Sweet family time
Throwback: DIY Spa tips
Hello! Is it Monday already?!
A week ago Sunday, Justin + the boys and I flew up to Illinois and then went straight to my parents’ lake house in Wisconsin. Justin left mid-week for a work trip and the boys and I stayed until friday, when my sister flew back with us.
It was the most relaxing vacation we’ve had since having the boys. Part of that was my mind set, and part of that was the boys’ age. They did great (GREAT!) on the airplane and slept perfectly in a new place the whole week. I couldn’t have asked for a better time with family.
The older I get, the more I dislike how far away I am from my immediate and extended family. While I’m grateful to live near my in-laws, I do wish we were all closer for more casual times together, like “c’mon over for breakfast”, you know?
Anyway, other than the fun from the week + weekend with my sister, I have to admit it was nice to step back from social media + e-mail for the time as well. I checked on a few things, but I intentionally wanted to take this past week to clear my head a little bit and recharge for what will likely be a full + busy fall!
But I missed y’all. Also, I said “y’all” to the hostess at Giordano’s in Chicago so that was a first for me. It didn’t even register that it was coming out of my mouth, it felt so natural.
I guess 10 years in the South will do that to you.
I am getting back into the swing of things around here and also on snapchat (K8_smallthings), and it feels good to have a little more excitement than usual about getting back to work.
Hope your Monday is good to you, regular content will be resuming very shortly.
