Snaps from Summer

Today is the official first day of summer you guys - aka the most wonderful time of the year. It's already felt like summer around here for a few weeks though, so I thought I'd stop in and share a few  pictures I've snapped with my phone of us (well, mostly Essley; Emmett isn't quite old enough to run around in the sunshine yet) just taking in summertime in all its glory. I feel like it had been so long since I'd really allowed myself to enjoy my favorite time of year, because I'd always been so busy trying to squeeze in work during the days, everyday. But a funny thing happened when I had Emmett, and suddenly I found myself working from home with not one, but two children - I very quickly gained some serious time management skills. And while I'm certainly not spending everyday outside basking in the summer sun, I make sure that I stay ultra focused and organize my schedule so that I'm spending a couple days a week being as present as possible, savoring those special activities that can really only be done during the summer months. I hope you're able to do the same. (You can see more of our summertime adventures here.)



  1. Sweet pics! Looks like Essley enjoys summertime as much as you do :) Fingers crossed that we'll be getting some much needed sunshine too!

  3. I've been staying caught up with work everyday so when Jesse says "let's go boating" I'm ready to roll!
    Emmett is getting so big already! And Essley's swimsuit with the tutu is Adorable!
    Yay for Summer!!
