Welcome to my weekly Slow Day post, inspired by Monica from The Homespun Heart. My Word for 2018 is Slow and, in the spirit of that word, I’m taking one day each week (Wednesday) off — I’ll be unplugged and offline and plan to move at a slower pace, take time to do things that refresh me, and just really focus on being present and savoring the moment.
Each week, I’ll be sharing a photographic peek into my Slow Day — and I’ll let the pictures almost 100% speak for themselves, instead of giving many explanations. Enjoy a little peek into our lives!

The perfect way to start a Slow Day! I finished this book and really loved it!
I picked up my FREE photo at Walgreens.
I started this book and am anxious to see what I think of it!
After we picked the girls up from school (Silas is already out of school for the summer), we went shopping for furniture for our library.
The girls had a blast dreaming of ideas for Kathrynne’s room (she still hasn’t picked out furniture — she just has a mattress and a dresser. I told her she had to make this a priority as soon as she gets done with school for the summer at the end of this week.)
We didn’t find what we were looking for at the first store, so we headed to another store.
The kids LOVED the kid’s section of Rooms to Go.
We decided to go with this chair and a half for the library — we wanted something that wouldn’t take up a ton of space but that would be super comfortable and could seat two kids curled up. We also wanted something that was simple and would match the rest of our house decor. I have a feeling that all of us will spend many hours curled up in this chair with a good book!
We ended up taking way more time furniture shopping than we expected, so we decide to bump our dinner plans for the night and use our one Dinner Out night. I was having a friend over and wanted to get a few cleaning projects done before she came, so Jesse dropped me off at our house and then he took the kids out to Sonic.
