One more important point on recreating yourself (October 1, 2011 blog post): Recreation is necessary, travel is often revitalizing, and good food and drink can refresh a weary soul. But there's one thing that I'm certain I can't live without and that's the company of family and good friends.
The House of Tystad has been fortunate enough to have spent some time lately enjoying some of our favorite things with some of our favorite people. The weekly schedule has been tight, but the weekends are reserved for enjoying relationships with people who renew our spirit. I owe a lot to family and the friends I've known through the years and I make a point to savor the moments we get to spend together.
Seasons come and seasons go, but if you don't get out there and carve a pumpkin with the family or hoist a glass with your friends once in a while you may one day regret not doing it. Enjoy your weekend.
