I think the next few months are going to be huge. I mean really amazing things are happening here in our little world. This weekend felt a little like the calm before the storm.
One of the last free weekends for quite some time, with no place to be and no place to go except home. It was T - Minus 96 hours before crazy town blasts off.
We spent time in the garden, ate delicious food, went for walks in the rain, then dried wet hair and warmed cold toes by the fire.
But really, best of all was noticing simple things. Like Elsa wearing a beanie she's had since she was two, raindrops clinging to saffron crocus leaves and a painting hung skew whiff above a favourite cupboard.
Taking time to stop and observe the little things went a long way to soothe those crazy butterflies in my stomach. I will be taking a lot of deep breaths and making sure I remember to stop and notice the simple over the next few months.
Do you notice simple things?
What do you do to stay calm and grounded when you feel overwhelmed?
