    Time to Smell the Flowers

    I love having my kids home for the summer.

    Life seems to slow down a little while simultaneously gaining momentum in one big swoop that begins with a week of assemblies and school farewell activities.  All of the dynamics of the life you’ve adjusted to change instantly.  On one hand, there is more free time and much desired quality time with the kids but on the other hand, free time seems to disappear completely.  Everything seems to take longer and there are more things to do..

    So much of life as an adult is learning to balance the needs, wants, and loves of life.

    As the kids grow up and our careers advance, life gets busier and busier.  Time flies by and if you aren’t careful, you blink and summer is over.  You blink and your kids are grown up.   You blink and the people and things that used to keep you so busy don’t need so much of your time anymore.  

    It is not how you start in life or how you end up, I truly believe that the real treasures of life come from enjoying the journey, taking in the experiences, loving with your whole heart, stretching further than you think you can,  and creating a life that you feel blessed to be a part of.

    In trying to create this life and the perfect balance, between getting everything done and sharing quality time, we have tested a few new ideas in our home.
