As you know, we went for a little trip to Niagara Falls for the weekend. It was lovely to get away and spend some quality time – -separately ;) lol
Daddy was with his girl in Marineland
I was relaxing cottage-style at my mom’s house just 5 minutes from the Niagara Falls main attractions. But here, it felt as though I was up north in cottage country…
Yes this is the same day! And yes, I did feel guilty for not engaging in family fun. But you know what… it’s ok. Sometimes I need a little space to myself and just relax in my own way. At home I usually can’t do that – because laundry or other fun chore would be my activities – - and this way I truly found peace and quiet for the day. I even played with my camera and pulled some self-portraits – whooo – that is new. I am seeing a little inner spark happening with the confidence it’s building inside of me.
Beautiful serene surroundings + inner peace = happiness.
And yes, eventually the guilt (that I’m not out being a ‘mom’ and spending the day with my family) wore off ;) And eventually they came home and I caught up with my mommy duties… and then later, we went out for the fireworks display.
I hope you had a great weekend too!!!
And for all the moms out there – if you can have a day to yourself – take it! It is wonderful for mama to do. It clears the head, relieves any tension spots and it’s just nice to hear your own relaxed breathing for a change.
….and soon we’ll go to Marineland together this time ;)
