I love the summer lists that lots of bloggers complete
with their young children…….
But I have tween and teen girls who need no reminders
to make s'mores or have sleepovers or go to the beach.
And truth be told…..if I allowed it, my entire summer would
revolve around nothing else than ensuring my girls
are entertained 24-7……..
Of course, I want my girls to have a great break
but this momma also needs some summer fun too!
I really believe all mothers, no matter the age of your children,
need to take time for themselves, do something you love,
learn something new, get a pedicure, go out with your girlfriends,
go on a date with your husband, exercise……..
Here's some items on my personal summer list:
Sadly, I don't read as much as I would like. I tend to purchase books
and stack them on my nightstand…..I am determined to do some reading
this summer….some I would like to start with are pictured above.
Summer flea markets are always a favorite activity!
Have you heard of SoulCycle? This is Portland's version
and I am hooked! I have been going to a cycle
class at this Pearl District studio at least once a week
since May and I will continue during the summer!
As I have
gotten older matured I have enjoyed learning
new things. I signed up for this online class and intend to
learn Illustrator - something I have always wanted to do!
And of course, I hope to spend some time working on both
'form' and 'function' in a some areas in my own home!
I spent the last year working on so many great client projects
but I hope to tackle some important areas in my own home
Wishing all of you some opportunities to make
time for YOU this summer!
