like me. Because I want everything to be absolutely perfect, I hold myself back from making the first step and often become stagnant. All we need is to take a step forward, no matter how small, and life will take care of the rest. Thank you for sharing, Victoria!
