Monday. There are a lot of times that Mondays are difficult. Then there are plenty of times when Monday is a joyful relaxing day.  I wouldn't say this Monday was either of those things. 

I am going back to NYC for the first time since I have moved. It is the longest I've been away from my city. I am surprisingly just fine, if not happy, to not be living in NYC-a sentence I NEVER thought I would utter, like ever. It's not that I am so majorly in love with Chicago (although a great city!) or even that I don't love NYC with all my heart (because I do); but it's time for a new chapter in my life, one that includes my favorite place in the US, Southern California. 

While waiting for my flight to board I notice that there are a ton of people near the gate to board, waiting, ready to pounce! Yet they have called no one to board, not even the fancy people. I keep thinking, 'you guys need to chiiillll out!' Then I remembered that this plane is definitely filled with New Yorkers and I most definitely used to be one of those people waiting in line way before necessary. I feel relaxed that I'm not as tightly wound as I used to be. I can't wait to be even more open once I make the move to SoCal. 🌊🏖🙏

Top three things that brought me happiness on this Monday
  • Oiling up! With flying Thieves is my number one best friend! Always important to keep that immune system going, especially on planes!✈💺 
  • Cleaning the kitchen before I left our apartment, I love coming home to a clean (or at least 'cleanish') space!🔑🗝
  • Watching a Hallmark movie about a single mom and her two girls who move back to South Carolina from LA. Just a sweet story with some serious eye candy 😋

    What is one thing you did today to beat the Monday Monster?! 👻 ❤️‍❤️‍👻
