I love blissfully relaxing weekends. I don’t always get them, but I do love them. This past weekend was one such weekend.
The picture above is the view taken from the little cabin my husband and I just stayed in. Fresh air, a hot tub, and a porch swing. It doesn’t get much better than that. Actually it does . . . I got to sleep in as late as I wanted two mornings in a row. If you are a parent of a toddler you know how glorious that is!
As I sat gazing at the mountain top scenery I wondered why we couldn’t have more enjoyable weekends like this. The answer hit me almost as soon as the question came. Times like this don’t just happen on their own . . . we have to MAKE them happen.
Our to do list will never be “done” because there’s always more work to do. Weekends won’t wait. We just need to schedule the family fun now and make it top priority.
For the rest of our trip, Shawn and I began making plans for more family adventures this fall. We planned camping trips, bike rides, a weekend at a pumpkin festival, and much more. It was so exciting! I can’t wait to share it all with our children.
I want to take a moment and thank everyone who took advantage of my blog anniversary book sale last week. It was an awesome week for book sales! Because of my book sales and selling some stuff on ebay, our weekend in the woods was completely paid for. That’s a great feeling. Beyond that, it was because of the chance to get away that we had some quiet moments to plan an awesome fall for our family. So thank you for your support. It means a lot to me.
What are your fall plans? I always love hearing new ideas. If you don’t have any plans yet, I’d encourage you to take some time and plan some today. You won’t regret it!
