Who could use a little recipe for relaxation? It's been a long year. Am I right? School's out for summer in my neck of the woods and that last day couldn't have come at a better time! I sure could use a break from all the hustle and bustle of the school year. No more school functions, homework, after school activities etc. It's time to breathe. Well, it's time to breathe a little. The kids are home ALL day now after all. Haha! And since our first summer vacay isn't for a few weeks, mama needs a little help decompressing. So, I'm going to share with you my easy 2-step recipe for relaxation. Because I know I'm not the only parent who's been through the ringer this year!
