The best one yet….
Hello Blog Friends!
I’m sure you’re wondering what the heck ever happened to me. I went off grid without saying a word. I apologize for that…and at the same time have to say I loved the freedom and completeness that I could give to my family. It’s so easy to get caught up in the craziness of the internet. I didn’t even realize until I let it go for 2 months.
What is summertime like for you? Do you allow yourself an Internet fast? It’s a little scary. Until you do it…and then it’s freeing.
Already the kids are back in school. I feel that bittersweet pang of wishing that we could continue on and have summer forever and knowing that my kids were ready for school to start, ready to see friends, ready to get back to a routine.
I have so much I want to tell you, photos and photo shoots I want to share, and thoughts that are whirling around in my head. The first few days that the kids go back to school my mind is a jumble and I walk around in a fog wondering what to do with myself…knowing that I need to create a routine for myself and realizing I should have done that weeks ago so I’d be ready for this day. I don’t do it though because it seems like a plan, thinking that direction, will break the magic spell that summer has weaved.
“Summertime is always the best of what might be.”
So this is me saying I’m back from dreamland, back from the magic of non-stop familyness and back to everyday familyness. Knowing that everyday familyness is super awesome bringing with it a sense of security and happiness that non-stop familyness is missing. Until next summer I’ll daydream about our happy road trips and morning adventures.
In the meantime, I’ll wake my warm and sleeping kids from their beds at 6am, shaking them from their dreaming and the fairy dust to put on school clothes…
Goodbye, sweet summer. I will miss you.
*don’t think you’ve heard the last of summer…I’m not quite ready to let it go completely…
