I really am trying to get myself into a zen like state by relaxing more since I'm going through a lot personally right now. Life gets overwhelming sometimes, and I tend to retreat offline and onto the couch to cuddle with my boys and watch entirely too much TV. It's fun to escape mentally sometimes since I can't physically escape to Paris or something anytime soon.
Another thing I like to do to escape the chaos in my head is to get outside and enjoy the sunshine! Living by the gulf means there's plentiful sunshine and breezy days, but since we've moved to the apartment, I'm not outside as much as I'd like. I really miss our huge acre of land and gorgeous backyard from our former Beeville home, and while we did bring some outdoor furniture to enjoy our (fairly large 6x15) apartment patio, we haven't actually spent anytime out here.
And to make matters worse, I packed up all of our outdoor pillows and put them into storage... #fail I guess I kind of had to splurge on some new stuff, right?
