31 Days - taking a break when you need it

This week I have spent a lot of time talking about saying no and saying yes.  I even took my own advice and made some time for knitting and reading this week, which was definitely much needed, and was incredibly rewarding.

In the background though, it has been an incredibly full week.  Between play dates and work obligations, to the homeschool co-op, field trips, and purchasing a new-to-us minivan (we joined the club, what can I say?!), I haven’t said a “no” enough.

In light of all of that, I am saying no to writing a long blog post today, and I am saying yes to spending some much needed time with my kids, playing and reading.

Today, please take some time to do something that you love, even if it means saying no to some other commitments.  Spend some time with your family, read a great novel (or even a mediocre one!) plan a game night with your family and make a big pot of vegetable soup to enjoy during the cool weekend ahead!

What are your plans for the weekend?


  1. Mmmm...soup. I think I may have to make some broccoli soup here soon, thank you for the reminder!
    Glad to hear you are taking your own advice and taking time for lovely things after such a busy week! :D

  2. You have been SO busy these days! I think you do deserve a break - that's all about Self Care too! knowing when to stop, slow down and enjoy that beautiful family! :)
