we've fallen into a pretty predictable routine this winter, and i have to say i really love it. a good routine just makes me really happy, that's all there is to it.
our winter routine starts with slow mornings. we take our time getting ready and send daddy off to work with kisses, and then in the afternoons we book it. we crawl all over our frozen city in a millions layers, running errands, hitting playschool and all of hen's toddler social activities, usually stopping for lunch, only coming home when the setting sun forces us in.
then it's dinner and laundry and emails and baths, and sometimes i like to wear my work out clothes while loading the dishwasher just in case tonight is the night i finally make it to the treadmill in the basement.
i just think it's great.
after running around the city all afternoon, our quiet nights at home feel sweet and rewarding. we take off our shoes (aaaaaand our pants) restock the cabinets of their dishes and tidy the house, and set the scene for tomorrow when we'll do it all over again.
(thank you to albion fit for sending me some motivational work out gear.
i think it'll help the cause!)
