A bit of "ME" time

via Etsy
Since the man will be going back to his home state to visit his family for a couple of days, I am taking this week to focus more on "ME"....getting back to relaxing, trying something new for myself I would not typically get to with him at home, and stepping back from life to breathe! This is what I have been doing....

1. Take time to enjoy life, even the smaller parts. Taking time to "stop and smell the roses" is my focus. I cannot remember the last time I slowed down from the hustle and bustle to stop and enjoy the small things in life. And, to me, life is a whole lot of great little things.

-Thich Nhat Hanh

2. Try a minimalist approach. Why am I a clutter bug? I am not a big fan of having a mess, but I allow it to overwhelm me. Instead, it is time to clean up my home. Take out the mess and leave myself with a much more organized space.

Okay....well, that may be too minimalists, but you get the idea.

3. Make some of those DIY projects on my list. This is what I am most excited about. Crossing off things on my to-do bucket DIY list. I have so many projects I have wanted to do. Now, I have some down time to do them.
