It’s been a minute.
I think I’m going to do a full blog post soon about mindfulness and eliminating distractions because I’ve learned quite a bit from making some small changes this past week. But for now, I’m going to share some shots from the other night when the sky was golden and I finally got to spend some time outside in the fresh air. I love the way the setting sun makes everything in the city glow.
Ever just feel like you can’t keep up with anything that life is throwing at you? That’s been me the past couple of weeks. I feel like I’m treading water and wearing myself out just so I can keep my nose above water. I’m in this constant cycle of working overtime in order to feel less stressed and then feeling more stressed because all I think about is work. I need my mind to just quiet down long enough for me to get some sleep, which is also a rarity lately. I don’t remember the last time I felt this un-rested.
I know it’s only Tuesday, but I’m already looking forward to this weekend because it’s going to be one of no plans. Steve will be heading up to Illinois to play a show on Saturday so I’m genuinely looking forward to having some quiet ‘Laura time.’ I think it’ll do me good to have some time alone to let myself relax. I’m going to hit reset and let myself completely recharge before we head to Denver next week, which I’m SUPER excited for and I think it’s coming at the perfect time. Steve and I are heading there together to go visit my cousin Katelyn and her husband Alex. They’re both our cousins and some of our very best friends. We’re going to see NEEDTOBREATHE play at Red Rocks (Katelyn and I went together last year), and then we’re going to spend some time in other parts of Colorado exploring and spending quality time together.

About my outfit: I recently bought these pinstriped skinnies from Target’s Who What Wear collection and they’ve quickly become my favorite pair of pants that I’ve probably ever owned. They are so versatile and comfortable. With an elastic waistband and stretchy material, they’re easy to wear with almost anything. You can dress them up with a blouse and heels or just wear them with a t-shirt and sneakers. This is exactly my kind of item.
I hope you all have a productive week followed by an exciting or restful weekend. <3
