We were walking through “the wine fields,” as Ian dubbed the vineyard we visited on Father’s Day weekend, when I really started composing this post in my head. I was fresh off a successful week of having prepared most of my meals at home (breakfast and lunch that I took to work with me plus dinner for the four of us at home) and was already mapping out a plan for a second week. The second week was one that I really needed to nail – I’ve taken on new responsibilities at work over the past couple months and wanted to take everything I’d learned in that time and really apply it with focus and intentionality. I had already proven to myself that I could do it under normal environmental conditions, but questioned whether I could pull it off in non-standard conditions.
That’s when I decided: It doesn’t have to be hard.
