Slow Weekends

My Favorite Light
Nate and I have been go, go, go the past couple of weeks. Last Sunday was kind of a slow day and it felt just right after a long day of tailgating with friends. Nate got up and did his normal ridiculously early things and I slept in. He came back to “take a nap” though, and we stayed in our dimly lit room well into the afternoon. Is there anything better than taking some time to just roll around in and out of consciousness with your favorite person in the middle of the day? No. No there isn’t. This past week went by fairly quickly and I found myself waking up to another weekend today. Saturday started early for me. I was up at 9AM for aerial classes and home by noon. When I pulled into the driveway today I marveled at my pretty little front porch. I bought gorgeous golden colored mums last night and put them in my hanging baskets. I hung up my tiny little fall wreath this evening and sat outside for a while in the crisp air. Fall has officially moved in and I feel like these photos are the last bits of summer.

I’ve been trying to step back and make time for everything important. Truly important. I see so many people sleepwalking through their daily routines, not making time for anything but their worries. Y’all stop it, okay? Make a conscious choice to call up someone who’d be surprised to hear from you, to go run around outside with your camera, to take a class, to twirl around in a pretty dress, to figure out how to make better iced coffee at home than you can get at a coffee shop, to cook and eat delicious meals every night a couple of times a week, to make at least ONE of those DIY’s you’ve pinned on Pinterest… I’m talking to myself, too. Fill every minute that you are awake with something good, something that makes you feel alive. But then give yourself a little break if you never get to those Pinterest pins, because we’re never going to have time to make all of that shit, are we?

Tonight we are at home – hanging out, watching football, doing yoga, having a few beers, relaxing. I’m enjoying the simplicity of it because I know the next few weekends will be filled with weddings and trips out of town. Lots of things to look forward to but lots of time spent on the move! Have a great weekend friends!

PS: I’m thinking of using my Tumblr a bit more again. Do you have a Tumblr? Leave your link in the comments!

    You caught me. I definitely sleepwalk through my daily routine and drown in my worries quite a lot. I'm sort of in a life rut but hopefully things will change soon. I love that you talked about hanging in bed in the middle of the day with someone you love. I miss doing that! It's on the to-do list once we move in together – again.
    Anyway, you look super pretty here and these pictures turned out great! Your hair is gorgeous!
