Thank you.

It's been one of those off weeks, so I've decided to remind myself of how many reasons I'm thankful...

I'm thankful for:


  • Friends & family near and far connecting via social media, Skype, and text!!!
  • Better - manageable news from a dear friend
  • Fall nights and crisp sunny days
  • Giggles from dancing in the living room
  • The ability to walk to so many places from our home
  • Hugs and kisses
  • The improvement of "please" and "thank yous" in our house
  • The excitement behind Halloween planning in our house
  • A nap happening today! First time this week
  • New recipe for me that was beyond delicious
  • Going to bed early last night
  • Watching our girl with her friends
  • A full week of preschool 
  • Patience
  • My Man

Bye Bye Summer 2013



Wait? Summer is over?

 It just got sunny. It just became warm. Our girl was just starting camp. Vacations were quickly approaching...

And now it's the evening before our girl's first day of her 2nd year of preschool.

Halloween cards are in the drug stores.

Spiders are weaving their crafty webs.

Trees are starting to turn slightly.

But I'm not ready to wave goodbye. I want to hear the surf, sand under my toes, and enjoy our long days. On my vision board for 2013 - it reads "Live Aloha" and "take Summer with me every day" - so here's to my self made mantras.

I'll keep you posted on how I keep the sand on my toes and not in my house.
