outside my window...


Been a long time since I did this...

Outside my window...it's a balmy, fluffy cloud, warm summer kind of day.

I am thinking...about the academic year already.

I am thankful for...a little day trip with my family today.

From the kitchen...we had lunch as a family at The Pantry today.

I am wearing...a lacy tank, jeans and heels...going out in a bit for the evening.

I am creating...not enough these days.

I am going...to meet my friend, Alexandra tonight for dinner...so excited.

I am reading...Seasons of a Mother's Life.

I am hoping...for a schedule reprieve before school starts again.

I am hearing...not much. Alot of napping in the household at present.

Around the house...starting a paint and cabinet re-do project in the girls bathroom.

One of my favorite things...getting up early in the mornings before anyone else. A lovely time.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Some alone time with my middle daughter. And a pool outing with friends. Plus life long friend coming in for a quick visit this weekend.

My favorite photo today:

Gracie turns 10.

Hoping to be back later this week with a few projects and an update on meeting my blogging friend.
