There’s been a lot of talk about “busy-ness” in the blogosphere over the last week (which I will address in detail in a future post!)
But what I love about summer is that it feels like an excuse not to be busy. We do a lot of hanging out, usually with my brother, his wife Jenna and their three kids. In fact, I think we may have perfected the art of the un-busy, laid-back summer evening. Here’s my “recipe”:
Step 1: Find a comfy lounge chair and a magazine.
Step 2: Sprinkle in cute kids.
Step 3. Add water.
Step 4: Blend in washable toys.
Step 5: Toss with inexpensive, in-season, grill-friendly foods.
Step 6: Serve kids, serve yourself, sit back and enjoy.
What’s your recipe for a laid-back summer evening?
Check back on Monday, when I’ll be sharing my thoughts about the pursuit of “busy” and tips for how to keep your life from being overrun by activity and commitments. Until then, I hope you enjoy a relaxing weekend!
