Substance and Soul

Island living

HomeSamantha WetterholmComment

I'm not going to lie. Two full-time working parents does not a lot of free time make. We savor our weekends together. Though often, weekends can sometimes turn into errands and chores days and then before we know it -- POOF -- it's the work week again.

But this weekend, we made it about to savor our little respite from the hectic work week and had a staycation on our little island.

It started Friday night with our weekend family movie night. We picked peaches from our very own tree and gorged ourselves on sweet peaches. On Saturday, we took a long walk and explored a hidden gem of a lagoon and park. We swam in our community pool and shivered when we had to get out of the heated water. Today, we watched Paul play a tennis match then took turns hitting around. I still got it. But it's just been one of those perfect weekends. Yes, I did some chores and we did run some errands to get food (because mama has gotta eat) but I didn't feel consumed by the to-do list. It was lovely. And this weary soul needed it.
