weekend post on wednesday

Typically I would share about my weekend on Monday. Maybe a Tuesday. But I decided to infuse some weekend into the middle of the week. Every day needs a little more weekend.

I've been working a lot on Renegade. I've mentioned that a lot -- or at least it feels like I mention it a lot on here -- but honestly, it's my life right now. This weekend, however, I decided I needed a short break so the husband and I headed up to Whidbey Island.

My mom redoes homes for a living. She buys nearly-condemned homes and refreshes them, updates the layout, the appliances, literally breathing new life into a home that no one else would live in. So when she said she was buying a little cabin-type house on Whidbey Island, I thought nothing of it. But this time around, she and my dad decided to keep the house, rather than sell it.

It's not beachront, but perches on a bluff and a trail leads down to the beach below. The house is modest and a bit outdated, but to me, it's perfect. It's another escape-- a place to breathe.

We just spent Sunday up there, but it was enough to get a little recharge before I hit the ground running Monday. I'm almost all prepared and the show is this weekend. As I continue to prepare everything, I'm holding onto the peace I felt this past Sunday to get me through the remainder of this week.
