Sitting here on a Sunday afternoon on my bed putting together a collection of my favourite photos from this weeks Living Fearlessly Authentic Instagram Community, my hubby just surprised me by bringing me a cup of tea and a handful of those delicious speckled mini easter eggs. The weather has turned surprisingly cold today and the rain has been pouring down on and off all morning, every now and then the blue sky makes an appearance. The wind almost sounds wild, and so my bedroom seems like the perfect place to cosy up and work on my blog. We had planned a family drive out to the countryside today, but it ended up feeling like a lazy indoor Sunday instead.

My brother has taken Aspen to see Beauty and The Beast today, and hubby is having some time with our two youngest. It’s nice just being here having a little quiet moment writing and sipping my warm tea. If you read my recent post on feeling low, you will know that last week I struggled to feel happy, I think sometimes we just need a quiet day. We always have so much scheduled in, like yesterday with parties and playdates and taxiing kids around, whilst trying to work on the garden in between, life can just be too busy too often! So I am going to enjoy this moment, on this cold, windy, lazy Sunday afternoon. What did you get up to over the weekend?  Did you manage any quiet time?
