Today began as a day to consist of actual scheduled events, oh how quickly that changed. I woke up at 7 to prepare for a photoshoot scheduled for noon but the photographer canceled due to illness. No biggie, ish happens. So with a full face of makeup and a full cup of coffee I sat down to catch the morning news and was bombarded with apocalyptic Al Roker weather updates.

Those bits of cheer coupled with the branches banging on the roof and windows quickly made me rethink my afternoon plans to drive solo dolo to Charlotte. Just like that, a day that was to be go go from 7am to midnight in another state turned into me plopped on my mom’s couch in pajamas and an ass load of makeup. Now it’s almost midnight and I’m reflecting on what would look like a complete unproductive day. But I’ve decided to flip my perspective and instead of focusing on what didn’t get checked off of my to do list, I’m going to make a “done list”. Even if I didn’t plan on getting these things done today, they’re still done.
1. Nap a lot. Check.
2. Feed brain via Netflix between naps. Check.
I watched all of these documentaries today. No lie…
