Welcome to my weekly Slow Day post, inspired by Monica from . My Word for 2018 is Slow and, in the spirit of that word, I’m taking one day each week (Wednesday) off — I’ll be unplugged and offline and plan to move at a slower pace, take time to do things that refresh me, and just really focus on being present and savoring the moment.
Each week, I’ll be sharing a photographic peek into my Slow Day. Enjoy a little peek into our lives!

Part of my breakfast — I also had whole wheat toast and the fried egg.
Oh man, was so good! I listened to it while working on some house projects. It sort of inspired me to finish writing .
My mom sent him a bunch of old coins and this safe and he had so much fun organizing everything!
We picked up our mail and there was a box of FREE books from My Reader Rewards!
I also got my coupon for FREE Sparkling Water!
I had earned a free gift card from Barnes & Noble, so Kaitlynn and I went on an afternoon date there together.
I just finished and surprised myself by really enjoying it. I’ll share more tomorrow in my weekly book post!
I worked on prepping to lead our Discipleship Small Group next week and went over this week’s lessons, too.
I had trouble getting into , but the more I’m reading it, the more I’m really finding it insightful and challenging.
