01.26.14weekendI have to say 2014 is kind of kicking my butt. I have been juggling a bit too many things, and the stress of it has already started to take a toll (I was supposed to worry less this year rememeber?). It is hard not to work extra long hours when you work for yourself but I don’t think that is good for anyone (especially the work itself!) so last week, I vowed to take back control of my schedule and to plan in some quality me (& Rupe) time. It is all about the balance right?

My two favorite weekend activities for relaxation and recharging have to be napping and hiking, so I made sure to squeeze in some time in for both. We also enjoyed the sounds of silence with a break in the construction (waiting on another inspection), which is most likely what led to the napping.

Our hike took us around Pelican Cove in Palos Verdes. We waded in the tide pools, had a picnic, and laughed at Cracker clumsily navigating through the rocks. The cloudy skies made the horizon line disappear which I always find so eerily beautiful. More photos from the hike here.

Hope you had a great weekend and that you are doing better with your resolutions then me!
