This weekend Nate and I decided to take some much needed "us" time. We dropped the dog off at daycare, dressed up, and did a full on date night. The past few weekends have been full of friends (us visiting and them visiting), a wedding, family in town, and various other activities. We haven't had a lot of time to relax and recharge on our own, so we took that opportunity this weekend. We spent the night at a steakhouse and then snuggled in and watched the Sex and the City movie (I'm sure you can guess whose turn it was to pick!).
We sometimes forget to take that little bit of time for ourselves, but it truly is a necessary part of life. I like to gift myself a spa day every now and then again, a day of shopping, or even a day to do nothing. Weekends where I have no agenda can sometimes be the best weekends of all! When was the last time you took time for yourself? What did you do?
