My Good Life: Finding Time to Celebrate ME!

Me time.
That is something I have been craving like crazy this summer.  
Don't get me wrong.  I have a good life!  A day does not go by that I do not feel so blessed!

I have great kids...all who are growing up to be some pretty awesome adults!

I have a wonderful, loving husband to whom I've been married to for 23 years and love more today than I did the day I said "I DO."

I have some pretty great fur babies that I love from the bottom of my heart (and I'm pretty sure they love me back twice as much)!

But this summer has been CRAZY BUSY!  It began with my daughter graduating from college. With the graduation, of course, came moving.  Moving her out of her apartment at school.  Then helping her pack up all her belongings and re-locating her to Wisconsin for her job.  I am so happy that she has landed a terrific job straight out of college, but all this packing and moving and unpacking, and repacking only to unpack again has left me with little time to do much else lately.

So today I am taking some time to celebrate not only #mygoodlife, but to celebrate ME.   Enjoying life as it was meant to be enjoyed and stopping for a moment to exhale.  Of course, if I could choose any place to escape to, it would be the beach on an ocean, but since I can't just hop in my car and go there I find my very own backyard a place I can relax nicely in.  My patio on a warm summer afternoon is an oasis for me!

For me, there is nothing like an afternoon cup of coffee with my feet up, some great music on my iPhone, and a little chocolate to help me unwind, relax, and celebrate the little pleasures in life that make me realize how wonderful it all is!

Lucky for me, Skinny Cow® Dreamy Clusters Milk Chocolatey Candy and Skinny Cow® Ice Cream Candy Bars help me satisfy that chocolate craving and my afternoon sweet tooth. I was able to find them both at Walmart.

The best thing about these products?   I think for a moment I'm indulging...but I'm not. Skinny Cow® Dreamy Clusters Milk Chocolatey Candy is only 120 calories a serving and Skinny Cow® Ice Cream Candy Bars are only 160 calories a serving!

So if you happen to stop by on a sunny summer afternoon, and I don't answer the door, it's because I'm out back, with my feet up, enjoying a cup of coffee and some delicious Skinny Cow, and thinking about all the things that are great in my life!
 Feel free to come around back and join me!

Put your feet up and relax!  #MyGoodLife #shop

How about you?  How do you celebrate your good life?
