hello there, friend,

yesterday, with some shock, i realized that next week is my last full week of summer. i go back to work the first week of august. this realization made me even more grateful that this week turned into a week of vacaction... that we used this week to relax and see family, that we made connection with cousins, aunts and uncles, and grandparents.

i thought, too, about all i had hoped to accomplish at the beginning of the summer... and instead of regret (which there could be plenty of), i'm choosing gratitude for what was... i'm mentally making lists of those moments i wish to hold close and making sure i savor the remaining bits by saying yes more than no and by making sure to squeeze a lot more fun into our last weeks!
