This last weekend I had intended to get all kinds of home improvement and home decor projects started, worked on, finished and then share them with you bloggers. Oh boy, did I have BIG plans for some areas of our house. Buuuut, I don't know if you noticed I only got one little project completed this weekend (my painted sheet drapes). So I thought I would share with you where I've been (and an important realization I had).
I'm a "get-things-done/don't-have-time-for-to-sit" type of person. Although I think I'm pretty efficient with my time, I also ALWAYS have something going on and something I'm doing. I like life that way. :) But this last weekend I decided my cleaning could wait, my house projects could sit and my to-do list could stand still for a few days. I enjoyed my whole weekend spending time with my two fantastic sets of grandparents and having coffees and dinners with girlfriends. That's it. I traded in my projects and crafts for some quality time with my family and friends. What a great reminder it was to me that things can wait and how important the relationships with those I love are. I think it's important to sometimes let go of the to-do list and enjoy the company of family and friends.
That's my lesson of the week. :) Just kidding.
