Finding Peace

This week marks our first back to school season - Gracie has started PRE-K! I can hardly believe it. After a jam packed summer (more to come on that later!) our family is more than ready to get back to a routine. Gracie is already in love with her teacher and all her new friends and I am so thankful this has been an easy transi
On Tuesday morning while we are getting into our morning groove we found a FROG in our house. How does no one notice a frog in the house?! I successfully scooped the little guy into the backyard after chasing him for what seemed like forever. We got Gracie to school on time and I googled the meaning of frogs because it had been in the back of my head all morning. Did you know frogs bring peace and tranquility in times of change? I had no idea until now. I am choosing to believe this with my whole heart because it fits our life so well for the moment.
Some of my favorite ways to find peace in this crazy life are listed below. What helps you guys?! I'd love some new ideas!
Yoga - I always feel more in tuned with my self after yoga whether it was by myself or in a yoga class.
Books - There is something about getting lost in a good book that makes me just feel better when I come back to the real world.
Art - Coloring, drawing, painting. I love creating things and this is something Gracie and I love to do together. She always laughs at my drawings and I'm always inspired by hers. There is a peaceful quietness to this activity that helps me go to my happy place. I know of some great grown up coloring books too - check out my review of 2old2color here!
