I can’t believe this is the last Wednesday Wishlist of February. This winter is absolutely flying by. (Thank God! Is it spring yet?) I’ve slowly been adding versatile early-spring pieces to my wardrobe. I can’t wait for the polka dot jumpsuit (pictured below) to arrive in the mail. I am going to pair it with a denim jacket and sneakers for school or dress it up with wedges to wear out. It’s on sale for under $60 this week. I’m also very excited to try these scalloped hem cropped pants. I ordered them in navy blue. I can’t wait for warmer weather and to be able to wear them with a lightweight polka dot sweater.
A bit of an aside- people have been asking me lately how I find time to manage a blog while I’m teaching full-time, planning a wedding, and trying my hardest to be a good fiancé and friend to my loved ones. On school days, I don’t touch social media between the hours of 7:45am-3:00pm. That is one of the beauties of teaching- it gets my undivided attention. My key to managing the blog is twofold- First, I’m a big planner. I plan most of my blog-content on Sunday afternoon. Many of my posts are set to auto-post on my blog and social media platforms.
Then, there is reality. There are weeks like this week. It’s 9:21pm, and I literally just walked in the door after school, tutoring, a workout, and a tennis event for Ben. As exhausted as I am, I find it relaxing to sit down with a glass of kombucha (or maybe wine) and write a blog post. I’m blessed at this point in my life to be able to find 30 minutes to myself to do something I enjoy. The reality is, there might be days where I can’t get something done for TwentyFivePlusFive. (Ahem, editing my typos from yesterday’s post) And that’s okay. It’s okay, because of you all who read my posts. You are such a kick-butt positive and kind group of people. So thank you for reading, following, and understanding when I don’t write back on a DM until after school. It means the world to me.
