Today my mom pulled into our driveway with her car full of memories.
She spent all day yesterday digging through the attic of my childhood home where my grandpa now lives in search of a few treasures. And she definitely found some!
I thought you might enjoy a few pictures. Some of these Barbies are more than 25 years old. My sister and I had just as much fun looking through the goods as Addison and Luke did.
|My mom is not certain how the dream house goes together.|
|Uncle Kris playing with our baby boy.|
|He thought it was a tunnel and crawled through it about a dozen times.|
|Are these leggings?!|
|I found a tiny troll!|
We now have more retro Barbie accessories than you could ever want.
The entire afternoon was filled with a sense of peace. My usual overloaded mind filled with stress and the worries of the week to come, wasn't there to bog me down.
I was free to play. Free to explore. Free to simply be.
It was a good feeling.
Even though I spent time all week tracking my every activity, I had more time. Imagine that. It turns out that when we choose to keep ourselves accountable for the way we spend our time, we spend our time in more meaningful and efficient ways.
There aren't a ton of you who made it through the whole week with us. It was challenging. It was rather eye opening. And for me, it was worth it!
I'm hoping you'll continue with your daily activity that you added to your schedule even after today. I know I'm going to. If you remember nothing else from this week, remember this:
Every single thing we do matters.
Change doesn't have to be a huge event. Change can be made through very small shifts in the way we spend our time.
I'm curious, if you made it through the entire week of time tracking with us, do you feel as though you've changed? And if so, how? (Remember, if you've made it this far, you'll be in the drawing for $200 cash money.) And don't forget that today is the last day to pre-order your Much Ado About You Planner! Don't miss out. Help save my favorite handmade business.
Hoping you found joy in the journey.....
