i can't possibly be the only one who has this sort of meloncholy feeling that summer is quickly slipping behind us? between labour day safely back there as in "last weekend" and the kids filling the schoolyard across the street, i can't understand how we are already here again! a new year beginning - i've never been able to shake the "back to school" is the beginning of the year thing... no matter how many years i've been out!
i made the commitment to not get caught up in things "to do" this summer but i did have two small items that i just can't live with myself if i don't actually finish before labour day hits - because honestly, june's going on 15 months in september and i didn't go through the motions of setting up this photo shoot every month (....ok, like every month and a half...)
I seemed to have forgotten that there are only 30 days in April. And all of a sudden it was May. At the risk of sounding super cheesy, I like the possibility that May holds. It's time to plant. It's time to watch stuff grow. It's June's last month of her first year and we're going to plan a birthday party. We're looking at some holidays and planning out the summer. It feels like a good month to regroup and reprioritize.
Wow we’ve had a lot of rain in the past 24 hours!! On Saturday night I took the dog for a walk around 9 pm and it was almost warm enough to open my jacket. The christmas lights, the huge puddles and the warm weather just have me so confused about what time of year it is. (It doesn’t help that I have to consult my phone on a regular basis to see what day of the week it is. Motherlife, am I right?!)
know I haven't blogged in forever but I couldn't let today go by without marking it somehow! In case this wasn't obvious, the logistics of blogging are significantly more complicated with an infant. Never before have I wanted to blog more - to write it all down so my foggy, sleep deprived brain remembers the details- and never before have I been less able to find five minutes to do so! I hope that changes because there really are so many things I want to say.
