Happy summer. If you’ve hung around these parts for a while, you know I’m a fan of sunshine and no school and lazier summer days. But this summer started out pretty busy for us. After 18 years in the same house, we moved to a different home in Colorado Springs. It required quite a bit of work (which is ongoing 🤣) and wow! Moving is a lot of work. God bless those of you who do it cross country! I shared a few moving pics in my last newsletter, which you can check out here.
Honestly, it feels as if summer is going by way too fast, especially with getting settled and finishing up projects on the new house. I have had more than a few moments of feeling overwhelmed, inadequate and of questioning what we were thinking. 🙂
I had this blog already written last week with a few summer snapshots to share with y’all, but just like social media, it felt as if they were only giving a small picture instead of the real/big picture–only showing the good. And while I don’t have photos of my stress levels so far this summer, I guess I just wanted to be real. Change isn’t the easiest for me. I wish I was better at it! But we’re thankful our heads are above water, we’re thankful for the new house, the quiet neighborhood and sweet neighbors.
So, below are a few pics from our summer so far. My hope is to squeeze in a lot more fun in the next month before the kids head back to school!
