mid-week round-up

fire-escape-street

Welcome to 2017, my friends! Gah! How futuristic does THAT sound? I hope you’re all doing well and settling into the new year with ease. Did you make any resolutions? Set any new intentions? I’d like to develop some new organizational systems (paperwork, computer files, my planner…all these Christmas decorations that need to come down eventually, lol) and decrease time spent in front of screens. I’m also kick-starting my year with daily yoga videos from Adriene. (LOVE her January challenges!) Now, if reading more random internet articles was a resolution of yours, I’ve got ya covered… But you can feel free to click through even if it wasn’t…

One thought on “mid-week round-up

  1. The article about the restaurant bubble concerns me. Richmond has such a thriving restaurant scene but I totally get what they’re saying…there are so many new places that pop up and not enough diners with spending money to support them all. When one trendy place pops up so do three more just like it. Kills me, because the foodie scene here is one of the best things about Richmond…let’s just see how well it can survive.
