Week in Review

 
This week started off with a semi-impromptu coffee and scones breakfast date with my mom and sister. My family was out of town all last week for spring break and it felt like they were gone for forever. We spent the morning eating, chatting, and catching up. I love these ladies!
Monday night was the first Not For Sale Georgia book club! It was the first event that I helped organize with NFSGA so it was exciting that it went well. We read Rescuing Hope, a story of human trafficking in the U.S., and got together to discuss it with the author Susan Norris. It was really informative and jarring to hear of specific instances of trafficking in the Atlanta area, near places where I've worked and neighborhoods near where I live. I'm thankful that so much light is being shone on the issue of human trafficking and that I get to play even a small part in raising awareness about it.

A lot of job hunting also went on this week. Cover letters are currently my least favorite thing in the world. Anyone else feel similarly?
Lately, I've been spending a lot of time in the city. Watching Eddie play late night ultimate frisbee at Tech (what a babe), going to NFSGA events and meetings, and meeting up with friends. I got to have brunch with my sister-in-law and catch up with her. She's getting married this summer and will be moving away with her future hubby, so we need to spend as much time as we can with her before she's way up North!
I spent some unplanned time at my current favorite spot in Atlanta, Honey Bubble on Ponce. Got some Thai bubble tea, which I have somewhat of an obsession with, and started a new book.
Had tea time. Shocking, I know. This is my favorite blue and white cup of my Mum's.

Took advantage of the good weather and took some pictures of the flowers finally popping up. I'm so excited about the warm weather that's slowly creeping in!
Lastly, I spent some time in the kitchen and made a few new recipes. Homemade hummus, which has yet to be perfected, super tasty chicken veggie wraps, and strawberry nutella pastries. Some days just call for heart shaped desserts.
What were the highlights of your week?

  2. Those heart-shaped pastries are THE cutest! I love the idea of a week in review post...sometimes I feel like I can only blog in retrospect like this! I think this was the week I spent eagerly anticipating Spring Break, to answer your question!
