I'm so excited to finally feel like things are back to normal, though I know it's going to get crazy again next week with what just might be my biggest wedding yet. I spent my weekend lounging around though, which was definitely needed. Sunday was spent in Santa Ynez, wine tasting for my best friend's bachelorette party. It was kind of amazing.
Words with Bloggers is back today (after a short hiatus), and I'm really excited to share this week's word with you!

What does the word "perfect" mean to you?
Perfect is a moving target. My 23-year-old self had one definition and my 28-year-old self has another. I've learned that perfection is relative--and that my best work isn't created when I'm tired. I've learned to give myself a 'pass' on perfection from time to time.
Why did you choose this word?
For most of my life, I've struggled with perfectionism. Nothing was ever good enough for me. This spring, someone close to me joked about this 'problem' of mine. While I was offended at first, they reassured me something I've never been confident enough to admit to myself: my version of perfect far exceeds most. This conversation helped to convince me that what I do is enough.
Thanks so much Alison for participating and sharing your word, and I hope you all have a beautiful week!
