With Labor Day weekend less than a week away, and being back to school for nearly a month now, I feel like I can call our summer over. #allthetears 😥
Summer is my jam. I love it more than any other season, even more than the one magical month that is Christmas. I never used to feel this way. Honestly, I spent most of my adult years despising summer. It wasn’t until I had “older” kids that I realized just how amazing it is. It’s a break from life, a break from text books, a break from monotony. It’s long days at the pool, tan lines, books read, late night ice cream, and abundant sunshine.
Life is better in the summer!
I find it funny that last week I planned to put together a weekend recap, but I couldn’t because we were too boring. Then this weekend I didn’t expect to write one up, but the weekend was so eventful that I felt like I had to.
If I had to pick three words to summarize this weekend they would be… a baby, friends, and family. I feel like those three things are what our weekend was completely wrapped around. And the way that those three words blurred together as one thing is nothing short of beautiful. I am so very thankful for the friends we have in our life and the friends that our friends have, that have become our friends too.
Here we are nearly two weeks into 2017 and I have yet to document anything that I want to accomplish in the new year!
Honestly this isn’t completely abnormal. Anyone that knows me well, knows that I really don’t care for New Years resolutions. In my opinion they just seem like a way to set yourself up for failure. If you want to do something, just do it! But on the other hand I do LOVE goals and January is a great time to figure out where you would like to set your focus for the next 12 months.
