Summer Lovin'

I'm head-over-heels in love with this summer so far. 

And just to give you some perspective, in the last three weeks, our master shower started leaking, our toilet broke, the refrigerator started leaking, our dishwasher broke beyond repair and my van is making the most horrific sound when I turn on the AC. To most reasonable people, that does not sound like a great start to the summer. 

But I've never been reasonable. 

The girls are out of preschool for the summer, so our strict bedtime routine is more flexible and our mornings way more relaxed. 

They are getting so independent that balancing work and them isn't quite as challenging as it used to be. (Still challenging, just not the rocking-back-and-forth-in-the-closet kind of challenging) 

So, we're just doing our best to soak up these summer moments. Popsicles, snail hunting, sand castles, giggles, late-night ice cream, picnics under blue skies. 

For now, I'm blissfully happy. 

Please remind me of this five weeks from now when it's too blazing hot to go outside, my kids are whining, I have loads of work to do and I'm rocking back and forth in my closet.
