Almost Summer






















Life lately has been so very full.  These kiddos of mine keep me on my toes everyday.  We are so looking forward to this summer and the summer plans, oh these summer plans of ours, are in the works.  Birthdays, family trips, camps, cousins, beach and camping adventures, with the added bonus of lazy days and no homework, yes please.  

I've taken a couple trips to Utah this spring, one for a girl's weekend without kids and one for a week with just my youngest.  I love making it a priority to get away, I love seeing my Utah family and making connections with them, and I absolutely love when it is time to come home to my family.  

In my last post I shared some crafts that I have been working on.  I'm all about making things right now, I just have so many ideas, so many things I want to create.  I'm trying to create a little each day, its hard because once I start I don't want to stop.  I'm trying to squeeze in an hour here and an half an hour there, just so I can fit it in.  

Our Memorial weekend was wonderful, a family barbecue and a visit to the gravesides of loved ones, such a beautiful day together.  The weather here has been gorgeous!  We are headed toward 100 degree weather this weekend, that is insane for us in June.  

I'm trying to bask in the sunshine and ignore my allergies.  I never had allergies as a child, not until I was in my later twenties did I notice allergies and they just have gotten worse each year.  I have loved using the combination of lavender, peppermint, and lemon essential oils in my diffuser.  It has helped and I love the scent.

Now to enjoy the last couple weeks of school.  Reminding myself that it is just a couple more weeks of homework and schedules, until everything shifts to summer days. Can't wait.

Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day.  So enjoyed spending this day with my family, celebrating and honoring those that came before, our heritage and all they  have given to us.
