How’s your summer going?! Frankly, I’m needing a little bit of a boost. I think of making the turn into the last month of summer as a “push” moment (as Brené Brown calls it). I need someone to yell in my ear, “PUSH!,” just as they do to mama’s in labor- ha! August is when I usually have a summer melt down… or two. Just in case you feel the same, I thought I’d share what has been giving me a little bit of a boost this summer.
I’m reading the Power of Intention by Dr. Wayne Dyer. He has the quote above hanging in his house to serve as a reminder to himself and his family that God’s got this.
This is one of my favorite lines from this hilarious article:
“If your final destination has a kitchen, you are not on vacation. You are on a trip. If you have to grocery shop before or during your time away, it is a trip. If you, at any time during your stay, have to load or unload a dishwasher, that is a Groundhog-Day-style trip. If there is a pack-and-play in your room, you are on a trip. If you are in a hotel room with two double beds, trippity trip trip.”
You guys have to read it!
I love following Mark D. Sikes on Instagram, specifically his stories. He works on some really amazing homes, and he usually shares them on stories! Also, I used to have a white wicker swing like this one. I am desperate to find one or two for my porch! If you know where I can find one, will you let me know? I will forever be indebted to you!
I found El Arroyo’s Big Book of Signs at the Paris Texas Apparel Co. store. My husband and I laughed so hard at all the different signs in this book. And guess what I found out from readers?!?! They have an Instagram account!
This game is officially the best family game night game EVER! My husband and I haven’t laughed that hard with our kids in the longest time!
