Sometimes you need the solitude

Sunday morning coffee

Sitting on the porch

Listening to the birds chirping

The gentle breeze swaying the trees

After the week I have had

This is exactly what I need.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

If only I could keep this feeling.

Not to be dramatic

I recently had a close friend of mine leave our workplace. We planned for multiple get togethers and we just knew that we would text each other just as much as we had been.

The first week goes by and we spoke every dang day. Then as the weeks went on it sure became faurther apart that we sent each other cute memes or updates.

It is now a few months since she left and we barely speak.

Adult friendships are hard.

Just a little slice

The porch swing sways gently.

The birds are quiet except the occasion chirp.

The outdoor animal’s have scurried to find cover.

The trees are swaying with the breeze.

The sound of the rain hitting the earth soothes my soul

Almost more then the precious coffee in my thermos.

So here I am

Rocking back and forth on the swing

light blanket covering my lap

reading my newest self help book

I think I may have found a slice of heaven.

 

Little things

Anyone else get lost watching disney/pixar movies with their kids?

No? Just me?

Thats ok too.

I’ll be here, coloring in my adult try not to swear coloring book with my kids who have disney and superhero books for themself.

Did I mention we are in a self made fort?

Challenge accepted

As we get closer to Valentines day I want everyone to challenge themselves to spice up the monotony.

Every relationship starts out with butterflies and heart jumps, but you will always get to the stage where its (dare I say it?) boring.

Spice it up.

Dont settle.

Life is meant to be lived with smiles and laughter. With love and soft touches. With spontaneity and a sense of adventure.

You are only as old as you let yourself act.
