5 on Friday || Our Week

March Madness is officially upon us and up until I woke up this morning I had a perfect bracket - which is hilarious as I know NOTHING about college basketball. I'm definitely a sports gal, but college ball has never been my forte. I love when unexpected teams win, and I found myself screaming at the TV for Little Rock to win (yeah, I was home alone). Something about a little bracket competition, okay competition in general, makes me a little crazy.

This was a great week indeed, though. Not my normal, busy, rushed feeling at all. I made sure to actually get out and enjoy my lunch breaks (instead of editing photos) and that consisted of long walks at the park (bonus points for amazing weather) and making my planner beautiful again!

We're trying really hard to get with it in the health/exercise department like we used to, and making it a true lifestyle change, Allowing myself to have a clear schedule everyday after work this week (which was intentional) really helped make that start possible for us! My own personal goal this week was to get over 10K steps everyday and I can happily say I crushed that goal! One day I was over 17K! #proud
The one thing that really hit me this week was news that my sweet Nora was back in the hospital. If you remember back in January she was in the hospital with a lot of breathing complications. Well, it happened again. Poor girl was on oxygen for days, but of course, that strong little gal got better and was able to go home only a few days after. Look at that adorable smile! The world can be a scary place, with a lot of unknowns, but there are so many good things to stay focused on!
Linking up with Liz today!
I hope everyone had some highlights this week to celebrate! Wedding season is nearly in full swing (starting in April for us) but we happen to have a wedding to shoot tomorrow. I'm excited to shoot again, its been a while! Hoping the weather will get its act together and cooperate for a couple hours for photos!

 I also hope you have some fun plans for the weekend! Anything exciting on the agenda? Have fun!!
