Spring Feelings


Happy first day of Spring! What were you most excited to do today? I was ready to embrace today without my scarf and the weight of a million layers. So I did! And immediately, Mother Nature reminded me that she is one bad-ass lady who needs to be taken seriously. So here I am avoiding the cold with a warm cup of matcha from Cha Cha Matcha.

Post-Weekend Thoughts:

Over the weekend, I had the apartment to myself. My husband was away on a work trip so I was home with my cat, Esteban. He’s always featured on my Instagram stories. Curious? Follow me @ Sophiewithablog. With all this time, I came to a few realizations:

1) It was exciting to do something off of my “I am intimidated to do this, but I must try it someday” list.  I attempted to poach an egg (not exactly the most thrilling thing but still something intimidating). Though it didn’t come out perfect, doing it took away the intimidating factor. So here’s to a lot of practice.

2) I use my phone too much. I had to keep a book by my side to remind myself that there are other things I can do with my time besides scrolling through Instagram all day long. I am currently reading Sister Outsider by Audre Lorde (thanks, Kim!).


3) I eat my food as if someone is trying to take it from me. Still working on this one…

4) Golden Girls is a timeless show and will make me laugh when I need it. You can watch it on Hulu.

5) Listen to more podcasts. I love Sooo Many White Guys with Phoebe Robinson and 2 Dope Queens (thanks again, Kim!), also with Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams.

Back to today…Then I finally decided that it was worth risking my life to stand in the middle of the street without my coat on. Thankfully, my wonderful best friend worked her Iphone 7Plus magic (not an ad, just really impressed) and spared me my life (thanks, MJ). *Also, note the contrast of the appropriately dressed man staying warm…



Peace out, Monday!
