Hello there, friend,

This morning I finally washed the weekend off of me. It was one filled with family and travel and lots of sunshine. We swam and the moms drank sangria and the wind blew our hair all over the place. The kids bounced in the lake, and I got a sunburn despite all the sunscreen. Both nights, I collapsed into bed and was asleep before my head hit the pillow. Thank you, summer, for finally showing up.

But today is Monday and with it comes a bit of a reality check: summer camp, laundry, and painting the living room. I am half-tempted to sit on the couch and drink iced coffee all day, but I have to keep chugging along, even if the exhaustion from the weekend hasn't quite worn off yet. I'm feeling extra grateful this morning, and ready for this week!
