I was making dinner one day a few months back full of worries and uncertainties about a massive decision we were trying to make when the song ‘Just do you’ by India Arie started to play. I had never heard the song before so I played it again to really listen to the lyrics. That song helped me to make my decision.

“Just do us”

I told myself out loud in the kitchen. I felt ready to step off the treadmill, to stop conforming and to start truly listening to the needs of my family, including my own needs! So that is why I called my blog “Just doing us”. The picture was taken on our local beach using the hubby’s favourite toy, his phantom drone!
