Finding Mentors – I've been working really hard on finding rock star business women to learn from and be motivated by these days. I love spending pockets of time going through sites and finding ladies who knock my socks off and remind me to stay inventive, positive and focused. Leigh-Ann from Freckled Nest and Danielle LaPorte from White Hot Truth are different but beautiful daily reads of mine. And they're even Canadian! You can't beat that.
Summer Lifestyle Makeover – While it's still too cold here for a lot of summer clothes (*shakes fists at the sky*) I'm still in need of a summer lifestyle makeover. I'm going to start rising earlier, living with more intention, eating healthier, and working out. I want to glow this summer! I'm going to be mobile for a big part of May, but when I'm home again I'm even going to join a yoga studio. I'm deciding between a Bikram & Moksha studio- any suggestions?
Starting an inspiration journal- I've started to collect images and quotes that resonate with me and collect them all in one place. I found an old binder and covered it in doilies and mod podge and have started printing out pictures and buying magazines to clip up. It's a fun project so far, and there's something about seeing all these things I love in one place that makes a picture of me come into focus in the process.
My scanner – I just inherited one from Mister's family and it's so exciting to be able to scan things! This month's collage is from my most recent scanning rampage. Guard your vintage postcards, I'm on the prowl!
THIS MAY I WILL…
Take an amazing adventure – I can't wait to hit the road this month! Driving from the prairies to the west coast and then coming back through the mountains is something I've always wanted to do. I bought big sun glasses for the occasion and I'm so looking forward to exploring the amazing places you suggested! I've printed out all the suggestions and am slowly working my way through them. More than anything I'm excited for a change of scenery, get me to the ocean & the cherry blossoms! Stat!!
Wish the Vegas Bloggers well – To the girls & guys who are going to Blogger in Sin City next week: HAVE SO MUCH FUN! This will change you in the most amazing way. It's intense, it's a marathon, it's a dream, and it's a weekend of pure love. You will come home with changed feelings about what blogging is. These people will shake you up in the best way possible, and while I can't be there this year, I'm excited to be there to do it all again next year. Bloggers are some of the most amazing, generous people you'll meet and I can't wait to come home and read how in love you are with each other. =)
Learn to use my toy camera – I really wanted a way to make some of the photos on our road trip special, so I bought a lomography camera as my birthday present to myself – she's a Diana! This is my week to figure it out before I hit the road with it, wish me luck!
Have a birthday – I'll be turning 25 in Seattle at a gorgeous bed and breakfast with the Mister. I can't think of a better way to celebrate.
