Finding my path to health and wellness has not come easy to me. I can see, plain as day, what I need to do, but the motivation to do so, is another ordeal entirely.
Stress from work, home, family, money, blah blah blah…has really put a damper on my spirit as of late and I’m looking for outlets to bring back my vigor, my creative, fun nature and my drive. I may have found it.
My husband and I have started “projects”. The kind of projects that either fill our house, are gifted to others, or sold for a little extra cash. There is something lively and electric about the search for the perfect pieces to our masterpieces. Sometimes it’s a simple drive to the Home Depot or Thrift Store, other times it a 30 min drive to get wooden pallets from a friends farm. It’s always an adventure and always a challenge.
When we get the products, it about how we can do it better than the last time, improve it, get MORE creative and Charlie and I just gel during these!
We get so caught up in our crazy lives that Charlie and I tend to nit-pick at each other for the dumbest things. When we are creating together, however, it’s like a new spark, a new journey and it’s so refreshing. It’s like craft time for adults!
Someday, we’ll teach Timothy how to use the saws, hammers and more to create for himself, but for now, Pinterest has become the catalyst to our “date nights” and I’m so grateful!
