A happy Friday and Olympic Opening Ceremony day to all of my readers! Despite the upbeat and perky introduction to this post, I am tired today. After a long work week, Fridays can be pretty tough. However, they signify the beginning of the weekend which I am so looking forward to! Between the start of the Olympics with the opening ceremony and events, a full weekend of sunshine, and a great book to read, I’ve pretty much figured out the best way to re-energize before next week.
A beautiful, early morning view before heading off to work. While the clouds seem a bit dark, I can assure you that this is an early morning phenomenon and that it is currently bright and cloudless. I will say, though, that it rained for about 15 minutes the other day, and during that time, we all stood at the windows in shock. I kind of miss the rain that I became so accustomed to in Dublin – is that strange?
Yes, this is how we showed up to work today. Me in my 9/11 Memorial t-shirt, a red headband, and my American flag scarf. Matt in red/white/blue with an American flag that is currently hanging in his office. I’m telling you, we are extremely patriotic, so excited for the Olympics, and not afraid to share it with all of our European friends! Bring on the competition!
