A little snack as I get dinner ready.

Once a week I do my best to schedule a "home day"...
no errands, play dates, work, meetings, trips or commitments.

I like to aim for Monday.
Just because the weekends can be so hectic... 
and it gets the week started on the right foot for me.

It is so easy to run around all the time.
Have something planned every single day.
Race around and slide in right before dinner time.

But we don't read as many books.
I don't get as many snuggles.
And my list never gets shorter that way.

On "home day" I can clean and play.
Hang up a laundry and collect dandelions.
So I say no and stay in.

The Home day is a great idea. I love all of your shots especially the one of her having her coffee too ;o)

Sounds wise - and it's nice to see your day like this! :-)

We do the same exact thing on the same exact day. Having home days on Mondays really gives the week a fantastic start, even if it's one of the few (or only) days some things get checked off the to do list...

P.S. I've been enjoying all your posts lately. Your consistency even with the pregnancy and Eva are inspiring :)

Your calendar looks ridiculously organized. Eva is absolute adorable, especially with her “coffee”. And I must say, your home day sounds like heaven – even if it never goes as planned.

I love this post so much Nessa. What a great capture of "moments and impressions" - images and commentary from the day. I've been meaning to do something along these lines for a while now. You've inspired me to make it happen! Thank you.
