I truly love the life we are living, and normally embrace the unconventional aspects of it. It has been good for me. It has grown me as person. I confess that when it comes to holidays, I have a real problem with it though. There are two dynamics that I've noticed are becoming a part of our holiday theme. One is that we no longer have that same excitement about holidays. We live the life we normally looked forward to when holidays did occur. So holidays are just not all that unique or special in the same way. We don't have the same need for days of rest or for family time since that is how we live pretty much every single day.
Today, I decided to try something that would in fact make the day different for me. If the old traditions aren't working, maybe it is time for new ones I thought. So I hopped in the truck and went and took one of those Sunday drives that I said last year that I was going to try to do and learn to like.
It was a great day for it. Sunny and warm. The air smelled sweet from blossoming flowers. And since it was just me, I could go at my own pace. I confess, I rather liked this Sunday drive thing. I still don't see myself doing it on a regular basis, but I really might be able to make this one of my new holiday traditions.
I've been stressed about some things to do with my girls. I could feel that stress just melting away the longer I was out and snapping pictures.
Happy Easter from Florida! Hope your day was special too!
