Lately on Instagram: May 19, 2016

filed under:

Life always picks up in the spring! I’ve been super busy but I wouldn’t have it any other way. My week has been swamped but I’ve been really productive at work, I’ve caught up on some behind the scenes R&R work, and worked out everyday this week (the latter is a huge accomplishment!). I also had time to help Edwin recover from the flu, ouch! There is a major light at the end of my tunnel… my school year of teaching is coming to a end. I have 4 short weeks until summer break!! In the meantime, here’s a glimpse of my life lately on Instagram.
