I miss my family during that week, but it is good to have that alone time. It reconnects you with you. I reallly feel as though I am a better mom when I get back home!
I think I am in summer mode...feeling relaxed, even lazy! I needed this time to recharge. I had lost my way a bit this past year. There were so many transitions to make and it shut me down a bit. Steve has a way of pulling me back out when I am finally ready to talk about it. He really grounds me. The ying to my yang...
Of course, a layout to share that story:
Steve gave me some advice lately...told me to remember the big picture whenever things get crazy. It will help me approach that moment differently. My big picture is those guys...the most important things in the world.
I used the July kit from My Scrapbook Nook to make this layout!
It is a gorgeous kit!
It is a gorgeous day!
