We also embrace retreat.
Adventure and Retreat. That brings a balance, a rhythm to living well.
It has felt more important than ever to make room for retreat in a month filled with 31 adventures. So though we have not taken pictures of it, or blogged about it, we have been intentional about some retreating . . .
There really isn’t any sleeping in with a two year old, but there is snuggling in, where we stay in bed a little longer in the morning.
We have enjoyed drinking a good cup of tea and talking . . .
We have had nights in by the fire and read books together in the car. We have played backgammon and watched Top Chef. We have adventured out . . . but we have also intentionally found time to retreat. And that has made all the difference.
