Mental Health Break

Yesterday my cute niece called me in the morning in tears. She was stressed out, overwhelmed, a bit depressed and generally feeling yucky.

She spent the day on my couch snuggling my baby. We shared a bowl of soup and People magazine.

She just needed a day to re-group. To relax and recharge. So it is with me. I am leaving this morning for my own mental health break. Somehow I know a week in the warm sunshine with a few good books, a few good meals and lots of snuggle time with my baby is just the cure I need.

Until then.

Have so much fun in the sun, I am a jealous girl right now. I just bought me the people magazine crossword puzzle book that has 100 puzzles in it, don't know if you like doing those but it is pretty fun, I actually feel smart:)

Enjoy! I'm having a little bit of a hard time myself right now. Winter Blahs have definetly set in! The cure - a little get away- sadly I don't have one planned- I guess I need to get planning something. Soak up the sun for me and enjoy your get away! XOXO

EVERYONE should have mental health breaks on a regular basis, I am convinced! Thanks for the delish recipe for tortilla soup! How did you know that is my favorite kind of soup? Mmmm, the mouth is watering and I can't wait to try it!
