Games Night.

IMG_4.jpg IMG_2.jpgIMG_3.jpg IMG_1.jpgOctober to January are probably the busiest 4 months around our home. I am guessing that may be true for lots of people. With October comes four birthdays, Thanksgiving, and Halloween. My birthday and most of our Christmas shopping occurs in November. December brings Christmas, more shopping, two additional birthdays, and New Years Eve. Finally, January is all about making changes and celebrating my husband’s birthday. It never ends!

My mentality has always been to work hard and play very little. However, the older I get, the more I realize that work is not everything. I am starting to see how important it is to take the time to unwind, if only for an hour a day. Hanging out with friends is something that almost never happens, but is also something that I am trying to incorporate into my life more. This may only come once a month, but when it does, I make sure to set aside an entire evening to do so. Games night is a great example how I like to spend time relaxing with friends.

Now that we are in the final weeks before Christmas, please make sure you also take some time out for yourselves! This will help you unwind, regroup, and feel rejuvenated for the holiday season. With all of the planning and stress that goes into it, it’s sometimes easy to forget the real meaning of Christmas.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    • I know! You have such a busy month planned. I especially wish you all the luck with making your gifts … I think at the end you will deserve some sort of medal. :-)

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Early morning post (before I start painting our living room walls). We viewed our first acreage in four years last month. While the outside of the property was one hundred times more appealing than the interior, it’s inspired us to see more. We’re country folk at heart- both being raised on farms and acreages. We probably will not stop until we find that piece of prairie land that whispers our names. 🌾💛 Happy birthday, husband. I’m sorry that your birthday doesn’t always go as planned. Also, transitioning from you being gone for weeks, to then being home for a few hours, only to leave again is anything but smooth at first. But know that Remy and I do love and appreciate you so much. I hope that you have a wonderful year (since we’ll probably be spending much of it apart), wherever you now are.
