School starts in one week, which means we have a whole week of summer left to enjoy! We’re planning to live it up by having a pool day or two, baking lots of cookies, having a small back to school pj party with friends, and sleeping in and watching movies on days I don’t have work. Just a bunch of normal things, but they’re our favorite things right now.
I used to get so wound up in prepping for what was ahead that I tended to miss out on enjoying the present. Ironically, two difficult years of life that were totally out of my control have helped me find a better balance of focusing on today while still trying to set my future self up for success. Our back to school prep is done (possibly the first thing I’ve had done ahead of time in approximately two and a half years) so we can have a last week of summer fun.
I’m thankful for this life and the new season coming up. There are a million reasons to be grateful. I hope your week gets off to a great start!
*Lily’s swimsuit is Pearl Street Swim, a new to me brand. It’s legitimately the cutest swimsuit I’ve ever seen in my life and that’s a strong statement coming from connoisseur of children's apparel:)
