Adventure Challenge – Day 71: The Perfect Day

To be honest, my perfect day could change depending on timing, my environment, etc. I decided this week to give myself as perfect as a day as I could. There are a few things I absolutely love. My kiddo and my art are top on that list. My perfect day would absolutely incorporate both of those.

I started my day by being woken bright and early by my son. He always crawls into my bed when it’s time to get up and we have a short cuddle fest before he decides he’s hungry and is ready to go downstairs. I enjoy these snuggles more than most things in life.

When we ventured downstairs, I got the opportunity to cuddle some more on the couch, play a game with him, and drink my coffee while my love made us breakfast. It was a slow calm morning. I love those.

My sons father wanted him for the day, so I drove him over and then headed to the art studio. It was great getting to play in the art studio again. I painted some sides, wired some paintings, did some rearranging and then got pieces ready for a show.

After a few hours I was starting to get hungry so I headed to a quaint little coffee shop near my studio. I ordered a sandwich, an iced latte (my favorite), and a brownie. I decided I needed some adult time so I asked my love on a date.

When I got home I had enough time to go for a run. I was pleasantly surprised that my love wanted to join me. We had a nice jog on a trail behind our house. Then we returned to get ready for our date. It turned out to be a double date with the new neighbors. It was a great dinner and drinks with a brilliant electrical storm in the background.

 We drove home in the rain. This day was just as about as perfect as it could be. It had all of the elements for being amazing. It’s a sum of all the little things that can really make a day count. Sometimes we just have to stop and appreciate what we have so we recognize it.

 What would your perfect day look like?
