We escaped to the Cities for a long weekend with the kids and it was great to get away and spend quality time as a family without the distractions of home. I was again reminded that my life is very blessed.
Upon returning home from our long weekend, the sun and warm weather FINALLY returned to the northwoods. I don’t know if it was the sun or vitamin D pulsing through my veins but I had quite possibly the best week ever.
The week started with a fabulously relaxing yoga session and ran into an old derby friend, I then went grocery shopping where I spent $120 for a weeks worth of groceries due to some killer coupons. SCORE!!
Tuesday was the most perfect day EVER, I woke up and rode the kids to school on their bikes, ran into 2 more friends and caught up, I did 5 loads of laundry and hung them out on the line (heaven!!), cleaned the house, prepped dinner, rode back and picked up the kids from school, we stopped over for them to play at a park, then back home for snack, a little outdoor playtime, dinner, a family game of Scrabble and then a walk in the woods with a dear friend. I seriously could have died in my sleep that night and have been content.
Yesterday continued to be a great day. Bike ride, pilates, dinner with friends and an amazing concert by Actual Wolf and Trampled by Turtles.
I can’t believe how different my life is right now from a year ago, but its like I am living the life I am supposed to be.
All I have to say, Life is Good.
