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.

In the middle of Kaitlynn getting ready for school (she leaves for school before the other two kids since her school starts earlier and she likes to get there 20-25 minutes early), the electricity went out and was out for an hour.

I had to wait to run on the treadmill until after the electricity came back on. Gratefully, I was able to get in my run before I needed to leave for Discipleship Group.

My time at Discipleship Group every Wednesday is one of my favorite times every week.

I came home and made eggs for lunch and read for awhile until it was time to pick the kids up from school.

After school, Silas I left to got to the chiropractor and then on a special spontaneous date at Panera.

Slow Day: Week 5

This week’s Slow Day was a bit different than most since not only were Jesse and I flying back from NYC, but I was also sick with a head cold. So I did very little other than read and rest and travel back home — which I guess was the perfect way to spend a Slow Day! 😉

Gratefully, we had already pre-determined that we weren’t going to try to hit a lot of sites in NYC and that we were just going to enjoy being together. I may not have been the most romantic company since I mostly had tissues stuck up my nose and then couldn’t hear for a few hours because my ears were completely plugged up due to the air pressure (I tried every trick in the book and nothing really worked!), but we still were able to laugh about it and enjoy being together. 🙂

I didn’t end up making it into real clothes before school dropoff… it seems that’s been happening more often recently! At least I got my run in!

Mornings at our house…

Ready for Discipleship Group… I met a friend for a quick breakfast before we headed to church.

(My notes for a short talk I gave this week as part of the main session.)

Jesse picked me up from Discipleship Group and we drove to downtown Nashville for a date at ETCH (we had been given a gift card three years ago in exchange for a project I helped a friend with — we finally decided it was time to use it!)

My salad was delicious!

After school snacks… Kathrynne made a mask in one of her classes so she wore it home! 😉 Also, just to clarify, that is sparkling cider. And yes, the kids like to drink their drinks in unique glasses. We have plenty of normal cups and glasses, but they usually prefer “grown-up” glasses and I just let them go for it! 🙂

Kaitlynn always has a project she’s working on!

My current reads: Daddy Long Legs and Mom Set Free.

(It looks like I really need to clean the cover of my Discipleship Group curriculum — yikes!!)
