The Friday Edit, Vol. 1


A weekly edit, by Dana.

First of all: THANK YOU for the sweet words about the rebrand. I was so freakin’ nervous when I first posted about it, and wasn’t sure about the reaction I would get. I figured there would be mixed feelings about leaving Pink Champagne Problems in 2017, and there were, but nothing short of amazing words of encouragement about the future. I’m really so excited and so motivated going into 2018! SO THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!

The Edit

I hope everyone rang in the new year exactly how they pictured it! I went to dinner with Matt, my sister, brother-in-law, and two other couples. Then, we went back to my sister’s house and our parents came over. It was a perfect night, and I couldn’t have pictured any other way to ring in the new year.

This week at work, we jumped right back in where we left off before the holidays. So, yeah, we were busy. It honestly never truly slows down at work, so I definitely treasured last week’s quietness. I knew it was going to take a while to get back into a routine, so I made sure to get at least two weeks of content for the blog ready to go.

And then the snow came. I was able to stay home yesterday as the commute was really dangerous. My office even closed at 2PM. Tonight, Matt and I are going up to Westchester for the weekend. I don’t want to do much of anything since it’s going to feel like -13 degrees in the city. A fireplace, wine, and a good movie sound perfect to me. Do you have any movie recs? Let me know!

What are your plans for the weekend?

  • Last night in my usual 6:30 @soulcycle class, @mantaszvinas said something that just stuck. He said, “Say your resolutions out loud.” And in that moment I realized something: I never said my resolution out loud to anyone. How am I supposed to be held accountable?
.
.
So in 2019, everything I do is going to have a purpose. Every blog post I publish, every Instagram post I curate, every email I send, every argument I make,  every thing I put in my body. WHATEVER. It’s all going to have a PURPOSE. Resolutions could be heavy weight that is constantly on your mind — but that’s not what I want this year to be. 2019 is going to be another year of growth, happiness, success, and yes, probably even failure. But damn, I’m ready for it🙌🏼
.

Your turn. Say your resolutions out loud. Let’s hold each other accountable👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
