Wow, I don’t ever remember the transition back to work and school after the holidays being this tough.
Perhaps it’s because I went back to work on a Monday? Whatever it is, the struggle is real!
Although we didn’t venture very far this holiday, the time spent at home truly was absolutely restful and fulfilling! Spending time in our home, spending time with immediate family and friends and spending real quality time with the kids really does wonders for the soul.
I think that’s what’s making the transition back to reality extra hard!I’m also missing out on indulging on a few things that made my time off fabulous! And it’s not what you’re thinking!
“Going green” or living an “environmentally friendly” lifestyle can sometimes seem overwhelming. At first thought, like me, you probably wouldn’t know where to begin and what difference it would even make!
But let’s think about it this way – being environmentally friendly simply just means having a lifestyle that is better for the environment. It’s basically all about taking small steps towards making this planet a better place for our communities and generations to come!
We already know the benefits of recycling, but what else can you do to make your household a little greener?
This school holiday has just come and gone!
Like many of your kids, Alyssa and Aidan make their way back to school tomorrow. We will have to get back into the swing of things and get the kids back into the hang of early bedtimes and early rising.
Alyssa will be starting Grade R this year (unbelievable how time has gone by!) and Aidan will make his way back to pre-school.
If I had to describe 2018 in a few words, I would have to say: Fabulous, Flourishing, Fascinating yet Frustrating at times.
If you follow me and my blog via Instagram, you’ll see that it’s probably the platform where I share the most about me and our family and our day to day life. Looking back at my Instagram feed, you can actually see these words reflecting in my posts.
I prefer focusing on the positive so (yes I do however acknowledge and learn from these things, that’s key) I thought I’d do a recap of some of the fun things I’ve done and celebrated this year.
Here are some highlights I’ve shared over on Instagram in 2018.
