The Library Lady Blog

Hi there, I'm the Library Lady, or Andi to most people. This blog tries to focus on aspects of self-care, complete with books, hot baths, and being outdoors or exploring around.

Good morning Internet!

Let’s get basic, shall we? Everyone loves a good self-care routine. And self-care is all of the rage nowadays. On days that I have off from work, I try to keep up with this routine to get me in the best state of mind to still have a productive day. I know, I know. It can be so difficult to motivate yourself to stay busy. But it’s gotta be done! So enough chatting on, let’s get into the fun part of this blog!

Good afternoon Internet!

In my last post, I was talking about my recent “mini-adventure” with my husband and we did an overnight in Twin Falls, Idaho. Honestly, we just wanted a little bit of normality. We made sure to socially distance, carry hand sanitizer with us at all times, and wear our masks out in public. And we actually had a blast, I’m so glad that we did it!

How much do you love to travel? For me, travel has always been a normal part of life. It wasn’t abnormal for my family to pack up on a Friday morning, skip school or take the day off from work, and go have some fun and come back late on Sunday evening. I loved it, it was so fun to go have some new experiences, especially at a young age. And living in Texas, there was a ton of places you could go for a fun weekend trip. You know, thinking about it, I might make a list of fun places in Texas and fun places to visit in Idaho…

 

Anyways! Back to the point. A couple of weeks ago, we went to Twin Falls, Idaho. Now for all of you people who don’t live in Idaho, let me break it down for you. A huge part of southern Idaho is sagebrush climate and tiny towns. No joke. To most, it might not be the most pleasant thing to travel through. I find it oddly beautiful, in its own weird way. Twin Falls is located about two hours southeast of Boise. I wanted a chance to show off some of our fun adventures with all of you. And yes, we socially distanced and wore our masks in public. 😉

If you haven’t heard of the term “self-care”… you might be living under a rock. It has skyrocketed in popularity, especially with the younger crowds. If you talk to anyone, they could have a different idea of what self-care could mean to them: coffee dates and brunch, or soaking in a bathtub with a good book. Maybe even taking a trip, or trying something totally new, like a rock-climbing class or goat yoga. (Yep, that is a real thing. Look it up!)

Whatever you decide to do, self-care is a pretty important thing, especially for the year 2020. We need a little bit of self-loving for ourselves to get out of the rut, and I would love to recommend to all of you my favorite forms of self-care. So grab your notes, pull up Amazon, or snag yourself a goat, and let’s jump into this list!
