Happy Sunday! If you get my email newsletter, you know that my laptop suddenly died last week. Hence, I’m slow to respond to emails and blogging is a bit behind too. But, that okay – that’s life! I’m currently using Tommy’s laptop to catch up on some things, and planning to do something active (easy run or the driving range) once I finish. I’m feel exhausted and worn out, but I’m blaming the fact that I had wine the past two nights and I RARELY drink. Or, you know, it could just be life catching up to me. It’s been a few crazy months. So many good things, but also exhausting in many ways. I’ve been crashed on the couch for about 3 hours, which has been pretty nice. Drizzly gray days are good for that. And when all else fails to give me energy, I pop on some lipstick and curl my hair and fake it ’til I make it.

Alright, to the links!
Five Things I Learned from not Drinking for Four Months. Loved this, especially considering I only have about 2-3 drinks a month and can resonate with a lot of it, especially this: “I like the idea of drinking a lot better than the experience of it.”

Favorite Beauty Regimen. I love hearing when others fall in love with Beautycounter!
Loved reading this morning routine, especially this part: In some weird, paradoxical way, spending the first part of each morning focusing on decidedly transcendental topics actually keeps me grounded during the rest of the day. It reminds me that 95 percent of the things I’m going to instinctively want to flip my lid about during the day ahead just aren’t that big of a deal.
