Sometimes we just need to do this, not only for ourselves but for our family too.
This weekend I decided to go unplugged and soak up the time I had with my boys and husband.
We splashed in the pool, went strawberry and cherry picking, did some shopping, attended a few BBQs and snuggled on the couch.
I feel more present when I’m not thinking about work, posts I need to write or tweets I need to respond to.
I giggle more.
Laugh a lot.
And cross more off my list.
This is when small memories are created.
They bounced from bush to bush picking cherries and strawberries.
Their faces would light up when they picked that “perfect” piece of fruit.
My three-year-old skipped over to me, wrapped his arms around my legs and said, “Mom I love you”, then happily skipped back to pick more fruit.
I would often see my six-year-old give me a sweet little smile the kind that makes you feel alive inside.
They were happy, I was happy and we were all living in the moment.
Every once in awhile we need to take a step back and unplug.
To enjoy what we have right in front of us.
Tell me, when was the last time you lived in the moment?
