What a lovely weekend. My husband and I found time to sneak away with some friends for a couple of days. It was the perfect summer weekend. We spent a little time at the beach/lake, went shopping, had lunch, and did a lot of lazing around, simply enjoying the company and the weather. I spent a good amount a time in the swing on the deck with my latest read..."The Velvet Chair" (The middle book of Jennifer Stevenson's new trio. If you like quirky, unique, and spicy, these are the books for you!).
Little gettaways like this are so important. The hustle and bustle of everyday life tends to wear us down, and it's so nice to be able to get away from it all. Whether it's getting in your car and heading to a specific destination or getting in the car, putting the top down, turning the radio up and driving where ever the road takes you. Whether it's sitting on the porch swing with your favorite someone or sitting in a rocking chair with a good book. Maybe it's simply a walk through your backyard garden to see what's blooming today or a walk around the block to touch base with the neighborhood and those in it.
Take a moment.
You'll be glad you did.
Until next time,
THIS TIME FOR ALWAYS
