Happy August Dreamies! It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me, and for that I apologize. Please know it’s weighed heavily on my mind. I had grand plans until I was socked with some heavy news, but I won’t get into all that today. It’s August 1st (as long as I can get through this before my sons violin concert) which means its National Girlfriends Day! Fun Fact: it’s also Spiderman Day, I didn’t know that was a thing haha! Since we are all girlfriends here (maybe?) I want to hear about your summer so far! What have you been up to? Have you taken any vacations, or has it been a low-key summer? Let me know below!
It’s been pretty low-key here, compared to others summers filled with trips all over. We started off the summer with my youngest attending a half day program through the school. It was basically providing her with support, keeping school fresh in her mind over summer vacation. Then, once that ended my son started strings camp. I’m used to only having one kid in a summer learning program, so I know eventually I can start sleeping in for a little while before school starts again. This summer, not so much!
I will say, either way, by August summer vacation starts to wear on my nerves. When the kids are at school I can focus here on the blog, I can go to my appointments without worry, I can go grocery shopping in peace! I try to keep my mindset focused on the fact that I only get so many summers with my babies, that I’m lucky to be home with them full time but I’m only human.
August is Back to School Month!
Now since it is August, that means if you haven’t already started, it’s time to get moving on the Back to School check list. I’ve been watching the sales, and comparing prices as well as taking notice of the “New Arrivals” and keeping an eye on what’s marked as clearance. I’ve got first day of school outfits on my mind, and I can’t wait to post about it! There’s also a ton of anxiety rolling around in my brain, but I’m hoping chatting with you guys will alleviate some of that. How do you feel about this time of the year? Are you excited, or filled with dread? It’s pretty conflicting for me, if I’m being honest haha.
I want to hear from you, dear Dreamers, how has your summer been? Leave me a comment below, I’d love to hear from you!
