Well, this morning didn’t start off on a great foot. Just one of those days I guess.

Body + Mind


Being woken up at 4:30am to a husband thinking it’s Tuesday and an annoying sinus headache was the not the highlight of my week. I haven’t been sick in months and I considered calling in sick to work this morning, but once I got up and moving around I felt better. Even with a cold, I’m pretty sure I feel better today than I would have 30+ days ago.

I finally got back to yoga today after a little hiatus because of the weather. I have to admit I was a little nervous that I would just come home and crawl in to bed after work instead of hang around to wait for class. That’s sort of my M.O. (Which, by the way, I have used that phrase for YEARS without knowing it’s origin. So, in case you’ve never known either; modus operandi from the Latin language meaning method of operation), already being at the gym and then deciding I just don’t have time or the energy or just don’t want to.

I sniffled all the way through class, but the hot studio felt divine and I got much more out of it today than I expected.

House + Home

I forced myself to run my 15 minutes of chores this morning. I really didn’t want to, but I did the dishes, threw in a load of laundry, ran the Roomba and spent about 25 minutes with my planner.

With three snow days this week we got a lot of shit cleaned out of this house, but there’s plenty still to do. The junk drawers are still calling my name.

Hydration + Nourishment

I decided to add this category in place of finances for February. I took on a 28 day challenge for myself to eat greens with every major meal. Success for all three meals on Day 1.

Pizza over greens totally counted for lunch.

Parenthood + Relationships

It was tough getting back in to the swing of things this morning…for everyone. We had some yelling, some tears and some very curt goodbyes. I wasn’t proud of my behavior and I texted my husband to tell him so.

Of course I expected way more back then what I got, but I need to remember that when speaking my truth, it has be be enough to let it go, not the response.

Hi, I'm Katy.
Your lifestyle designer and business mentor.

Writing is my way of unwinding and letting my thoughts roam free. Every so often, in the midst of this creative chaos, something clicks, and I'm like, "Hmm, maybe someone else will dig this too." So, I toss it out into the world, hoping it lands with someone who gets it.
I hope that's you.
