I try to blog once a week. So far it hasn’t been all that difficult. Those of you who personally know me know I’m a bit of a talker, so blogging should be pretty easy once a week! For whatever reason today I’m drawing a blank…writers block I guess.
Maybe it’s because work has been extra busy getting set up for Christmas.
Or maybe it’s because the past two weeks I have worked 6 day weeks with only one day off.
Not only do we have deadlines to be met setting up for Christmas, we also have a corporate visit next week to prep for.
I’ve also been spending more time on one of my hobbies, doing photo shoots for holiday cards, 3 shoots in the past 2 weeks, which is awesome!
I’m not complaining, life is just a little crazy in October! I’m just a little burnt out.
Today I rushed straight from work to soccer practice and I don’t have a recipe planned for tonight’s blog, or for tonight’s dinner. Luckily my hubby is bbqing burgers. All I really want is a glass of red wine, a piece of dark chocolate, my pillow, and maybe some cozy sweats. ( Luckily all of these are paleo 😉 )
My brain is just slow today, so I’m thankful for other awesome paleo bloggers and authors. One of my favs is Julie Bauer of PaleOMG.com and The Paleo Kitchen. She has amazing recipes, and a great sense of humor. I highly reccommend you go buy her book ASAP!
