There are times in life when I’m reminded of just how important family is. Now is one such time.
Of course, ideally, we’d always keep a healthy perspective on what matters most (and least) in life, but when we get caught up in the minutiae of work, school, errands, and bills, it is all too easy to lose sight of those big picture things.
I won’t mince my words here: work (and life in general) are extremely stressful right now. As in, hyperventilating, on-the-verge-of-a-panic-attack-while-driving stressful.
So this past week, I have been infinitely grateful for time with loved ones, not only because it helps ease my situational (and clinical) anxiety, but also because it reminds me of what is most important at the end of the day.
Last Thursday, instead of doing our normal weekly trivia, we kept it low key with a family game night at home. I’m proud to say that I won Cards Against Humanity for the first time!
I cannot say enough how relaxing and refreshing it felt, so I’m very grateful to him for being so supportive and understanding when my stress and anxiety are through the roof.
On Saturday night we had family come over for a little party. I just love playing hostess, and the evening was absolutely perfect. I made homemade guacamole, homemade kitchen sink queso (recipe coming soon!), and an assortment of cheeses and crackers.
On Sunday, we had a big day of furniture shopping. Dear Husband and I got up early to head to Z Gallerie, my favorite furniture store. But not before grabbing a coffee in the Nordstrom cafe!
At Z Gallerie, I picked out a new desk for my Lady Lair. What do you think?
All I can do, though, is remind myself of my loved ones and my health, both of which are infinitely more important than any work project.
Tell me, how has your week been?
Until next time,
