I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking lately about the craziness of my life and the kids’ lives, and that led me to write this post.
I’m ready for a slower summer. A less scheduled, more relaxed, old fashioned summer.
You know, like the ones I had when I was a kid.
And this got me to thinking about my friend Eileen who, after realizing the same thing a couple years ago, started the #SlowSummerSeries on her Instagram (@LittleAcornLearning) and also on her blog (http://littleacornlearning.com/).
So I texted her a couple weeks ago and asked her if she’d be interested in partnering up and working together.
And that’s when we came up with the #ShowYourSlow Movement to inspire other moms to slow down and to help each other be more mindful and present and able to enjoy the simple moments of summer together.
How do you join in the fun?
- Follow @notyouraveragemomofficial and @littleacornlearning on Instagram.
- Check out our blogs each week to see what the prompts for the week are. (These themes are optional and purely inspirational! Share ANY of your slow moments this summer)
- Post daily pictures of your slow summer moments on Instagram using the hashtag #showyourslow so we can all see each other’s slow moments.
- Follow along by checking #showyourslow and commenting to join in the fun!
The theme of the first week is Roots and Shoots.
What does that mean? We are encouraging you to get outside, to explore, to lie in the grass, to dig in the dirt, to plant some seeds (literally and figuratively!)
But again, you can share any of your slow summer moments!
Here’s one of my favorites so far this summer:
Can’t wait to see the ways you all #showyourslow!
