Here at Abbott Lane you'll find my thoughts on these topics and much more. Thanks for stopping by to visit!

Week in Review: 8.15.21

Hi friends! How was your week? Mine was quiet and lovely. I did a lot of things I enjoy - read a lot, worked on a personal project that felt really satisfying, and even took Octavia out for a spin (to the library, of course!) I realize that I'm happiest when I have a week like this, where there's a nice balance between working and relaxing and trying new things.

Hope you have a fantastic week!
