    my biggest tip to being a 'morning person' is waking up at the same time on the weekends too! that'll help set a consistent schedule! hannahwithacamera.com

    I'm working on waking up earlier as well. It's seriously so hard! I'm not a morning workout person, I really love midday workouts! I hope you have a great long weekend 🙂

    I totally what you mean about taking blog photos haha it gets less weird when the person isn't following… and it's easier to tell yourself other excuses xD

    I had to quit Junior League too, it was just too difficult trying to balance it out with my already busy schedule.

    I totally know what you mean about the feeling self absorbed being followed around by a camera. It just feels so awkward and it's like nooooo I'm not obsessed with myself, just have to get some pictures for my blog hahaha don't judge meeee!! I try to not think too much about it which is so much easier said than done. Alsoooo for the morning person thing, it took me a month or so to really get into the habit of it but I went from sleeping in until 11am every day to waking up around 7:30 without an alarm. I try to get in bed by 10 or 11pm and I didn't sleep with my phone near me for the first few weeks. Having to get out of bed when my alarm went off in the morning really helped and I made a rule for myself that I couldn't get back into bed once I got up.

    I always love being able to catch up with you on these posts! I can't imagine having to be in the office with no AC, the heat makes me feel a million times more terrible so I completely feel you there. I'm glad you took it though and put a positive spin on it though!KristinThe Blush Blonde
