Yes, I’m back in the states after a lovely trip to Scandinavia. No, I was not prepared for the massive wave of humidity that greeted me at Newark Liberty Airport on Tuesday. However, I can’t really complain because 1) it’s not even peak humidity season (or so I hear) and 2) it’s much better than the bitter cold we had during the winter months.
The last few weeks have truly been consumed with birthday shenanigans, November Project, getting ready to travel, and ultimately traveling. There will be more on those travels shortly but I have to say – it’s fascinating what “unplugging” does to the mind and how active I am when I do travel versus sitting at my desk during the work week. I would like to think that I came back to work refreshed and ready to conquer anything that comes my way. I’m 99% sure that’s true. The 1% (or more just wishes that summer vacation was still a thing…) I’m also trying to figure out how to move more throughout the day since we had been walking 5-8 miles daily in Scandinavia and now I’m limited to my morning workouts and a bit of to/from water coolers. Good times.
But anyways, with the last Friday of the month upon us (how did May fly by so fast???), here’s a little bit of random and fun.
>> don’t mind me. just getting in some cardio in Tivoli’s hamster wheel 🙂 sort of like this hamster magnet I posted about a few weeks ago. always on the move <<

>> the lunch view when I decide to eat outside. it can be very easy to just sit around at my computer,
waiting for 5:30 pounding out projects, but I have realized that getting a least a 30 minute break provides just the right motivation to finish the afternoon strong <<
>> bareburger. a new favorite. especially when they have such scrumptious vegetarian options (when I need a break from meat) and fresh lemonade. not to mention their sweet potato fries = heavenly <<
>> one of the best.gifts.ever. a whale hat (love me some vineyard vines) and in the BEST color? why, I’m in love. <<
>> friday morning runs away from manhattan and into the piers of brooklyn. magical, right? <<
