spring break

March 19, 2013

So spring break came and went. I loved every single stinkin minute of it.

I did nothing.

Absolutely nothing and it was glorious.

I spent a lot of time walking sweet Bella. We went for at least an hour every day and I explored lots of new nooks and crannies in my neighborhood. It was fun. I tend to get so set in my routine that I forget to branch out. That goes for all aspects of my life. So just wandering around my neighborhood and winding up and down streets I had never been on before was a nice change of pace for me. I love to walk my dog. I don’t listen to music. I just walk. And think. And put my thoughts out into the Universe. It can be quite calming.  Plus who wouldn’t love walking this sweet girl? This is her, “I’m ready….” stance! ha!

The other cool thing I did was download this awesome app! It is called My Gratitude Journal. It was free and it lets you write every day things you are grateful for. I love it! I know I sometimes have a hard time slowing down enough to appreciate all the things {big and small, ordinary and amazing} that happen everyday. This is such a cool way to just take a minute everyday to note a few personal things that filled you with joy. I have started doing it every night before going to bed and it really does make me smile and ends my day on a positive note. 

I tried a few recipes but nothing noteworthy. Bummer. I was actually quite disappointed because I had such high hopes for a few of them. I did, however, eat at Whole Foods more than my wallet would have liked! Ha! I can’t help myself…when I actually get longer than 25 minutes for lunch without having to simultaneously make copies or grade papers…I take full advantage. I was in foodie heaven. 

Other than that and some major R&R it was a good week. A much needed {restful} week.

And this week….back to work. Oh, who am I kidding, I love those little faces! 🙂

    Ahhh spring break. The best kind is where you do nothing but walk your dog. (also, love that gratitude journal. Going to get that app now!)

    Sounds like a perfect break to me! I need that right about now. I like the idea of writing down things you are grateful for at the end of the day. I need to do that. It would make the more daunting things that happen in the day less of a focus for me.
