Just Breathe. And the Giveaway Winner.


I was trying to keep it calm and lazy around here as we enjoy this last week before school schedules start but as of today my plan feels thwarted.  The procrastinator in me finally got around to looking at school supply lists and penciling in school dates on the calendar.  It looks as if I'll be spending what I thought was free time for the rest of this week at Target, class lemonades, and Meet the Teacher night.  And I'll be holding my little ones extra close, for I am about to have to let them go.  Just breathe, I tell myself.

:::

Before I go, the winner of the Em bel' ish giveaway is:  Baby By the Sea!

I love a glimpse into where an artist works. So lovely and inspiring. My word would be: bliss. I grew on on Bliss Rd, and now so far from Massachusetts I center around my joys in childhood and to never lose site of the importance of bliss in our every day lives.

A huge Thank You! to Renee of Em bel' ish for being so generous yet again.

    1. Can't wait to hear how B is doing. So hard to believe our firstborns are kindergarteners.

  5. oh boy, I do relate....I didn't get any of their things until the very last possible day, and suddenly my schedule is full with school volunteer things, parent guild meetings, fall fest plans, blah blah blah, yet..... there is emptiness without my kids near...sigh. On the other hand, there is an invisible hand pushing me to the surface saying, "there is time now for something more" and I'm scared out of my wits. just breathe....yes...I do hear you my friend :).

  6. This happened to us to, as we returned from vacation right before the start of school, and now with the girls in two different schools it seems like we are doing everything twice.

    hugs for you for next week as your heart aches a little, enjoy a little "me" time.
