Day 25: Simple Saturdays

Somehow I'm feeling the burn of 31 days this week, and today is no exception. But here I am, 8 pm on a Saturday, with no post. Normally this would bother me. My typical pattern in reaction to not good enough and not quite there is a feeling of defeat, and beating myself down before I give myself a chance to make it up.

But not today.

Today I chose sleeping in (7 am! Woo!), a pancake breakfast, and a swim lesson.

I chose a shopping trip with my sweet girl, and lazy lunch with all four of us around the table.

We chose barefoot runs on the sidewalk, peekaboo with leaves, and a cool fall breeze joining in on a girly pedicure.

We jumped into leaves, watched a spooky movie, and ate dinner on the floor. We forgot bedtimes. We just lived today. And it was so nice.

Deadlines are nice. And important. But sometimes, we just have to let go and see what incredible life we have going on around us.

Happy Saturday, friends!

xoxo, k.
