What is your perfect day? I can think of a lot of “perfect” days that involve my husband and kids, but by myself? Not so much. It’s been too long since I had a day alone to even remember what would make it perfect. As a wife and a mother, you rarely get time alone. I mean, like in 11 years! Oh, I get moments or even evenings or afternoons alone, but never full days. This weekend I had my alone day and I’ll confess it felt a little weird.
My husband had a friend in from out of the country, so he met up with him about 4 hours away and they took all the kids to a baseball game. Guess what that meant for me. I got to stay home. Yippy!! Yep, that truly hasn’t happened for me in over a decade.
I found myself thinking of my kids and also kind of feeling guilty, but oh how I enjoyed it! I decided to go all out and make it a day of favorites. Here’s what I did.
I started the morning with my favorite drink, coffee.Felt like a hipster riding downtown in my husband’s jeep with the top off.Did a little shopping at the local City Flea with a friend.Then my favorite lunch.Relax time with this little guy.And last but not least, one of my favorite movies and a cocktail.Can you guess the movie? Yes, guilty as charged.
Ah, this is the good life. But,… I did get excited when I saw those little faces and one big face walk through that door approximately 36 hours later.
What would you do on your favorite day?
To life feeling like home!
Sharing at THESE great parties!
