31 days: plan less, live more

Yesterday might have been a perfect day. 

We had plans on Friday and Saturday night and I had plans Saturday morning, thus Sunday was left open and free. 

Nothing on the calendar. 

No agenda.

We woke up, made coffee and sat on the front porch to read. 

I sat and felt the cool crisp fall air blow on my face. I looked at the leaves on the trees that are just starting to change colors. 

I started a new devotional book, I enjoyed watching my husband and pup cuddle. 

It was a glorious morning. 

We decided it was a brunch kind of day, quickly showered and headed out to try a new place. It was perfect, good diner food with amazing customer service. The icing on the cake, drinks served out of a mason jar. 

We read the local papers while waiting for our food, we talked about things we'd like to do over the holidays. 

After our bellies were full we decided to head to the art festival. After looking at and being inspired by tons of local artists we headed home. 

We spent the afternoon half awake watching old Felicity episodes. 

We spent the evening walking Khloe around the downtown waterfront. 

We ended the night with a fro yo date. 

A glorious Sunday. 

It was a great reminder to stop always planning life and just live it. 

We had no plans. We had decided to stay home and do nothing or do everything, we would decide in the moment. 

Life gets so busy and to be honest I think so many times we like to make ourselves look and feel busier than we are or than we need to be. 

I have to remind myself it isn't always about the destination, sometimes it is the journey that is more important. 

Yesterday left my mind clear and my heart full.

I love how you put that: moments that leave your mind empty, but your heart full. I'm all about intentional living, and I love little reminders like this - so thank you! Also, just saw you moved to VA which is where I live! Welcome to the Commonwealth :-)
