5 Things Laura Loves

When people ask me what I think of when I think of happiness.  My answer is always cooking at home, eating and drinking with friends and family, eating healthy, working out, and getting enough “me” time.  This week, I did something that is so hard for me.  I said no.  I didn’t give excuses or lied, I just said no because I needed time for myself.  I always feel like everyone (including myself) is always in a rush.  I decided I would take this week to slow down, get rest, cook at home, read, and take long walks through the park.  It was the best decision I ever made.  Sometimes, I need to chill out to remember the reasons why I’m working so hard and the dreams and goals I want to achieve.  I hope you will take some time for yourself to recharge.  In the meantime, these are the thing I’ve been lovin’ this week.
