Press Pause

Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
~ Guillaume Apollinaire

After getting back from my short trip to Connecticut, I dove back into work and found myself -- for the first time since starting out this adventure -- stressed out about how much work I had to do, instead of how much work I didn't have.

It's scary to have actual deadlines suddenly, and thrilling to have a couple of opportunities to show my work coming up, but by Friday afternoon, I had completely worked myself into a state.

So it felt both good and completely irresponsible to take the weekend off for a long drive and hike and then (full disclosure here, of course!) a massive Pinterest session.

Sometimes, it seems, you have to press pause to be able to get started.

I hope you're all having a great week!
