(and explore your spouse's home town)
(and chop wood)
(and not have a list of to-do's to obsess over.)
Don't be jealous of my style. It's hard to master this kind of look...
As I was writing the first part of this post, I was perched in the den of the manfriend's parents' house in rural Michigan with views of the frozen lake just outside.
The lake before my morning run
Some days, the biggest thing planned for the day was my run or going out to dinner at a nearby restaurant.
My run view
A little frost one morning, but no snow
Unfortunately, I woke up sick the morning we left Michigan to head over to Chicago to see the manfriend's brother and his little family for a few days, which forced me to do even more slowing down, napping and totally lay off the exercise.
Family time is good. And seeing the little ones, brought so much happiness to my heart. I just wish flights across the country weren't so long (and expensive).
Now I'm just trying to kick this sinus infection and plugged eardrum (thanks to the plane ride home) so that this first week of winter term isn't miserable.
I posted this on Instagram, but I was totally impressed with the San Francisco Airport's free yoga room I utilized during our three hour layover yesterday. Free props, mats and sanitizer too! It felt so good to get my stretch on.
Talk about a way to chill out and stretch the legs out after a 4.5 hour plane ride.
I need to get you caught up on these last few weeks of pregnancy, but I will say that I've reached this point where my belly is just feeling bigger and awkward. It feels almost like an attachment rather than part of my core if that makes sense. As a result, my normal clothes are starting to feel uncomfortable, so I'm trying to stick to maternity wear. I've also been feeling the baby kick and move around, which is pretty cool, but I have yet to feel it from the outside with my hand.
Okay, time to do a few errands, drink more tea, nap and organize my school stuff. I hope your Sunday is going well!
What did you do to slow down this holiday season?
