The Friday Edit

Happy Friday, guys. It’s been a weird, long week, mostly because I’m still getting back to 100% after my health scare. I get really tired very easily, so life has been this weird mix of wishing I could do more, trying to do it, getting exhausted, feeling frustrated, napping, and then starting that cycle all over again. It sucks… especially when all I want to do is enjoy the Pacific Northwest autumn. Earlier this week I was able to go sailing and it was so damn wonderful. I loved feeling the crisp, salty air in my newly fixed lungs and being out and about, even if I was just sitting there. Each day is bringing me a little more activity and movement, so I need to focus on that and my healing.

Keep reading for my must-reads of the week, the best sales to shop, & a recap of anything you might have missed here on the blog!
