Soak it in.


You may have noticed things have become a little more relaxed around here.  Yesterday I didn't write a post and last week there was also a day I missed posting.  It's not that I'm not still as committed to bloggging as I have been for the past almost year.  I've just realized the importance of slowing down and smelling the roses.  You know, what all the experts say you need to do in order to live a fulfilled life...

So, I've taken less time stressing about what to write and more time to walk the dogs.  I've spent less time cleaning house and more time laying by the pool.  Less worrying and more celebrating.

It's so important that we provide ourselves a break or a rest from the every day.  Everything about life is such a blessing and if we aren't careful, it's so easy to let it pass by without soaking it all in.  This summer I intend to soak it in.  I want to enjoy everything and truly live in the moment.

What are you currently soaking in?

  2. I'm so jealous that you're off for the summer! I have also taken a day off from blogging here and there.. I'm not a fan lately of trying to come up with something to write every.single.day. The blog won't go anywhere :)

  4. Sounds like a perfect way to spend the summer! When I get stressed about my blog I tell myself my only boss (for the blog, anyway) is ME!
    Enjoy your peace!

  5. Absolutely take time to soak everything in!! I used to be so paranoid about missing a day, and realized that my blog suffered when I was acting that way.
