In the justified busyness of life, I had nearly forgotten how much I enjoy...

...baking a cake.

...preparing for art, knowing how much my girls will enjoy it and how well it will ease them into the afternoon after a long day at school. (inspiration: Artful Parent)

...a vase of fresh flowers.

Most days,
I don't bake, because we try to limit sweets in the house and subvert our voracious sweet teeth.
We don't maintain regular art time like we used to, because there is always something else.
I don't buy fresh flowers, because they are relatively expensive.

But today, I am remembering how very much I enjoy these things and how maybe I need to knock those justifications out the window every once in a while.

Wishing you a happy Monday!

  1. My beloved grandfather taught me that we must feed not only our minds and bodies but also our souls and making the time and effort to do just that always pays dividends.

    Enjoy those cakes, flowers and works of art.
