Intentions for the Week:

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Happy Monday everyone! I spent most of Saturday introverting/organizing my desk. Sunday was spent with friends and catching up on work.  It feels good to have a RESET to my work space. New systems of organization make me happy. It was so cluttered before and I had the hardest time focusing. If you’re feeling uninspired, try cleaning your desk. It will set the tone for your day.  Also, make your bed. Always.

If you have today off from work (here in America it’s Labor day!), try to take the time to recharge your battery. Perhaps you can make a list of intentions for this week?

Should we start a hashtag on instagram? #intentionsfortheweek How does that sound?

    I am going to make your coconut curried rice this week also! It is one of our favorites and on regular rotation here. You should write a cookbook. We tried your basil beef last week as well and it will also be a regular. I don’t often try new recipes, and when I do, I usually don’t put it on repeat, except for your recipes are always my favorite. Thank you!
