Hi lovelies! I hope you are enjoying this summer that is just breezing right by! It’s already August!!
So many good things have been happening, we are 100% moved in to our new house. We had several weeks overlap where we were moving stuff out of our rental slowly. I really don’t understand how we accumulated SO much stuff in the few years of being married! It was a great time to re evaluate what we use and what we don’t. It feels amazing to simplify. Although I will never be a minimalist, I do like to feel organized!
As we have been settling in I have (once again) been non intentionally taking a pause from social media and blogging.
Its hard guys…keeping everything balanced. I have been thinking a lot (maybe the move has spurred that on) about EVERYTHING as well as doing a million things everyday. Keeping house, unpacking, cleaning out the rental, and all the newfound responsibilities of living somewhere on 4 acres vs. a rental where they take care of the yard for you.
It’s been busy to say the least. And I’ve been feeling a tad burnt out of being “busy”. So whenever I have a day where I don’t have errands to run I completely relax and slow down my life.
As an introvert, I have found it so essential to my well being to take the time to relax and do nothing several times throughout the week. Sometimes it’s fun to be on the go, go, go, but I know if I do that too long I’ll be dead on my feet! I think as a wife & mama it can feel like we should be constantly doing something. I get it. The cooking, cleaning, and everyday living that just keeps us refilling our coffee cup.
But I just wanted to say, I think it’s ok to be a homebody and to lounge with your babies and take it easy. Life is going by fast, even faster when we don’t slow down enough to realize it.
Since moving to the country I have found a peace from simply being home and being together. I don’t think that’s something to take for granted. Cherishing the moments and making fun in our own backyard. I want this last part of summer to be filled with long love filled days. When things get too fast I’ll remember to slow down again.
Take a moment (or few) mamas, I don’t think you’ll regret it.
