I had this week off work and it has been fantastic. The girls and I had a few short outings, but for the most part we were at home, and it was just what I needed to relax and recharge. I was quite literally running on fumes as I came into this vacation, and the down time has helped tremendously; I feel like myself again and am excited to feel my creative energy return.
Of course there were many reasons to smile this week, and here are some of the best:
Spending all week with my girls. It was just like the good-old-days before I went back to work full time, and I absolutely loved it. So many hugs and kisses, funny little quips, overhearing the conversations between the two of them, listening to them play, going for walks, hearing the latest installments of their Lego games, eating popsicles, swimming in the pool....it was simply the best.
