candle-lit art journaling date with my eldest 

easing back into this online world.... i disconnected on friday, and took the weekend off. it was a much needed break from everything. as much as i love the amazing community i have online, sometimes all the extra noise can get overwhelming. a weekend without checking emails, fb, twitter, instagram, etc was bliss. we baked, we played, we crafted, we enjoyed a slow{er} pace of life for a few days. it gave my mind some peace and quiet, some time to mull things over, time to release some negative vibes, to shake off a few crazy feelings and time to regroup.

i plan on making it a more regular thing - either one day a week, or one whole weekend a month. i'm not setting it in stone, i'll take it week by week and see what feels right. 

hope that you all had a great weekend
