It’s been a while since I wrote a slow day post. We’ve had many but I’ve been less motivated to capture them on camera. It’s something about blogging that makes you never put a camera down and invade your family’s most precious moments all to capture a good photo-op for your blog. That has been less appealing to me. Because sometimes I miss those true special moments for “work mode”. Sometimes it’s nice to just put down the camera and seize the moment and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing.

I’ve worked hard at creating SLOW for my family and still do. It’s very easy to slip away from it especially with a busy family. I feel so accomplished when my husband can rest and my children can enjoy us. Slow days for us is on Sunday’s. We spend the week hammering away at life and working our very hardest and Sunday we do nothing. No cooking, no working, no thinking about next week, no cleaning, no nothing. We rest and enjoy each other. I try to get dinner ready on Saturday and hang up the apron until Monday. This has been so nice for us. Our tradition of the sorts on Slow day is Church, nap, walk, play and eat. Doesn’t that sound lovely?

We also have special times each week with our children where each child will spend a certain amount of time with one parent alone doing whatever they desire. So this particular Slow day captured my time with my Kid hero who loves cooking and baking. Here’s a look into our latest slow day.

There is so much beauty around us! I so love living where we are and this is not even a scenic route. All of this beauty reminds me how God provides rest and provision. How could we miss this? This for me details God’s love crashing over us wave after wave. There is nothing more humbling than seeing a glimpse of the God’s hand in everyday life.

How does your family slow?
