Ever have that feeling like….ya just gotta keep swimming? Ever have that feeling so much that you actually start dreaming of swimming? That was my dream last night – with a cameo appearance of a cliff and a computer. lol! Dreams fascinate me…always have. Back in the day when I would get scholastic in school, I ordered a dream analysis book. I don’t have that book anymore, but there is a website, with a corresponding app, if you’re fascinated like me!
Here’s the deal, we only add to our plates what we put on them, what we say yes to and what we make the time to add to our lives. This month has just kinda been one of those months. Add all the sickies going around, two of my three being home from school a few days, wrestling tournaments, the never-ending dust-bunnies, and just the hustle and bustle of life….March has just called for wine, making time to decompress with friends and spending time with family. Those moments have made the craziness of March all worth it and so I (and probably you too) just keep on swimming.
I had the realization yesterday that in approximately 7 weeks or so, school will be out for summer. WHOAH! Hello!! Where the heck did the school year go and seriously glad I realized it now so I can prep (weekly summer night dates with friends and all our kids requires s’mores & refreshments, ya know)! I have an ounce of guilt, a shot of shame and I know I’m not alone when I share the thought of….ugh…soon the kids will be out of school. I probably wouldn’t have the
dread lack of enthusiasm that I do if they wouldn’t look to me every second of their waking summer lives to entertain them. Summer is a reminder, every single year, how times have sure changed. Gone are the days when mama’s would send their kids off to play on their bikes, never to see them again until dusk, when they finally come home for supper. Sigh……so, maybe I should just start planning now, for the sake of my own sanity. Who’s with me?
Onto other news, this past Saturday I photographed high school sweethearts, as they plan to say their “I Do’s” later this year. It was a “Pinterest” inspired session and I will share sneak peeks on my Facebook page and on my blog sometime this week.
Also, working on finishing up grad card designs and just finished up this video that I will be embedding on the home page of this website. I’ve been working on it off and on over the past few weeks. Check it out – you might just see you or someone you love making an appearance!
Sterling Spring Fling Vendor Fair
This Saturday there is a Spring Vendor Fair in Sterling, right off Hwy 83 at Flash’s Place from 1-6pm. I, along with two other local gals, will have booths set up for our businesses. From the list, there is quite the variety and several I had never heard of, so hopefully you can make it!
Well, I will close for now and I wish you a blessed, sunshine-filled and not-so-crazy of a week!
“In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don’t try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.”
