"A happy family is but an earlier heaven."

So, today I called off of work. Shhh, don't tell them...
"mental health day", right? I haven't taken one in so long, and my attendance record is almost spotless, so I figured "why not?".
I think, it is important, as mom's, that we take some time, now and again, for ourselves. It helps us recharge our batteries, and brings us back to reality. We are more then just a mom. I think we all tend to lose a part of ourselves when we become a mother, don't get me wrong, we also gain a lot. It's okay to admit this though, and remind ourselves that we are an amazing woman!
my little dancing queen swaying and bobbing to the beats. I was able to enjoy a beautiful evening outside, listening to live music and enjoying a beer! Ahhh it felt so good!
The best part is that I was able to do these things with my daughter right next to me. I am very grateful for this amazing weekend and for my wonderful family. Thank you, to whoever out there :), allowed me to experience this!
