Enjoying The Quiet

It’s been a very interesting thing – moving back home, and beginning my business all over again. Everything has taken much longer than i’d like – and i have felt frustrated. But finally, things are falling into place as they should, and the store will be reopening in 2 weeks. I’m so excited!

On the flip side – i know things will be crazy hectic once we reopen. It always is when i take a break. So this week, I”m having a holiday of sorts. I’m trying to take full advantage of the fact that i have nothing to do till stock arrives, and i’m resting. It feels like the first time in a very long time that i’ve just sat an existed. I’m kind of loving it.

We’ve been spending almost all our time in the backyard – me reading with my legs stretched out, and the kids playing. And today we spent the day at the zoo. It’s nice to feel so calm and content – especially since i will be running around like crazy in a week or so,

Till then, we breathe, and enjoy the quiet.
