{ the art of doing nothing...}

IMG_2860

My plan, originally, was to dig in over the holiday break and work on getting my blog in shape for a January kickoff. Instead–with my husband on vacation, things slow at my 'real job', a fun–but hectic–December behind us, and my daughter's school closed–I opted to take a much needed break from the real world and spend some time cocooning with my family.


I had forgotten how blissful it can be to simply do 'nothing'. No alarm clock, no commitments, no traffic, no deadlines...Instead, we've indulged in late night movies, snuggling in our PJs till noon, constructing blanket and pillow forts and sitting fireside with cups of decadent hot cocoa (topped with whipped cream of course).

An unexpected bonus of this mini escape from reality is the opportunity it provided to declutter my mind and organize my thoughts for 2008. For the first time in many years, I actually took the time to reflect on the past year and think about and plan my resolutions/goals for the new year. Who knew that doing nothing would prove to be so productive??? I look forward to sharing some of my resolutions with you as I dive into my 2008 blogging goals. In the meantime, I hope this inspires you to take a break yourself and get busy doing nothing for a bit. Cheers to a peaceful and inspiring New Year!

I appreciate that art in it's truest form. My girls and I have it mastered...every Friday night. We call it "Girls Night In".
I just found your blog and wanted to stop by and say hello.
Happy New Year!
