Life can get so busy so fast, especially on the weekends. Sometimes by Sunday night, we're more exhausted than we were on Friday, when the weekend began. We fill our time with all the things we want and need to do. For us, the one time during our oftentimes crazy weekend that is meant for us to slow down is Sunday mornings. It's almost a sacred part of our weekend. We never make plans, we don't go anywhere (except to the bakery for muffins), we just enjoy being together as a family. We try to take it slow, doing things that we enjoy and that are relaxing. The boys play outside as Eric and I sit on the porch. He works on his fantasy football team as I catch up on Pinterest, we talk about the week ahead, and just soak up not having an agenda.
These few short hours we take for ourselves each Sunday morning give us a boost to start the week off right. It's something that we truly cherish.
