It's So Not Over Summertime, What I Know For Sure & #iPPP

Yeah, I've seen it happening--advertisements for back to school, Halloween decorations, bathing suits on the clearance rack (mostly mismatched bikinis).  It's happening.  It has to happen.  Fall is coming.  The sun may be setting on summertime, but I am not done.  Not yet anyway.

No, there is still summer fun to be had--lightening bugs to catch, pools to be jump in, beaches to roam, baseball to play.  No, summer I am not done with you yet, it is so not over.

I know for sure that Fall has to happen, so I am going to make the most of every single summertime moment I have.

Here's what else I know for sure (this week):

  • Marriage is hard, but I have a really good one and I feel so happy.  Tim and I celebrated our wedding anniversary this past week, lucky number 13, with a dance on our front porch.

  • People need to sing and dance a little more, everywhere.  To feel happier you should watch SoulPancake's YouTube videos.  They are full of joy.  Here's one with the most fun elevators evah.

  • Our world has been off the last week because Super Lucy was at camp.  Today is the day I pick her up and I.Can't.Wait.

We were all a little lost with out our wonder girl.  I mean, come on, every moment is an adventure with her.  You never know what she will dream up or even wear to dinner (here she is last week complete w/my old prom dress and many accessories).

  • I'm going to miss my front porch while I'm gone the next week and a half.  Here's the set up for a painting party Lucy had with friends before she went to camp.  So fun.

  • Traveling alone with four kids can be overwhelming.  If you missed it, here's how I prepare to take this circus on the's called denial.

What do you know for sure (this week)? C'mon, we're friends, share what you know. Are you enjoying summertime? Leave a comment here or on the Facebook page.

Check them out.



  1. This summer has seriously FLOWN by. I blame it on the crazy wasn't even hot enough to swim until the beginning of July. Unheard of!! And today, I think it got up to 70 or 75, while we were BACK TO SCHOOL SHOPPING. Seriously?! The kids have three weeks left before school starts, I believe. That's not long enough.

    I hope you're having a great trip! I can't wait to hear all about it.

  2. I cannot believe how fast this summer has gone. I LOVE the picture of your dance on the front porch.
    And the Halloween stuff out already - crazy!
