SLOWING DOWN, TAKING TIME OUT AND RELAXING

This time of year is always very difficult for me. I find myself getting into a bit of a slump – this is my own doing since I have it drilled into my head that Spring/Summer should be magical, filled with things to do every weekend and the weather should be amazing.
