How we do.

Friday, July 5th, 2013

Summer is cupcakes with sprinkles, rainbows and unicorns, glitter and sequins. It’s sleeping in and lounging around. We play hard and soak up every second we have with that big golden ball in the sky. We rock out to oldies, eat fruit by the gallons, and drink iced coffee like it’s going out of style! The slow cooker comes out, the BBQ gets uncovered, and the pool gets filled to the brim! Summer is friends, family, love, laughter, outdoors, suntans, the smell of coconut sunscreen, the taste of ripe watermelon, stars in the sky, amazing sunsets, painted toenails, blonde highlights, naps on the lawn chairs, tank tops, sun dresses, walks in the evening, fans blowing, popsicles for days, are you seeing my vision!?

When I was little a few Summer memories stand out above the rest. I remember long sprinklers in the yard, slip-n-slides, wearing my cousins swimsuits, playing outside ALL day, my three wheeler and lots and lots of freckles. All I remember are wonderful and happy thoughts. I love watching my girls make Summer memories. I love traditions. My dream is to start camping again. That’s all we did when I was little and it was some of the best times I remember as a kid. I know my girls would love growing up with those memories as well.

Today we have soaked in every ounce of Summer and I’m so thankful I have two of the most beautiful, sweet, and amazing little girls to share it with!

I’m pretty proud of those veggie plants! They were tiny and now they are literally taller than me… ok I know that doesn’t impress you but when a tomato plant towers over you, you feel like a pretty amazeballs gardener. IMG_4795

Summer days.

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

Today has been blissful. I woke up to a huge golden sun shining through my window directly onto my face. I kissed my two angels who were still sound asleep, made my coffee, sat outside and listened to the birds singing, headed off to get a crown on my tooth (even this didn’t put a damper on my mood) and just allowed myself to soak in the goodness surrounding me. We had our favorite girls over for some fun in the sun and pool time. I know I wont always have days like this…. I know Summer will come to an end and the cold and rain will come back (the thought makes me cringe)  but for now I can’t get enough of life.

Vin and I went to San Francisco for the weekend and left the girls with my momma. It was fabulous. I love the city. I couldn’t live there but to visit makes me feel so adventurous and alive! I love the diversity and the energy in the city. Vin spent most of the time working so I took on the city alone. I walked about 1000 miles and saw the most beautiful sights. I ate amazing food and drank amazing coffee. I took a bazillion pictures and people watched for hours. It was a wonderful. Getting home to my girls was wonderful too. I can’t be away from them too long!

Traveling is something so important to me. There is a whole world out there and I want to experience it! I hope I have the chance to do it someday.

Now for pictures!
