Back home! Just got in from three wonderful days spent up with my hubby staying at his hotel. Three days to just be. That's it, just be. I didn't have to take care of kids or stop the dog from barking or anything but what I wanted to do. I felt utterly indulged. Starbucks, shopping, pool, nap, dinner out.
It just felt so good to be still. I purposely didn't take my laptop or camera. Wouldn't have taken the cell phone except I felt if one of my kids broke a leg, I should know.
All this time makes me think of how little time I spend on being still and finding balance. It is so hard to do as women. We multi task even when we shouldn't be. I rarely give myself a break and it takes its toll. We become grumpier, tired and worn down. I know I need to, but the needs of everyone else always seem to come first.
I think I will do this more often as it has been years since I was away sans kids. Three to be exact. I have an almost three year old so that explains the three years.
To renew oneself is so important to our mental and physical being. I missed me. Ha-ha!
Anyway, let's move on. Came home to these lovelies.
The lettuce has popped up and is in need of thinning.
Purple and yellow. Need I say more.
Take time to just be!
