Seven Summertime Moments

Lots of things happening around here and I just want to share my random thoughts as well as some of the moments that are making this a great summer.

  1. Loving our local farmer’s market this year and the fresh goodies each week.  It’s not a big market, but the vendors are always so nice and I love the opportunity to buy locally.
  2. Tater Tot, the hubby and myself loaded up and went to the beach this past weekend.  It was an eye opener traveling with a 1 year old but it was so nice to see the water and the beach.
  3. I have been carving out more time to read some fun fiction this summer.  I highly recommend the Emperor series by Conn Iggulden.
  4. Tater Tot had his first official play date.  It was quite entertaining to watch two little ones with such different personalities “play.”
  5. Mom and I started our own “Breakfast at Wimbledon” tradition.  We love good tennis matches and the traditions of Wimbledon are enjoyable every year.
  6. Taking quick dips in the pool.  I can’t exactly hang out at one for hours with a toddler, but it’s nice when we get the opportunity even if it’s just 30 minutes.
  7. Slowly redoing our guest bathroom.  I could never make it as a DIY blogger because I take way too long to finish a project.  My goal…have this project finished by the end of August.  Fingers crossed!

These are just a few things that have been going on this summer and we are only in July.  I truly feel that I have been able to slow down certain aspects in order to enjoy more time with my family as well as create some really fun memories!

xo, Lauren
