This summer was...

Summer is good.
But in this house, summer is glorious. 
For two school teacher parents and two school-age boys, summer around here means nine weeks of "What do you wanna do today?" 
And because we did not go on any possibly life-altering trips this summer, we had a lot of time to sleep in, stay up late, and just play.

This summer was...

...camping and surfing

...first-time-ever Zoo Camp

...motel sneak-aways

...boat days with friends

...spontaneous baby turtle sightings

...finally getting the big projects done water park days bonding over penguins

...never too old for matching birthday drinking shirts

...summer bucket list ice skating

...growing up on the beach 

 ...surprise manatee visitations while SUPing

 ...finally shooting hoops in the front yard

We are ridiculously lucky.
We know this.
But we also know that life's too short to just play for one season. 
So, in an attempt to celebrate what's coming instead of mourning what's ending...

This Fall will be...

...back to healthy(-er) eating and gym mornings
...the blessed type-A sense of calm that comes with routine
..."This Is Us" new episodes
...using Thursdays as an excuse for wine
...using Fridays as an excuse for Happy Hour
...regular paychecks
...Epcot Food and Wine trips more go at Disney in the RV
...the holidays (Halloween is right around the corner and before you know it, hello!'s Christmas!)
...falling asleep on the sofa by 8:45
...looking forward to the weekends to go out and play!

  1. I'm so glad you posted and that all is good in your world! I'm looking forward to fall just for the cooler weather. But not ready to think about Christmas yet!
