Brownies and Wine

Happy Friday! Good morning! Ah yes, another morning means another blessing. I’ve only just awaken and I already have something to be thankful for. And if you’re reading this, it means you do, too.

I’ve been back in Washington about three weeks since our epic 1 month visit in California. It’s amazing how many experiences we packed in during that time! Family, beach trips, Disneyland, Wanderlust and so much more. Still, it feels so good to be back in our space. In our home ❤

It’s also been 5 whole months since Jade was born! Being a parent is unreal. Some days are easy as a homemade pie while other days it’s a win when brownies and wine are for dinner (seriously!) So, needless to say, our days are full. That’s why it is imperative to schedule in self-care and sprinkle it throughout your day.

No matter what it is that demands your attention, don’t forget to take care of you. A few examples of rejuvenating activities are:

  • going for a walk
  • yoga + meditation
  • pranayama
  • journaling/blogging
  • jamming out
  • dance party
  • connecting with a friend
  • shower/bath
  • take a nap
  • massage
  • mirror mantras
  • hugs
  • literally doing anything outdoors

Replenish yourself often. Nourish yourself. Love and honor yourself by carving out any time you can.

For me, I feel refreshed after expressing creativity. I enjoy painting, photography, makeup, baking, party planning, etc.

Oh, and one more thing. Brownies and wine for dinner..it’s as amazing as it sounds.

Take care!
