Word of the Week – Quiet

This post may contain affiliate links.

Each Friday, I would like to share a word of the week with you. Something that summarises what I’ve been up to, how I’ve felt and how life is generally going. I’d love if you’d share one in the comments. It can be so therapeutic to reflect on what’s been happening, good or bad!

This week I have chosen the word Quiet

The past few months of my life have absolutely flown by. A number of big things have happened and I’m pleased to say they were all very positive. Getting married, disappearing on my honeymoon for two weeks to Italy and renovating the bathroom after almost three years of yucky tiles are just a few!

It’s been wonderful, but as often happens when some areas of life become very busy, others have been a little quiet. Unfortunately my blog took the hit and has been left to fend for itself since May. I actually saw a tumbleweed roll across the screen when I logged in this morning…poor thing.

I really can’t complain of course. We can’t possibly expect to do everything with full gusto can we?

Well now the tables are turning and as my life moves from the hectic back to the quiet, Sunshine and Rain can come out of the shadows again. As an introvert I value the quiet moments just as much as the excitement. For me a cosy Sunday in with my husband (hehe, still feels weird to say) is just as enjoyable as all those big moments. Now that life is quiet again I am back in my comfortable environment and enjoying the slow pace once more!

There is so much more I want to share with you, but I shall leave that for another post.
