Can anyone else totally relate to loving what we do, and all the roles we juggle every day, but sometimes just needing a moment? I am often just so busy taking care of the kids and making sure the house is clean that I go through my entire day without just taking a moment to pause. I was given the chance to work with Pepperidge Farm® Milano® cookies and their focus on taking time to enjoy the present and give yourself a chance to breathe, encouraged me to savor a moment in my busy day. Enjoying one of my favorite cookies would be a great transition to a calm state of mine. And eating one cookie is just the thing I can fit in and savor during my busy days as mom and wife…
Savor the Moment with Milano Cookies
Pepperidge Farm® Milano® cookies have always been a favorite of mine. So many yummy choices. I headed to the store and picked up 3 of my favorite flavors to encourage myself to take a moment during my busy day and enjoy something for me. Sometimes even when the kids are at school, I am so busy cleaning up, working from home, and trying to remember what I need to do next that I never take a minute to breathe. We all need a moment to ourselves, right? A moment to savor each day.
Having my bags of cookies in the house gave me that reminder to take a moment and pause in my day. I was running around doing what I always do while the kids are gone and one naps: cleaning, laundry, writing… I stopped to grab a cookie and went and took a few minutes on the couch. It was nice to have a mind state change and then get back to the grind.
Another day, baby brother even got to enjoy a moment with me. While the big boys were playing and he was following me around while cleaning up and prepping meals we got down on the floor and shared a Milano cookie. It was fun. A nice pause in my busy afternoon. Just what I needed.
One day I sat the cookies out on the counter so when I rushed past them sweeping, grabbing paper towels… I decided to stop and take those few minutes I needed for myself that day.
