I tried to savor every moment.
Recently, I have begun negotiating.
Denial has been my constant companion.
Alas, acceptance has come grudgingly.
But, between you and I, this will be me tomorrow.
Why am I having such a hard time letting go?
Here are my top 5 summer memories.
1) On the night of my last day of school, my husband surprised me (and I mean we've been married for 14 years, and he has never done this kind of stuff before…SURPRISED me) with a trip to Puerto Nuevo in Baja California. I haven't been to Baja in over 9 years since all the scary news reports. But, everyone said it was over exaggerated and that things have settled down. So, I anxiously agreed to go. And you know what? We had a great time!
2) Doing WHATEVER I want - be it fun, lame, silly, pointless. It didn't matter because it was what I wanted to do at the time.
Like hiking with my buddy Jack, for instance. Isn't he cute?
Or, making homemade almond milk. Why? Because it's so good, and easy! (and because I paid an arm and a leg for that Vitamix)
I also tried new morning smoothie recipes. (Note to followers; Watercress in your morning smoothie is NOT advisable. Bleck!)
3) We took a family vacation with my Mom, Dad, and sister's family. We caravanned down to Puerto Penasco, Sonora, Mexico. It was a loooooong drive at 9 hours, but it was so worth it.
A Shell Lover's Dream!
4) I also attended the 1st Annual TPT Seller's Conference in Las Vegas.
I got to meet my Primary Chalkboard family.
Eat at 3 Michelin Star - Joel Robuchon's restaurant.
And spend some much needed alone time with my husband.
Ok, so there you have it. Now, you know why I feel like this!
And probably look like this.
You would too, if you had to go back to this tomorrow. Ugh!
I will leave that story for another day. Carry on, friends, and enjoy every minute!
