Time to sit and be ♥

Two weeks ago, this happened....

Somehow a miracle occurred and I had the opportunity to sit in my favorite coffee shop with a book and a vanilla latte. It was sheer bliss! ♥

The reason it was so blissful was because moments like this are very rare.  I seem to be always running around here, there, and EVERYWHERE! It felt so refreshing to just sit down and let the time tick away.  Just me and Shakespeare. We are good friends now.  He had me at sonnet #18 ♥
Since that day I've been dreaming about going back there.  I've decided to make time for this in my life.  Time to just sit and be.  Summer bucket list/life bucket list. 
There are always other things that we could be and should be doing.  I've found that I am much more productive after I've taken a little time for myself.  Even if it's just 1 hour in a coffee shop. I've learned to let go of the guilt and be good to myself. I'm a better wife, mother, daughter, and friend for it.  The "grind" will always be there.  I'll get back to it later.  Right now, I have a date with Bill and a chair with my name on it waiting for me.  ♥
So tell me, how do you treat yourself? 


  1. It is very important to take a little time for yourself. Mine is usually spent shopping or getting a mani/pedi, but sometimes just sitting on the deck, reading a book is pretty much perfection!

  2. Danielle, It's the little things in life.. the day to day activities .. that we can and should appreciate. Something so simple as a vanilla latte in your favorite coffee shop ~ with your favorite book, it doesn't get much better than that. Good for your for taking some time out for yourself! xxleslie

  3. I couldn't agree more with you, Danielle. We all need to take time for ourselves, even if it's just one hour a day to recharge and be alone with our thoughts. You must make it a priority and stick to it. xoxo
