Coffee Talk 04.28.19

Well, spring has sprung here in Philly for sure. The flowering trees are in full bloom, and the rest of our deciduous trees started putting out leaves this week. Our landscape is starting to fill in, and the grass is lush and green. Most mornings it’s comfortable enough to sit on the deck and enjoy my first cup of coffee. It’s been glorious.

It’s hard to believe that this time last year we were negotiating our current house and getting our home of 13 years ready to sell.

A lot has happened since then! We bought a new house and sold our old one, our oldest child graduated high school, we sent him off to college, he auditioned and scored a spot in his university’s marching band, and our youngest started middle school.

It’s definitely been a year of changes, but it’s all been good change.

It’s also been a year of change and growth for my business. I switched affiliate networks last June, and that was a big adjustment as well. It turned out to be a good business decision, but it’s had its own set of challenges.

I’m looking forward to the rest of 2019 and hoping it continues to be a much less eventful year than the last. Even good changes can wear on you after a while, ya know??? I can only do so much adjusting in my old age, ha!

In more current news, my vertigo seems to be gone, but I’m continuing with the testing my ENT wants me to do. I have the bloodwork scheduled for Tuesday and the MRI on Thursday. Needless to say, I’m not looking forward to either, and I can’t wait till this week is over. I hope it seems to pass as quickly as the last few have.

Also, I’m doing the GLO teeth whitening at my dentist’s office tomorrow, so I’ll let you know how that goes. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and I’m excited to see the results. I’ll take before and after pix.

I’ve also got a photo shoot on Wednesday and some fun brand collaborations coming up in the next couple of weeks. I’m open to post ideas too. I’ve been struggling a bit on that end, which is unlike me. I usually have more content ideas than I can develop without doubling up on posts.

So yeah, it’s another full week! It seems like all I do anymore is run from one appointment to the next. Hopefully I can get everything taken care of, and things will slow down for a while.

Well, that was all over the place, wasn’t it? And here I am, late getting out for my run yet again! I always think I have nothing to say when I sit down to write these posts, and then 30 minutes later I’m still typing.

I hope you all have a relaxing and blessed Sunday!
