a little r & r.

I've been craving the calm lately, longing for a little peace and quiet. Things have been go-go-go over the past few weeks—the past few months, really—and nothing sounds quite so good as a lit candle, a good book, and the smell of home cooking wafting through our hallway. 

If I'm being completely honest, I have a very clear marker that tells me when I need to slow down: a stack of unread magazines. There's nothing I love more than diving into my monthly subscriptions, so the pile on my desk (ten high...) is a clear sign that I need to take it easy for a little while.

Here's to a relaxing, restful weekend, friends.
What will you be up to?

sometimes we do need to slow down so we won't end up explode. this weekend, my plan is studying for my final paper presentation next week

Ha I looked at my magazines this morning and realized they were overflowing, right away I promised a little pool time on Saturday with nothing but some mags and quiet time in the sun!

@Sarah Rall Haha I love that you relate! What I wouldn't give for a little pool time... Not quite warm enough in SF :)

It sounds perfect, my favourite way to while away the afternoon. Unfortunately for me, I've got the exact opposite of your problem and don't have enough going on to keep me busy! I need some stuff to do!

Enjoy your magazine reading :)

I have to calm down too! There are two unread magazines and one book which is waiting for me..
