The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Weekend . . .  

August 26, 2011

The Weekend . . .

For me, this is the last weekend before I am headed back into the classroom. As I reflect on this past summer, I look back at all the bliss, items checked off my to-do list and new faces I have had the fortunate opportunity to meet, and beam because it has been a fantastic summer. And while I am appreciative for what the summer has afforded me, I am striding forward as I glance back because I am thoroughly anxious for what the next season will bring.  I have high hopes, but why not. After all, unless we aim for the moon we can’t land among the stars.  So I am shooting for the galaxies and beyond and I hope you will be joining me as you seek your own dreams and goals as well.

This last weekend of August will be one that will also have me thinking of those of you on the east coast as you brace for Hurricane Irene.  You will all be in my thoughts – stay safe and I look forward to talking after it has passed and all reports are positive.

A handful of the posts this week revolved around the theme of work as many of our schedules will be quickening in their pace and knowing how to balance the many aspects of our lives will determine our success and our level of sanity. Here’s a look back on the post from the past week on The Simply Luxurious Life:

*17 Reasons to Love Your Work

*Why Not . . . Treat Your Body Like a Temple?

*A Sound Work-Life Balance

*transitioning from summer to spring – Style Inspiration

*one of my favorite therapeutic meals after a long day – Risotto Primavera

*H&M Fall 2011 – have a look at the designs from the high fashion retailer with fabulously low prices

Well, with a weekend that will call for some writing to beat a deadline, finishing a book I can’t wait to review and share with you next week, and time to just savor, I hope you enjoy a wonderful two days that restores and rejuvenates you for the week ahead.  Thank you so much for stopping by The Simply Luxurious Life, and until Monday – bonjour!
