The Importance of Having Hobbies

The older I get the more I realize how important it is to have hobbies. As necessary as working is, I also enjoy time away from work to have fun. For me, I enjoy spending time blogging, coming up with different ideas to share, and having fun “photoshoots”. I also revel in cooking and baking because it brings people together. Whenever I bake bread or try a new Thai dish it’s a good excuse to invite friends over to catch up.

Something else I think is of paramount importance is having hobbies to enjoy with my spouse. Sure, my husband and I enjoy trying new cuisine and watching the latest on Netflix, but I also want us to enjoy an outdoor activity together. We each have our own sports we like to do for fun, but none that we really do together. During our trip through Europe we spent a lot of time exploring the cities via bike. We had so much fun with it we decided to try it at home. Now that we each have our own bike we’ve been going for rides together along the beach, around the neighborhood, and to the local donut shop. It’s been a relaxing way to enjoy each other’s company while getting in a little extra exercise. Even if we ride for just 15 minutes, it’s just another way to spend time together.

What are your hobbies? Do you have any that you like to share with your friends or significant other?


This is the best bike I have ever owned!


My husband’s vintage bike. I haven’t seen anything else like it on the road.
