Friday I’m In Love

Rainy day in Rochester

A familiar sight as of late

This week flew right on by. And then, I woke up today and thought it was Saturday. Womp womp. Total buzzkill. But, on the bright side, only a few short hours until the weekend! And, bonus, it’s Cinco de Mayo. Bring on the margaritas!

This week, I wrote about burnout. Here’s an interesting perspective on burnout being a result of not doing enough of what you love.

Along the same lines, and for all my blogger pals out there, I’m sure this post by The Fresh Exchange will hit home.

I adore this fun video from Billy and Pat, touring the Buffalo public art scene.

The 25th annual AIDS Walk Buffalo is happening tomorrow morning at Delaware Park. This post in support of the AIDS Walk, by my friend Scott from In a DC Minute, really stuck with me this week. HIV and AIDS affect thousands in Western New York—your neighbors, friends, and family.

Through my series Run the World, you’ve read about how inspired I am by women in business. Check out this interview with Buffalo-based fashion designer, my friend Nkay, on LadyBossBlogger. 

Speaking of fashion – while I could never pull them off, I am obsessed with these Spring boots worn flawlessly by Sushmitha from Miss Minus Sized. (Ok, one more from Sushmitha because, I mean, this cactus garden, WHAT?! Is that even real life? GORGEOUS.)

I guess I’m extra inspired by my Buffalo fashion lovers this week; here’s another one! I’ve never been a fan of off-the-shoulder looks, but Lucy from Write. Style. Travel. has changed my mind. I especially love this look!

Whatever your weekend brings (even if it involves a little snow…sigh), I hope it treats you well! Cheers!
