This past week has been our Spring Break and we have LOVED it! We have had a chill week and enjoyed being together and enjoyed the "slow pace" mode...which is usually non-existent in our house.
Earlier today we took the kids to our Museum of Science and History. We love going to this. Justin and I enjoy reading up on the history of our city... and Maddie and Macaiden enjoy the little things... like the animals and hands-on activities.
I am grateful to have one of my Nanny's diaries. I enjoy reading it every once and a while...it is still VERY difficult for me to think about Nanny at times...just because... I have an image that is hard for me to get out of my head, but I try so hard to cherish those special memories and hold them close to my heart.
Justin and I then began to have the discussion about what we would do if we won the lottery....seems far fetched I know...but hey...we like to dream. I honestly would not want my life to change dramatically.
Our life is SO busy. The MAIN thing I would want to change...if I ever won the lottery would be to SLOW DOWN. I am realizing that the only reason our life goes by so fast is because we are so busy. I am constantly looking ahead and thinking... what is next on my calendar for work or for the kids? When did life get so busy that we put work, priorities, and other obligations before our family...or even ourselves?
This past Spring Break week...if it is at all possible to believe has been "slow." We have had no agenda and it has been amazing. We have made it a point to do things together and make time for each other without the hustle and bustle of priorities, deadlines, or things that get in the way of being a family.
I told Justin today...people do not just take drives anymore. We drive ourselves to work, to the grocery store, to soccer practice, and so much more....who wants to drive just to drive? I do. If I had time, I would drive. I would drive with the top down, the wind blowing in my face, listen to my favorite tunes, and just be. People used to do this... before they were "too busy."
Your home address is something that should be important to YOU. I LOVE LOVE having people over. I love creating memories with family and friends. I love to create memories at MY home. This past week has been a week where my house number has meant a lot. I was able to sit out on MY front porch, drink coffee, and watch my kids play. The hustle and bustle of life stopped this week. My address meant something more than a place I just sleep...it was a place of memories and a place to rest.
My Repurpose for today : Remember that my house number is not just a place of dwelling but a place of memory making.
I am an everyday mom who likes everyday things. I love taking everyday items and giving them a repurpose. Our number one seller is our candles!
