Slow Day: Week 7

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 Saturday, 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!

I spoke at Discipleship Group on Wednesday morning about Family of Origin and Genograms. Here were some of my notes/my genogram poster board that I brought as an example. I had them set out the night before so I would remember to bring everything I needed to bring.

Kaitlynn and I have been leaving little notes to each other around the house. 🙂 I woke up to find this one on the mirror.

I love this man so much! Here he is helping make lunches for the kids before school.

We kept Valentine’s Day super simple this year — and we just bought Dollar Tree Valentine’s this year.

Silas made this beautiful Valentine for Jesse and I and gave it to us on Valentine’s morning.

I made Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins using this Banana Bread recipe.

It was a perfect evening snuggling and watching Olympic figure skating.

    You seem happier than I’ve seen you in all the years I’ve been reading. (Which is more than 10!)

    So many things to love from this post but in particular, I’d like to thank you for being positive about having a teenager. My mom has always said she loved the teenage years with me and yet so many parents have such awful things to say about the teen years. We’re almost there and so far I’m so thankful for these amazing kiddos and our relationship. Not perfect by any stretch but I look forward to continuing to be beside them/behind them as they continue to grow and mature. It’s nice to hear a mom say she’s enjoying the teen years. 🙂
