I know I’ve said it before, but it has never been more true than it is now with 3 goofy children running around, but it is so damn easy to lose sight of how you want your life to be when you feel as if you’re in survival mode in the trenches of daily life. Throw in an international move, and multiples and it has just really hit home how far off track we have gotten over the last year and a half. Too much overly processed food, too much ignoring the clutter, and too many times of not remembering to buy wine….which may be the worst charge of them all!
But suddenly we feel like we can breathe. G and I sat down over a dinner while the kids played and hashed out how to get back to living a life where we feel relaxed and can say that we’re living well to our standards. Setting out to have bubbly Fridays again. Establishing a weekly date night in where we can connect while the kids entertain themselves. Working on branching out to entertaining in our home. Getting back to whole foods and enjoying meals more. And decluttering so that the next move goes smoothly.
We’re also working on establishing a rhythm to help us with these goals. Everything from a cleaning schedule to days that we do certain things. For instance, brunch and the market on Saturdays. And working on communicating better so that we can pick up slack when the other has more on their plate.
One of the biggest things we’re doing to get back to the way things used to be is something I had wanted to do before but failed because I was not handling having infant twins well. I want to work through all of my lovely French cookbooks as well as learning how to make things like a good spring risotto. What that means for you lovely readers is that I will be working on sharing what new food we’ve made, as well as any modifications I might have made or recommendations for change. I will be posting a Taste and See Thursdays series so that if the meal sounds good you’ll have time to pick up ingredients for the weekend to make it if you’d like. If you follow me on Instagram and/or Facebook I’ll be posting little previews of what we’ve had to get your mouths watering ahead of time.
In a nutshell things are going to change around here, but only in the best possible ways. And I cannot wait to share it with you all!
