Lazy Days of Summer

I have to confess, we have been home from vacation since Monday, and it's taken me all week to get back on track. I haven't felt like doing much of anything, to be honest. I finally got everything unpacked and washed, the house cleaned, and caught up on sleep. That drive home was brutal! I have never been so happy to get home. Not that our trip wasn't fantastic, it was just that we decided to drive through the night, so Grey could sleep, but for some reason we were both so tired this time.

It's been exactly two weeks since I have posted anything, and if I can be honest, it took all my energy to get this post done for today. Part of me felt guilty, but another part said, who cares. Sometimes you just need to rest and do nothing. Do you ever feel like that? Believe me, it's hard for me to just sit back and relax, without feeling like I accomplished at least something everyday, but I am learning that it's ok. Most things in life can wait! The world is not going to come to an end because you didn't finish cleaning, or because you didn't get that post done today. I am learning that it is just as important to rest, relax, and enjoy doing nothing, as it is to be extremely busy and productive!

We had an amazing time in Maine. We did do a lot of fun stuff, but we also did a lot of relaxing and it was fun to just sit on the porch and laugh without worrying about what had to be done! It was so peaceful and quiet there. I loved every second!! I've shared some of my favorite photos so that you can imagine yourself there! Close your eyes and take a five minute mini vacation!

Over the next few weeks I plan to post parts 3 and 4 of Creating Your Nest. You can read parts 1 and 2 by following the links below. I also plan to do another Favorite People post. Last month's post was on my favorite bloggers. You can read that post too by following the link below. I plan to take a week or two off from posting in the beginning of September, because that's when I will be starting back to work and my little boy will be starting Pre-School for the first time. 

Finally, be sure to follow along for the rest of August in my prayer challenge. You can download the calendar and read all about it here >> August Prayer Challenge

I don't know what the rest of your Summer looks like, maybe you are off like me, or maybe you aren't. Either way, make sure you take time to rest and relax! And don't feel bad about it, your body (and family and friends) will thank you!

Many Blessings,
