Girls’ Day In

4 Apr

Silliness is good for the soul.

My sisters, mom and I rediscovered this fact during our recent girls’ day in. Complete with tempura chicken wings and chocolate-oatmeal cookies, we pigged out, talked too much and watched sappy chick flicks. After eating more calories than should be legal, we also played a little bit of Just Dance – although I think we burned more calories laughing at each other. Sorry, but those pictures won’t be posted – hah!

To bring in the spring, we also took a mini photo shoot with a flower wreath we all helped make. And ironically, the pictures captured our different – yet strangely similar – personalities. Craziness runs in the family, just in case you haven’t already picked up on that.

Here’s wishing the weather will cooperate and get warm soon!

Until next time,

On the eve of the first day of spring, I am reminded to take time to enjoy the good things. Life is blooming around us, and everything is finally starting to smell alive.

After being way too busy for way too long, I’m trying to learn the art of rest. Of relaxation. Of setting time aside to simply indulge in doing nothing productive. After all, spring is a time of renewal – so taking time to improve and rest and gain strength only makes sense.

So, I grab my cup of chamomile tea and flip through my favorite cookbook and dream. Life is simply too short not to.

Until next time, Lovebyrd
