We are half way through this years monthly mood board challenge! I am already thinking of what next years theme for the blog should be. Maybe a monthly round up of awesome food spots in the Bay Area, if you have any suggestions leave a comment down below! I am writing this blog post a couple days after returning back from my family reunion in Hawaii. It was refreshing to take a break from daily tasks and chores to truly let my mind rest and be at ease. Remembering to designate time for self care is a common theme that I talk about in our monthly updates with each other. As always there is a little disconnect coming back from vacation and starting the daily grind of life again. Instead of saying no to going on a small walk or going for a drive to your favorite dessert place, say yes! Keep the positive activities constant even when you are back to everyday life. Don't just have a vacation and think you can't treat yourself everyday, keep it going by adding in daily doses of positive and fun activities for yourself daily!
