I’m at the beach with my family this week. We always spend the summers at our beach house and this summer will be no different, but we aren’t quite ready to be here full time yet. There is unfinished business in Charlotte, but soon we will be here full time. For now it’s a quick trip for a little breather. We love to steal away in June before the summer crowds fills the beach. When July arrives, so does the crazy traffic & no hope of dinner reservations on our little island or quick trips to the fish market. June is a nice change of pace. It’s rather quiet down here during the week. It’s nice to have this gentle pause in our schedules. Do you take time to pause? Regroup? Breathe? I always find that I am more productive when I take time for myself. I like to have morning time before everyone wakes for devotion and reflection. I’ve also returned to my exercise routine which is giving me more energy. I been draggin my tired bones into the gym and after an hour, waltz out with a pep in my step. Amazing how that happens isn’t it? I’m still losing the battle of getting the television out of my living room. I like to keep the living room for conversation and music. Unfortunately my crew of men decided it need to be in the living room and out ruled me. Hopefully this summer, I will regain my media-less space. I currently planning my summer schedule. It’s all about doing those things that we all take for granted. It’s actually very hard to give ourselves permission to do these things. This summer I am giving myself permission! I will drink in the memories and live off them for years to come.
If you would like to follow me on Pinterest I will be posting Books I Plan to Read,
