Weekends can be pretty awesome. While it has taken me a while to fully appreciate them, I do now. I think this change is because I have greatly reduced the amount that I work during the weekends. Of course this means working a little smarter during the week, but I've enjoyed the result immensely.
This summer Ben and I have made a point to enjoy ourselves and really explore our city, like tourists. It's pretty amazing to see your city with new eyes. Every weekend we engage in what we call everyday adventures. Our adventures are pretty low key, like trying a new restaurant or walking to the park for an evening concert, but these experiences form memories and help us recharge for the week ahead. Here are a few highlights from July:
We checked out exhibits at the local science museum.
We even had a picnic, which happens to be an item on our summer bucket list. In fact, I feel like I should institute a bucket list for every season. Why not? I'm already dreaming up adventures for fall.
I made coconut granola for the first time. I've really wanted to do a better job of eating breakfast everyday. Having healthy options like granola on hand is just what I need for pairing with my favorite berries. The great thing is that I can take it on the go or enjoy it at our kitchen table with my coffee, to ward off the jitters when I get to carried away with my caffeine habit.
Wishing you a fun-filled weekend ahead!
