Besides teaching classes, taking classes, and presenting, as I mentioned, I have been trying to carve out time for Me Time without wallowing in self-pity about all of the things I "should" or "could" be doing (like TpT products). In my mind, summer is a time for regeneration. I just need some time to do nothing without feeling bad about it. Unfortunately, I rarely do nothing. I am usually doing something or a few somethings. I just try to pick something that I usually don't have time for... and I sleep in... which is in a way... doing nothing. This satisfies both ends for me. So, how have I been spending my Me Time?
I have been making lots of healthy meals. Summertime foods are my favorite. I am so obsessed with tomatoes and avocados. I like to eat mine with cottage cheese or fresh mozzarella. Yummo!
I had the chance to celebrate my friend Jenny's 30th birthday with work friends. It was fun... :)
I have also gotten to spend lots of time with my pups. They are just too sweet for words, even when they steal my beach towel. (This lady needs a little bit of sunshine before heading to Vegas, but I am getting a really late start.)
Lots of quality time has transpired with the mister too. I just LOVE having more time to spend with him during the summer. We just went to a co-worker's wedding over the weekend, and snapped a photo to commemorate it. :) He's a keeper!
I've spent some time reading too... which always makes me happy. This is a great quick read!
Lastly, as I have mentioned before, I love thrifting. I found this cute little bird planter and the little wooden toolbox, and I was smitten. :) Decorating is so much fun for me... especially with finds like this. Life is too short to be 100% serious all of the time, right?
So, what have you been up to? How have you been carving out a little Me Time? Link up below and share your summer with us! (Don't forget to snag the button as well!)
