Usually come Monday I hit the ground at a full 100mph and don't stop till the weekend. It can be fun, I get a lot done, but often times half way into the week I start getting a tad snippy.
Last night Bill came home from work, took one look at my face and suggested we eat dinner out. I do love my man! By the time we got home and tucked the kids into bed it was 7:45 and guess what? We went to bed too! Im not joking, I slept from 7:45pm to 7:15am! Whoa, I don't remember the last time I got that much sleep.
I woke up refreshed and inspired to make my Wednesdays a day to refocus, refresh, and in short be kind to myself and my family. The plan; stay home, read and pray, be peaceful, play with my children, drink coffee, paint my nails, do a little craft with the boys. What it wont be; scheduled play dates, endless errands, and anything else that makes me feel rushed or like I have to check a list. Hopefully this will help me move through our week with a little more grace and kindness :)
So on the blog on Wednesdays I'll share some things I'm loving, links I adore, maybe a quote or two. Anything that is reminding me to be kind to myself and family. Make sense? Hope so!
Here we go!
|I'm loving this coffee right now. Donut Shop Coconut Mocha. It's especially good iced :)|
|During quite time I might work on the next blog giveaway because the colors make me so happy :) And because I really love ya'll!|
|This is on my toes right now. Mojito Madness. Love love love it. And you can thank me for not taking a picture of my feet. You're welcome :)|
|I've got the supplies so I think this is what me might do before lunch in the backyard. Here's the link.|
Be kind to yourself today, to those around you. Don't we all deserve that? Love ya!
