Reminiscing on when I got to take a quick getaway with my family and wore my #memade eyelet coverup😉. I got to relax and enjoy the slow pace of life for a weekend.
Personally, I easily get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and try to check off as many things as I possibly can in one day. I tell myself that when my husband graduates, I’ll relax. When I finish saving for my children’s education, I’ll relax. When dinner is made, I’ll relax. When I finish putting my book together, I’ll relax. The list goes on.
I recently had a health scare that made me self reflect (nothing serious). It was a reminder that I will always have a long list of things to complete, but I have to learn to slow down and be in the moment. Have you ever had to reevaluate your life’s pace?
I decided to take time in the car rider line to do prayer 🙏 and listen to podcasts, read books, or listen to audio books. If you have any prayer requests, feel free to send them my way😊. So what helps you to be in the moment and relax?
Btw, I highly recommend Butterick 5746 to get your personal fitting pattern. I made my red lace block pattern out of it. In turn, that block pattern allowed me to make my bathing suit coverup. I will now use the skirt portion of my coverup to make my fashion show skirt.
I will also use the red lace block pattern to create a blouse. The possibilities are endless when you get a good fit on your basic block pattern.
Well, I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get to relax! 🤗😘
