We all know how busy our lives can be. And, truth be told, we all know that we may not put ourselves at the front of the line as well as we should when things get wild. Whether I am on a hard, fast deadline or trying to finish a project to spend more time with the family, we all know time can escape us when when trying my hardest to powering through.

Every day, I wake up energized, excited, and ready to take on the day. Between waking up early with baby Claire and making sure Charlie wakes up in time to get ready and off to school, mornings can start out a little hectic at our house, but I know I can rally through.

From there, I dive in behind the scenes at Best Friends For Frosting, with every day proving to be a different adventure.  I normally spend my time balancing styling and curating, photo shoots, business meetings and phone calls, and time spent in my office.

I made a resolution a while back to work to find balance for myself as a role model for my kids. I devote part of my day to some form of exercise, whether it’s going to the gym for a little while or walking to take Claire and Charlie to the park, which has become one of our favorite family activities! I’m always sure to devote at least a small part of the day to taking care of myself and celebrating joy, helping me to avoid burning out.

Some days, Andy takes the kids for the entire day while I’m working on an important project deadline.  I don’t like to do that often but truth be told, it happens.   It gives me the opportunity to focus on the project at hand and to give it my all. But as we know, deadlines can sneak up on us sometimes at the most unexpected of times.

 

When I find myself about to experience my afternoon slump, sometimes I even pull a ZonePerfect® Nutrition Bar out of my desk.  It’s the perfect snack to keep on hand for when I need to get through a hectic day and comes in a ton of different flavors. And when those flavors include options like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, I get excited about having such a delicious snack. Sticking with that plan has helped me so much in powering through before a deadline comes up. Having an energizing snack helps me to finish out a task with a bang and to finish up the work day, allowing me to focus on what’s important next – heading home to make a meal and have dinner with my family!
