a gift

I think the best gift someone could give me is a day of nothing on a weekend. A day with no plans and the option to think about what you want to do all day long. A day where you can take your son on an adventure hike and show him the sky, you can listen for birds and discover a pre-drawn hopscotch and teach him how to use it. I recently had a day like that on a Saturday. I noticed Mark and I talked more, we all had more fun and we got absolutely nothing done, not even swapping the laundry. 

Don't get me wrong, I love being busy, I love celebrations, I love all of it. I love seeing a full calendar and fitting in friends and family. 

But like I said, a day with nothing on a weekend is an amazing gift.

I totally and completely agree, I look at my calendar and it gives me anxiety we are so busy, I pray for those days!! Just think when our kids get older and they are in 5 differnt sports and HAVE to be here and there all the time!!

I totally agree! There's nothing more annoying than working all week and then having a weekend packed with events and things to do. Ack.
