some much needed r & r

On Wednesday, I loaded up the car, picked up the boys from school and headed to Indianapolis.  I looked at the calendar and realized it was the MIDDLE of July!  Lately, I’ve been running around in all directions.  I decided it was time for some much needed rest and relaxation.  Where better to head than home.

I love visiting my mom.  She gives me a sense of comfort and peace that can not be described by words.  The smell of her house, the coffee brewing in the morning and the long talks on the back porch.

I also got to squeeze in a few visits with good friends.

It was a much needed break!

We got back last night and tonight Doug took the boys on their first overnight camping trip.

Let the R&R continue…

How do you get a little R&R?

      This sounds kind of strange, but I love the feeling of missing my boys. It makes you evaluate how much you love them and how much you want to see them. It is always good to get a break, so we can be the best moms for our kids. This is at least my motto. :) Good for you for getting some R&R.
