If I could summarize my week in one photo it would be:

IMG_0156A mix of work, planning, family, weather and everything else makes me wish that each day this week had 28 hours instead of 24, but am super happy it is Friday and the weekend is almost here.  I apologize for the lack of posts this week and promise it will be back to normal now that our schedules are calming down.

Brian and I found that a good way to calm down at the end of the day is to drink some tea and spend some time, even if its just for a few minutes before we pass out, to check in on each other. I cant speak for him, but I have found that even a few minutes of talking about our day, the random conversations we have had with others, cute animal photos we saw online, or silly things Charlie has done recently, brings me back to the reality that the stress will pass and I am lucky that I have a great guy that lends a listening ear.

How has your week been? Any great tips for relaxing under stress…
