Happy summer, friends! Although the real start of the season isn’t for a few more weeks, I’m counting it as now because Memorial Day to Labor day, obviously. Bring on the rosé and s’mores. Bring on beach days and and sandy baby toes. Bring on the hot dogs and grilled pizza. Bring it all.
I spent the first half of last summer super pregnant, and the second half with a newborn, so it was basically a wash and I was so sleep deprived I don’t even remember most of it.So this year I need to make up for lost time and have some fun!
I want to be spontaneous and adventurous and show my daughter new things and new places. I want to get out more and work smarter not harder.
I want to wear flip flops everyday and dresses like this one as often as I can.
And I want to cross each and every item off of my summer bucket list.
