WELCOME!  I am so glad you are here.  Every Wednesday I will be sharing (1) tip to help inspire you to lead a simpler life.  It won’t be anything hard or something I haven’t tried myself.  Living a simple life is a conscious choice made up of small steps every day.  So here is our small step for today.

Week #14 – Go for a Slushy

This weeks simple tip is a result of something that happened with my girls yesterday.  As many of you know, this past week we relocated our family.  It’s been a busy week getting everything cleaned, sorted, packed and moved.  The girls have done a great job of jumping in and lending a hand wherever it was needed without complaint.

Yesterday evening, as I was sitting on the back patio, I thought it was time for an impromptu treat.  Why?  Because it’s fun and because that big and small things in our lives should be celebrated, even if it’s just with a slushy.

So I went and rounded up the family and instructed them to get their shoes on and hop in the car.  They wanted to know why, but I refused to tell them – there is something fun about surprises, even little ones like Slushy’s.  

Headed down the road they were trying to guess our destination.  I just smiled and stayed silent.

As we pulled into the local convenience store I hollered “Slushy Break!”   Cheers erupted in the car.  Can you tell my girls love a good slushy?

It wasn’t a big thing. Just a simple treat.  But you know, sometimes we just need those simple breaks and reminders in life.

So maybe it’s not a slushy, but what is one thing you can do today to celebrate the wins (big & small) in your life?

Keeping It Simple,

    We are such slushy freaks that we bought a Hamilton Beach ice shaver for when all the kids come over during the summer…and even on cold nights in the winter! 🙂 Love that you surprised them! Hope all is going well with the relocation! Nice video, BTW! Blessings from “Espressos of Faith”!
