Hi! Happy Friday! I hope you all have a great weekend planned or no plans to ensure maximum lounging and spontaneity. I’m still recovering from surgery and finally got out of the house for a couple of hours last night for pizza with friends. I’m stir-crazy, but trying to be patient so I can heal more quickly. In this vulnerable state I’m realizing that I’m not very good at leaning on others or asking for help. That kind of support wasn’t really there for me growing up and into my twenties, so I’m trying to recognize this and become more comfortable with it now that I have supportive, truly nurturing people in my life. Lots of inadvertent soul searching lately — it’s unnerving, but for the best, I think. I hope. Have a good weekend and please do some cartwheels and frolicking out there for me! ♥ Jen

So sorry for the super light week of content! I had so many posts in the works that will have to wait until next week. I ended up in some terrible pain and having to go to several doctor’s appointments to sort things out and it looks like unavoidable surgery, unfortunately. It is inspiring me to finally get a little more personal in some upcoming posts as I’d mentioned I’d wanted to do in the beginning of the year, so I guess that’s good. This weekend will be spent doing some physical stuff that we need to tackle before I’m useless lifting heavy boxes for a bit. I’ve had laparoscopic surgery once before, but I guess going under still scares the hell out of me. I wish I could be a little stronger for other women who have never gone through surgery to help overcome some difficult women’s health issues, but I need that kind of pep talk myself at this point! The only thing I can say is that you should find a surgeon who really feels like the right fit for you — I think that’s important for peace of mind. I guess I feel that way about any doctor — find your people who make you feel safe and confident in their hands. OK, this is a weird Friday post! Ha. I hope your weekend is full of zero troubles and lots of fun. See you next week. xo Jen

HAPPY FRIDAY! I’m excited for this weekend because I have plans to make some nice food to store — like quick refrigerator pickles and also a batch of pesto and pasta sauce to freeze. I might do a little baking too in the early hours this weekend before we are sweltering. I’m going to start the book my psychologist suggested I read and I look forward to getting out of my own way. I hope I find some new approaches — it’s been a difficult year. Oh, and I’m going to try to finally watch Poldark! Has anyone been watching? Have fun out there! xo Jen

I’m so happy to be home after doing some traveling up to Seattle last week. It was so good to see some beloved close friends, but I’m really looking forward to catching up on sleep, work and house projects this weekend. I’ve had a bit of insomnia lately, so I’m all out of sorts and, frankly, pretty cranky. I’m also looking forward to stopping by the big Renegade handmade market this weekend — it looks insanely good! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! HAPPY FRIDAY! xo Jen
