My bag is packed and my weekend officially starts early today; I’m headed to Vegas! I have not had a vacation since I went home to Arizona in December, and I’m itching to ditch the concrete jungle for a couple short days and see the west coast again. I’m meeting up with my siblings and friends for a little weekend reunion and I can barely contain my excitement! Although this won’t really be a vacation with much R&R, it’ll be nice to decompress, close my laptop for a hot minute and take time to enjoy and not work.
I have felt like the past few months have flown by and I’ve barely had a chance to sit down, clear my head and focus on one thing at a time. Working full-time, blogging and styling has definitely kept me a busy bee this spring but I wouldn’t change it for the world! This week marks exactly one year of being graduated from college – seriously!? I don’t feel adult enough to have a year under my belt already. I continue to learn more about myself, my relationships and my passions every day – but with that, I’ve also had to learn how to manage my time. It’s been an adjustment going from a college schedule to a more rigorous adult routine – I have learned to be more organized, move my calendars digitally to keep track (I know I’m way behind on that trend… lol) as well as learning what’s important to me and what to make time to do.
I have made it my goal for 2016 to take time to do more fun/non-work things – like this weekend’s trip to Vegas, or saying ‘yes’ to Happy Hour with the girls instead of answering blog emails (don’t judge). I’m obviously still learning how to be a real adult and manage my time but hey, for one year on my own, I think I’m doing pretty a-okay. So I raise my glass to you adulthood and say ‘cheers!’ And here’s to a not-so-much-adult trip to Vegas ;). Make sure to follow my snapchat and Instagram for a glimpse into my weekend adventures! XO
Also, starting tomorrow I’ll be giving away a $75 e-card toward your very own JORD wood watch, just like mine! Check back for the giveaway link!
