Quiet + Slow Festive weekends. Your ideas.
At this time of year there is alot to be thankful for, but the pressure to be doing something every weekend and creating new traditions can start to feel overwhelming. We talked about this on Instagram and so many of you got in touch to say you'd started to feel pressure to be doing more. Of course, when we all step back and ask ourselves do we actually need to be doing these things, do they bring us joy, contentment and fulfilment? We made discover that infact we need to start rethinking what our favourite type of festive weekends could look like.
We asked you to share your favourite slow and quiet festive weekend ideas.
