i got in a ton of new fabric this week. a TON. and i am loving it all. my wrists? notsomuch. i have been spending hours upon hours cutting all this prettiness up into little bits to make the most beautiful products. but my wrists hate me and have decided today to boycott. so i’m taking a break.
while on one hand we’re trying to relax on our last week of summer, we’re also trying to squeeze in as much fun as we can: days at the beach, days at the pool, drive-ins (hello kids sleeping past 9 am!). i love summer. it is made for memories.
if you know my husband, you know this about him: whatever he does, he does it well. he can do any sport and do it well. he can sell anything to anyone. he is the best friend in the world (to lots of people. he’s really great at relationships). and he makes beer. now, i am not a beer fan but from those who are, they say his beer is actually really really good. he’s happy being all crafty with his beer. and he doesn’t make the stinky beer in my kitchen, so i’m happy ;)
i have been reading this book since the week we spent at my parents’ boat in july. actually, i haven’t read this book since that week. i am a horrible reader! but… this book. ann voskamp has wisdom that speaks to me. and my heart needs to hear what she has to say. so much good. but when you have the cutest little monkey hiding out by your toes, reading tends to go by the wayside.
i love my boy. he challenges me more than i ever thought possible, but loves me so passionately. we are having reading battles. actually, he says no and i say ok. but i am remembering that we went through this with my oldest and she devours books now. thank you to all my insta friends who gave such wonderful, encouraging advice. just another reason why i love instagram.
i did this yesterday. i ran. it has been a long time. a looooooooong time. and i was shocked, you guys. i didn’t hate it! i didn’t love it either, but not hating it was a really big deal. i used to run pretty regularly and i never got past the hating it part. so i’m seeing that little short run as a big gift.
i shared about this special place yesterday.
i am blessed to have a special decor job at our school (yes, we homeschool, but also go to school 2 days a week. read all about it here.). every trimester i get to add fun new decorates in the office area and make it fun and happy! i usually go with some sort of a theme, but this time i basically went with “party!!!”.
we’re enjoying our last weekend of summer with family in town and some extra time with friends. next week we’ll be trying out or new normal and getting back into the swing of things with school in session. i’m happy sad about it!
have a wonderful weekend, friends!
