After a week long work trip, I awoke tired on Friday, but I still had a baby shower to host. I spent Friday preparing the food and activities for the baby shower, and a friend and I hosted a fun event on Friday evening. It really was nice to connect with some old friends, and I loved celebrating the new life still growing inside one of my dear friends.
Saturday was a sunny day in the Pacific Northwest. The rain has started in Seattle, and I appreciated the reprieve from the rain. Instead of watching Little League Football and my daughter cheering in a downpour, I enjoyed the warmth of a sun that will make few appearances during our grey Northwest winters. What really made Saturday perfect - A NAP.
I was a little more productive today. After church, the family went on a bike ride and run. Ben and I ran while the kids rode bikes. It was wonderful. I got some of the laundry done, the children finished their homework, and we had a family meal of tacos - everyone's favorite.
There is always work to do. I know Ben wanted to get more done on his app, and I know he wanted more input from me...but this was a rare sunny weekend. Sometimes, you have to let go of the schedule. It will still be there on Monday. The Pacific Northwest sun becomes a rare sight in Fall and Winter. You have to take advantage!
