Hi.

Welcome to my blog where I document my adventures in travel, style, food and motherhood.

Chasing Slow

Chasing Slow

I'm sure once baby arrives things will be hectic and to be honest, I have no idea what to expect {two under two....eek!}. Until then, I'm indulging a bit, definitely taking a step back and trying to "relax" as much as I can. If you know me, this is TOUGH because I'm used to having a packed schedule and I'm not good at saying "no" to plans. Aside from being almost 38 weeks pregnant {on Sunday, YAY!}, and my body feeling it, I'm simply just tired at the of the day after caring for a little one, working full-time, "life" stuff and trying to fit in the occasional workout. But, I definitely didn't end up at this slower pace, or even the idea of wanting and needing to slow things down until I picked up this book. I've only just started it, but already I feel myself "chasing slow".

This dress is non-maternity and it's available in three colors. It's so comfortable.

I think it's all to easy to get caught up in the day-to-day, to feel the need to over schedule, over commit and to plan far in advance. The old me was all about "getting things on the calendar" and while I loved being busy all the time, I'm embracing a different lifestyle and a different speed these days. Family time on the weekends, impromptu date nights and visits with friends and overall a more relaxed schedule. I know that once baby arrives things will get hectic, but I fully plan on enjoying the early days and not feeling guilty about saying "no" or feeling the need to jump back into a schedule or routine. 

Do you also feel this same sense of needing to slow things down? If so, I would love any tips, books or helpful feedback on how you've started embracing a slower pace and lifestyle these days.
