Summer 2013

If you want to have a great summer, I have a few suggestions:
  • Marry your best friend
  • Make sure he's a teacher, so you get lots of time together in the summers
  • Fit all of your working hours into three long days so that you get more days at home
  • Have an adorable and funny toddler running around your house
  • Read lots of books with your toddler and make animal sounds with him all day long
  • Drink wine
  • Go on a "date night" with your best friend that is not your husband
  • Go on a "date night" with your husband
  • Consider weekly picnics at the park
  • Push your toddler on the swing
  • Play in the gravel under the swing set
  • Have early morning FaceTime conversations with your mama and your sister (aka best friend number three)
  • Make little piles of paper-y, crafty projects and leave them all around your house
  • Drink beer on your deck after your toddler goes to bed
  • Be a mama to a sweet little beagle-mutt
  • Take daily morning walks
  • Sleep on an air mattress on your deck with your sweet beagle-mutt and give her lots of snuggles
  • Spend time reading and writing and contemplating life
  • Go to bed at a ridiculously early hour
  • Get out of bed at a ridiculously early hour
  • Spend an afternoon at the pool with your in-laws and nieces
  • Spend evenings sharing meals with your sisters-in-law, brother-in-law and nieces
  • Plan family vacations that include time with more family
  • Head to the zoo each week and shamelessly make more animal noises as you walk around and look at the animals
  • Work long hours on a few big projects that you can't wait to share with the world
  • Snuggle with your hubby and your baby and just generally love 'em up
  • Eat banana pancakes as often as possible - with chocolate chips on top, of course
  • And just generally do all of the fun and relaxing things that you can possibly fit into one summer
I think this could pretty well be summarized as: I am blessed.  And: I am enjoying summer.
