It's true, sometimes you just need a day off. Lately I've been feeling so overwhelmed with school work, especially this weekend with having two tests to complete and also an outline of a twenty page theoretical essay to do, so yesterday I took a "Mental Health Day."
The weather was gorgeous (although, it has been warming back up), and I wanted nothing more to do just relax do a few things that would make me happy and be good for my soul. So I started the morning with some girl time with Courtney (yoga and coffee), and running around to a few fun places in Scottsdale, Tempe, and Phoenix with Scott.
Lately I've been realizing how important it is to find time for myself and not worry about all that I have going on. Also, with not going to an in-peron class very often anymore, it's still so important to get ready for the day in my best duds. Sometimes it's so easy to fall into a routine of plan t-shirts and jeans every day, but I feel it's still so important to "dress for success" (that is, the success of finishing all of my homework and feeling great about it). Oh, and I have to say that I felt totally like myself in this outfit. Cardigans and cute booties make all outfits that much more sweeter.
On another note, Scott and I took these photos a few days ago after having lunch at Sprouts in East Mesa. The orange and lemon orchards that are so frequent in East Mesa will always have a place in my heart, and I will always take the chance to go on a nice walk through them given the opportunity.
Today I'm feeling very much refreshed and ready to take on my stacks of homework. I keep telling myself, one thing at a time. I've already got my iced coffee and I'm ready to take on the day.
