Mental Health Day

Did you ever have one of those days where you just felt like you needed a "Mental Health" Day.  Today was one of those for me.

I got in my car and took a day for myself.  I had no real plans just went to where I felt I wanted to go.  It was nice to just see where the day would take me.

I found this little treasure on my trip today.


Loved the saying on this chalk board block.  "Let's go into the garden and listen to the flowers sing!"  Loved it the minute I saw it.  I knew it would look cute in my wreath by the front door.


I really enjoyed a day to myself.  I had a nice day stopping at some fave shops and eating a nice and yummy lunch.

I think every once in awhile we need to have some time just to ourselves, to do what we want and see the day unfold and enjoy the journey on our own.

As Martha Stewart always says "It's a good thing".
Wishing you a wonderful day.

Please come back on Saturday for Spotlight Susan and I have two new bloggers for you to get to know better.

  5. Yes...a mental health day is always good and shopping and lunch would have been on my agenda, too! I love your sign. I never heard that quote, it's so neat! I visited my FIL and we sat on his porch getting some vitamin D for the few hours it didn't rain. I love the rain but I get the weeds so bad. Did a little weeding but not making much of a dent!

    Have a great weekend.

    XO,

  21. I so can't wait to have days like that again. When we move I will have that ability. One week and then unpacking, decorating and projects can begin. Decorating and projects make me feel at peace.

  22. My mental health days include getting out in nature and feeling closer to God. Inner peace develops as I snap away with my camera.

  23. Kris,
    Yes, yes, yes to a mental health day where your spirit can rejoice in it's own special way and day. A day of play without any preconceived plans is what truly means being in the peace of the day. Very adorable blackboard sign and a remembrance of your special day. Happy Friday it is a busy one for me. But often times I enjoy chaos of creativity... Go figure!
