Ever feel like life should come with a pause button? Summers usually make me wish for one because it’s both one of my busiest seasons and also the time of year when I most yearn for a break. While I love having tons of work, the sunshine and warm weather call to me! So today, I’m grateful for outdoor living. Having space in my own home where I can hide out from my computer, emails, and calls—and just pause. There is something beautifully peaceful about sitting in silence on the patio, sipping my coffee while listening to the birds singing their songs. Even if I can only sit out here for a few minutes, it really helps me decompress and recharge. Where do you go, or what do you do when you need a pause?
