Welcome to my weekly Slow Day post, inspired by Monica from The Homespun Heart. 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!

Kaitlynn and Silas had Crazy Hair Day on Wednesday at school.
Kaitlynn wore a wig… and Silas decided he wanted to keep it simple and just spike his hair up. 🙂
I went with the kids to Morning Assembly a school and had to laugh at all of the fun hairdos that showed up! 🙂
After Morning Assembly, I went to church for Discipleship Group.
Jesse has been having some health issues recently and we’re in the middle of waiting to get more specific answers and direction… it reminds me to cherish the moments we have together.
Jesse dropped me off back at home and went to pick up the kids from school, so I listened to this audiobook and did some baking. (Note: I was disappointed in this audiobook — more on that in my book post on Monday.)
I was so happy with how this Pumpkin Waffle recipe turned out!
It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve cooked and taken pictures and posted a recipe on the blog… so it felt so fulfilling to do so. I’m inspired to make this more of a regular thing around here on the blog again!
After the waffles and photos were done, I made some tea and worked on some projects.
The waffles were a hit!
Jesse and I closed out the night by watching the first episode of the newest season of This is Us (sooo good!). It was a good day!
