The Best Easter Basket Gifts

Easter is such a fun time of year. I love decorating eggs, then splitting them open, going on hunts, and of course having gifts. Baskets are super simple, fun, and easy to do. You don’t even need to spend a lot, unless of course you want to.

I have a three and half year old son, and we are to the point where he likes so much fun and different stuff… even chocolate. Who doesn’t love chocolate?? What are some of your traditions that you are doing this year? Do you keep the same traditions every year?

This year, we are doing things slightly different, but it will still be fun. I am always up for changing things a little and trying new thing, especially as my son gets older.

Five things you need to do weekly

I never had anxiety or worried until I became a mother. I mean it makes sense, but I still wonder how and why. My doctor gave me a list of things to do to help but I am who I am and I needed to find my own way to do things. 

  1. take care of yourself. Get a massage or a facial or a hair cut. I promise you that even if it is bi weekly or monthly you need to make sure to take care of yourself.
  2. detox social media when I went on vacation I literally left social media behind. Some were scheduled some weren’t. People do it all the time and you will be able to just relax and detox.
  3. do a hobby so my hobbies are music and photography. But my thing is that I make a list of new things to do. We play corn hole weekly and I never thought I would like it! It kept my mind busy and helped me enjoy something new
  4. take a walk it doesn’t matter where you go or for how long just do it. It will help clear your mind and let the stress go away
  5. enjoy a bath there is nothing more calming to me than to enjoy some music and put oils in the tub and just literally enjoy life.

Furthermore, there are things that I do daily; this helps me get through the day and push through anxiety.

  1. go sit in my hammock I literally love to watch things happen outside and enjoy the nature noises.  
  2. read the bible this has become something new to me. I used to go to church when I was younger and now I realize that I need it again.
  3. listen to upbeat music or whatever music you like that will make you feel good.
  4. keep a schedule this helps me stay focused and get things done.
  5. have a notebook I constantly write in it about my thoughts, notes, things to do, etc. This helps me again stay focused and let all my mental thoughts pass by.

What are some things you do?

Why everyone needs a vacation

I know some people say that they can’t afford a vacation but let me tell you it doesn’t have to be anything special.

You need a vacation to relax and get your mind off things. We took our first family vacation with my son this year (he’s two!) he kinda knows but doesn’t. Regardless I want to have those memories and photos.

I was sitting with my husband while my parents had Antonio and my brother were playing corn hole. It was like the deepest conversation we had in months. It wasn’t about Antonio either. I asked him if he was having fun his response was I’m relaxing and got to spend time with Antonio. As a parent you know that you don’t always get these moments together.

My heart was melting; I loved watching them at the beach. I love seeing the different faces on him as he explores. I love how he holds both our hands on the beach. I love it all and fought back a few years because of how beautiful and precious life truly is.

I don’t care if I have to work twice as hard to take a vacation; this is better than any tangible gift you can ever give. Even if your child might not remember it, you will have the memories and photos to share it as they get older. It does more than this though you can clear your mind and have a great time away from life.

My goal is to take a leaf one vacation a year. I think about it like this… think of how much we spend on tangible items instead of the memories and time together…. we could fix that and actually be able to all afford a vacation.

When is the last time you had a vacation?
