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. Enjoy a little peek into our lives!

My Slow Day morning started out with helping the kids get their breakfast and get out the door.
We loved these Sourdough Pancakes and ended up eating them for dinner, snack, and breakfast!
I worked out and cleaned up the house a little and then got ready to leave to go to Discipleship Group. I had been asked to speak for the large group session this morning and I spoke about Esther and Grace in Your Story. (I wrote a little more about what I shared about here.)
After Discipleship Group, Jesse and I went out on a lunch date to Gray’s — one of our favorite places. (Jesse’s family had given me a gift card to there for my birthday.)
The Roasted Brussels at Grays are amazing…
As was my salad…
And the Banana Pudding. (Did I mention that I love this restaurant?!)
Jesse and I headed to my travel health appointment to get things taken care of for our November trip to India (yes, I don’t think I’ve told you all but Jesse and I are headed to India with some really good friends of ours next week — long story, but we’re super excited about it! We’re also going to Rome for a day and a half on the way there!)
We then went to vote because we’ll be out of country on Election Day. I was so happy to see so many people at the polls for early voting!
Yay for ability and freedom to exercise our right to vote!
We then picked the kids up from school and spent the rest of the day hanging out together. It was such a good day!
