Farewell Until Fall

Like I usually do, I'm taking the rest of the summer off from the blog. I've been blogging like a madwoman this month in order to get the posts done that I wanted to do before I left, and I did it, so now I can rest and unplug for two months!


This summer I'm looking forward to seeing my family and friends, to staying in our own Cape house for the first summer ever (this will be our tenth summer in a row on Cape Cod, but the first one in our own place, and it's literally a dream come true!), and to relaxing, reading good books, eating fresh seafood, swimming in the salty, refreshing ocean water, and all the other good things that come with life in summer, my favorite season.

I'm never without a To-Do List, not even for summer vacation, because that's how I make things happen in my life!
These are some of the most important items on my Summer To-Do List:  
*Do yoga on the beach with my sister(s)
*Witness and capture a beautiful sunrise or sunset over the ocean 
(let's be realistic--it's a lot more likely to be a sunset) 
*Go on a whale watch for the first time 
*Find the perfect little owl made entirely out of seashells
*Try out stand-up paddle boarding. I think this looks so fun!


*Read a book on the beach for longer than two minutes without feeling the need to keep an eagle eye the whole time on both kids. Enlist family members to help so that this fantasy of mine will finally happen! 


I hope you have a wonderful summer, whether it involves beach days or not. 


See you in September!

Sounds so wonderful!
Will miss Blog posts but I think it is a nice tradition of yours.
I hope you guys really enjoy your beach home and that every one of those items on your to do list happens!

Sounds like a fun summer! I hope you find time to read, but it is hard with little kids to find that time. Maybe audio books would work? I'll miss your posts but it's good to take a break from blogging when you need it to recharge.
