Inspiration Workshop Installment #6: Pamper Yourself

This week's link up with Gussy Sews was Pamper Yourself...

Well, let's just say that a perfect day to treat myself to some alone-ness would first involve rain.  Seriously, it's the perfect set up for a day to relax, refresh, and refrain from trying to stay busy.

And then I'd listen to beautiful things like Copeland.



And I'd indulge in coffee.  At a coffeeshop that I could sit in for hours. 

I'd read a lovely book.  Like A Million Miles in a Thousand Years.

And, garden, without a schedule.

Oooo...and I'd get my favorite dessert at Nichole's Fine Pastry in Fargo...(the chocolate one).

 It's quite simple, really, to pamper (although I kind of dislike how royal that word sounds).  It's just a matter of taking the time for yourself.  And, truly, you do need it to remember life isn't a race.  And things don't constantly have to be checked off your to-do list!

At the end of the day, I would spend time with my love.



What do you do to treat yourself?

Sitting at a coffee shop for hours and reading a good book sounds like bliss to me! I completely agree that pampering yourself does not always mean spending lots of money but taking time for yourself doing what you love!
May you have a day like this soon!
