We’re just two short days away from the official start of summer, hooray!! And while the part of me that has been longing for warmer weather and extended hours of sunlight is happy for it to finally be here, there’s another part of me that can’t help but be nostalgic, and even wistful, for the freedom felt in the summers of my youth. They weren’t anything extravagant, far from it in fact. But the relaxed attitude and carefree vibes are what I miss most. Being a grown up with a full time job kinda sucks the fun out of it, and makes it hard to achieve those summers of yesteryear that I long for.
There are 11 weekends (including this weekend) left until the start of spring on March 20. If weather permits, of course you can go sledding, skiing, snowboarding, make a snowman or have a snowball fight, etc. Or if the spirit moves you, you can go ice skating. But I don’t particularly like being cold, lol, so I’m putting together a list of 11 warm activities to get you through the rest of the cold winter!Continue reading “11 Activities For Winter Fun”
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve! And I’m so NOT ready..!
As is tradition, my dad and I will be going shopping for my mom tomorrow. If you missed my post about my favorite Christmas traditions (including the Christmas Eve shopping excursion), you can check it out HERE. Though, this year I’m a little nervous that my anxiety will get the better of me. Plus, we have NO idea what to get her, hahaha… okay, I lie, we have ONE idea…
Today is the last day of fall. What?? Wayyyy back on September 1st, I posted a list of 31 things to make fall more fun and festive. You guys. I checked off five things, five! Whomp, whomp… lol
So much for having a list to inspire me to make the most of the season, huh? But the point wasn’t to do all 31, but to inspire and have an assortment to pick from. I just expected I would have checked off more than five…
How is it already September 1? Where did August go? Where did the summer go?? I know technically it’s still summer, but there’s something about the arrival of September that flips a switch for me. Once this long weekend is over, it’s a different season in my mind. On Tuesday, I’ll have to drive through a 15mph school zone…enough said.
