On Wednesday I decided to forget about the basket of clean laundry hiding in my closet for the past four days as well as all the other unattended things in my house. Even though I am a homemaker above everything else I do, we homemakers are allowed to take off days too or at least make our own version of happy hour! After my son weans I am investing in a flask for my nature walks. Y’all think I’m playing! 🙂
October was a busy month for my Etsy shop. On top of that my husband was out-of-state and I was incredibly busy driving my oldest two kiddos to-and-fro and taking care of the littlest one. I hardly got a moment to sit and breathe and just take in my surroundings. And even though part of me feels invigorated by October’s sales and I literally want to stay up all night making things, I also feel the need to slow down—especially since I’m still not sleeping through the night cause my son is still a mega-nurser. I’m deciding to listen to my body when it says to take it easy and savor life. It’s meant to be enjoyed, admired, made love to ❤
So how could I choose laundry over the sight of these vibrant colors and the musky smell of damp, fallen leaves? I love, love, love trees more than I’ve ever loved a beach. Maybe I was an owl in my past life. Or a monkey. (Yeah, owl sounds better.) Anyway, my backyard is literally a state park so I decided to take a hike with my son. I’ve adopted it as our own little happy hour.
Enjoy the pics!
What is your own version of happy hour?
