I actually didn't have a post scheduled for today, but I decided to pop in and just say hi. I don't do many personal posts around here, and these days most of my personal photos and updates end up on my Instagram. But I feel like the occasional check-in just to say hey is kind of important.

This summer has been bittersweet. It's been filled with travels big and small, exciting plans (baby on the way, beginning house hunting, etc.), and a lot of fun sun-drenched hang sessions with Robbie and Essley at the pool and the park (my favorite). It has also brought something very rough and scary for my family (annoyingly vague I know, but that's just how it needs to be for now, although good vibes and thoughts are certainly appreciated). It's funny though how the bad can have positive effects as well, and can genuinely bring people closer together and allow for newfound appreciations for the beauty and magic of everyday life.

As always, I'll be hanging onto the last weeks of summer with my fingertips. I love this time of year so much, and I'm grateful that it's not quite over.

How is your summer going? What's new in your life?

(Photo above from an upcoming outfit post. Yep, an outfit post. It's been a while. And this one actually contains two sets of outfits. Oh the madness. Check back for the full post next week.)



  1. Essley is turning into such a big girl. And as cute as ever :) You're lookin' good to Mama :)
    Good luck with the house hunting. And sending my thoughts for the not-so-good going on right now.
    I'm enjoying every bit of summer I can as well. I know the cold weather and holiday rush will be here all too soon. I'm getting out and having fun while I can!

  2. That is such a sweet picture. I'll be keeping your family in my thoughts. Like you I am holding on the end of summer. We get to go to our family lake house this weekend and I can't wait.

  3. Hi from India! That's an adorable picture. On your concluding thought about something bad having a positive impact - that's what it is meant to be like. I've made it a practice to not let go of something horrible that has happened to me, until I can see or derive a blessing from it. Hope you keep discovering blessings amidst the challenges you face.


  4. Sending positive vibes all the way from Germany ((hugs))

  5. Love the saying hi type posts!! Prayers and good though to your family and excited for the outfit post. =)

  6. Sweetest picture ever! Sending love to your family and hoping the rest of your summer is beautiful.

  7. Thank you all very much for your kind words. They mean a lot. xo
