Since buying a house and deciding to do some major renovations, my husband and I have found less time to play together. We used to travel, hike, explore and create on a regular basis. We are in a different season of life now and I found myself searching for new ways to be playful. When I thought about the purpose of play for children, I came to a new understanding for myself. I had to consider what would provide me with expression, understanding and an escape? How could I find joy and relief from stress when life had become so busy?
Personally, I can find these things through the retreat that is about to be my patio. This is a place Jared and I can enjoy the beautiful weather, take a break from the craziness inside our home and spend quality time together. We decided to start with chairs that would offer the quickest opportunity for retreat. I cannot wait to share our new play space when it's finished!
Where do you find relief from stress and an escape from the craziness of life?
