It has been a quiet week for me and I am enjoying the downtime, just hanging out at home with no place to go. It feels kind of strange as I am always on the go. As I mentioned last week I decided to start the year off slowly instead of rushing back into work and more after the holidays.

This week I am heading back into my normal mode with a trip to Asheville, NC to spend a few days at a blogger’s retreat. I haven’t been to the city in years.

Taking a trip to a place I haven’t been to before always recharges me so I know I will come home filled with ideas and inspiration to share with you.

I hope that you’re enjoying the MLK weekend and allowing yourself to simply be and take it easy.

Now onto the links I found this week.

    A blogger’s retreat sounds perfect this time of year to get geared up for ‘23! Honestly, having trouble getting back in the swing of things so far this year!
