...slowing time. Seriously. I am quite uncertain how it was May yesterday and now we are on the brink of August. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE this time of year...autumn is close enough to taste...back to school is closer and closer...but I am finding that these days are passing way too quickly. I know that there is no way to stop the passage of these fleeting summer days. I know that. So, I am making a vow to do the next best thing. If time won't slow down, I will. I will make a conscious effort to slow down every single day. I will challenge myself...and this is a big one for me...to live IN the moment. To sit still and watch my kids ride bikes. To sit on the porch and just be. I will stop the planning and racing and organizing in my mind. I will use the month of August to soak in all that I can of warm days and long nights. Of littles eating ice cream cones and staying up late. Of family meals grilled outside and afternoons spent watching movies. Join me won't you? Let's slow down. And just be. : )
Here is what we have been up to the past week here in our little corner of the world...
We went to a wedding on Saturday.
And here's me smiling because we were all ready on time!
We ate yummy pie on the porch...and this little guy was all about having some too!
Have you tried the Blackberry Lemonade at Wendy's?
You're welcome. : )
We have been enjoying watching old game shows on GSN.
It is so fun!
We are loving Card Sharks and The $25,000 Pyramid. : )
New wallpaper in the laundry room.
Made me happy!
We had grilled summer meals...
and Peyton's perfect brownies too.
My little lady worked hard outside...
and then came in and had a warm bath followed by my very favorite smelling Baby Magic Lotion and fresh jammies and nighttime milk.
Happy Summer Weekend, friends!
