If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, then you are an excellent leader.

I’m still just getting comfortable sharing my lows. I’ve actually considered for a second not having this section because I hate to feel like I’m complaining. But I’m going to keep it for now because it also rubs me the wrong way when bloggers never talk about anything other than the positive. My lows this week are really just two things. One is that I kept waking up with different aches and pains. It was like each day had a different random ache! The second is that my skincare routine is no longer working very well, so I’m having random, unusual breakouts but I’m remedying that so hopefully it goes away quick.

Okay, one big high is this: I’ve been wanting an instant camera for awhile but just couldn’t justify spending $60-$90 on one when I already have my iPhone 8+ and Fujifilm X-T20 to shoot with. The good news is that I scored one on Poshmark for literally $12! It was actually $30, but I somehow had $25 in credit (I must have sold something and never transferred the money over), so it came down to $6 plus $6 for shipping, thus I got a minty blue Instax 8 Mini for $12. 😊

Last Sunday, I started the week off with dinner at my friend’s house after begging her to make me her signature meal, a piccata with fresh, homemade pasta topped with feta. We laid by the pool, had dinner and drinks, and talked all about our upcoming trip to Europe which is coming up so quickly. The rest of the week was pretty much working, running errands, and a lot of reading! I got some new things from the library that I’m excited to recap at the end of the month.

This morning, I’m heading to the beach to do some reading, get some sun, and go swimming for the earlier part of the day and then later, just running some errands and come home to finish up extra work. Then, next weekend, I’m planning on getting up early to go to the farmer’s market.
