Recharging

The months leading up to summer are some of the busiest times for us, it seems.  We have something booked every evening (and most days) right now... which is both great and exhausting.  Johnny and I decided it was time to shrug responsibility a few nights ago, and just enjoy an evening to ourselves.  It was exactly what my little family needed to recharge.


We finished the evening by making fancy drinks and roasting marshmallows over the fire at home.


Sometimes you just need to step away from the rigid schedule and enjoy the things around you... and that's exactly what we did.  :)

  1. Oh my goodness, the photos of Poesy with the bats is by far the cutest thing I've seen all day. Glad to hear you and your family had a much-needed, relaxing evening out!
