Blizzard Nemo has come and past.. good news – we survived!
Maybe it was those months of practice this fall after Max was born, or growing up in a mountain town in Maine, but I look at winter weather – which has trapped many indoors for days – as an opportunity. I finally had a chance to do all of those projects that were put on hold when life gets busy. I finally had a chance to hang out without social obligations. I finally had a chance to just… be.
Of course, being in the city, it’s hard to ever get too far away from anyone. So by Saturday night we were out for a quick bite to eat at a local pub (with great food, by the way!) after passing a massive snowball-fight and some unique snow sculptures in the square.
When a friend asked if I was bored on Sunday, I didn’t know how to answer. “You mean you didn’t have a fantastic weekend at home, doing your Project Life baby album, organizing pictures, and checking all of your friend’s snow photos on Facebook?”
As someone who is rarely bored, I can tell you .. sometimes it’s nice to “just be”. Put on some mello music, grab a glass of wine (or your favorite comfort beverage), and spend some time just wandering around in your own thoughts. Who knows where you might wander to!
