a wonderfully relaxing june arrived as a breath of fresh air after an incredibly busy may. we were able to get the boat out a few times, nightly walks became a ritual, and work even seemed to settle a bit. june treated us well.
and just like that the year is half over. it’s true that as you age each year seems to go faster than the last. although it’s cruising by i can’t help but want it go a little quicker. 😉 before it does i’m enjoying some of summer’s simple pleasures – colorful blooms, fresh produce, warm weather, sweet sunshine.

‘she’s pampered’, ‘sunday funday’, ‘too hot pink to hold ’em’, ‘rock at the top’
|no fuss boat hair = dirty hair + top knot + forever21 headband|
|garden fresh tomatoes….next year i WILL have my own plants|
|because mom was here and we couldn’t help ourselves|
despite my best of intentions i feel like i’m behind in crafting our summer 2015 bucket list even though summer doesn’t officially start for a another week. i’d blame it on the weather but it’s been pretty wet… now more than ever i’m committed to doing some fun things this summer before cody and i’s lives change in a big way. nothing crazy here just some things i’d realistically like to do over the next couple months.
2. visit the farmer’s market and eat whatever i want
3. host a backyard bbq
4. attend a concert – preferably outside
5. master a mocktail that leaves me feeling satisfied not cheated
6. hang pictures in our master bedroom…it’s only been 2 years!
7. go on a progressive dinner date downtown
8. finish reading ‘the happiest baby on the block’
9. leave work early and go to the pool
10. spend an entire day in bed
11. make a toy and treat ice block that allie can enjoy on an extra warm day
12. take a one day photography class
it’s true that most women know more about pregnancy, birth and babies by the time they’re in junior high than i do at 29. my saving grace has been all of the other moms in my life, especially those that i am closest to who aren’t afraid to tell me like it is. thank you…well kind of.
is this real? then I wake up sick and am quickly reminded that, yes, this is real.
motherhood expectations are high these days….i better be realistic.
