Sundays are simultaneously my favorite day and my least favorite day of the weekend. To the extent that I can, I try to keep Sundays free so that I can plan meals, clean, do laundry and just be at home. But I can’t say no to breakfast or brunch with a friend, most times.
Having the time and the chance to sit and catch up with a good cup of coffee is nearly perfection – and a great way to start off the Sunday of what promises to be a full week.
There are plenty of great places for breakfast in Saint Paul. This morning I headed out with a friend to The Buttered Tin in Lowertown – and we got there just in time! But strong, hot coffee and a hearty dose of their delicious, daily preparation of smothered hash browns were the perfect start to a lazy day.
It’s been one month since I started my venture with Beautycounter and it’s really been a lot of fun. It allows me a nice balance to my regular job and an opportunity to stretch and use a skill set that I don’t normally get to use.
I’m hoping that as I continue to work towards my goals, I’ll also be able to work towards a personal goal: making a concerted effort to find time to catch up and see what my friends are up to. It’s easy to rush from one thing to the next without taking the time to do the things that fill us back up.
If the current climate in the world has provided me with any wisdom beyond the fact that your voice matters, it’s that we should all try and take time to reset and refresh. That’s the gift that we give ourselves, our significant others, our families, our colleagues and neighbors.
What fills you up? What recharges you?
For me? Cooking, reading, running, music and spending time with my family – both my blood family and my chosen family.
Time for a walk now – it’s a beautiful day today.
