Missing that peaceful river today. Got the grocery shopping done and it feels good to have my larder stocked with fresh food and to know I can provide meals for the family this week and that there is no more travel in my future for some time. I just finished Ani McKays ‘Birth House’ and it left me shaking with its goodness and sad for all we have lost. Giving myself a to do list for the week and eating cold tangerines. I guess that is my recovery Monday in a nutshell. Happy to be home, feeding my family and my heart, missing the green. Going to brew some tea and have a nice shower and go to bed early. #posttravelrecovery #goodbook #thebirthhouse #selfcare #feedthebabies #quietday #intovertsunite #watermeloninthefridge
I finished tailoring my dress for the wedding. Shortened the sleeves, put in darts just above the waist line, took it in a little, and added ribbon to the sleeves and hem. Feeling rather proud of myself. I got nervous ordering it and got it about 2 sizes too big. Glad I did though because the tailoring turned out rad. The kind Etsy Store owner shipped my ribbon super fast and I love it! All packed now and headed to bed. My the journey tomorrow be smooth and sweet. #lastminute #bristonandkimgetmarried #weddinginthewoods #hopefullywedontmelt
These goofballs have been playing with the fan and balloons since we got back from camp. Elanor snuck my phone and took some pictures with it. I have cleaned up more popped balloons in the last two days than I care to count. Good thing they are so funny. I mean how could you be mad at that? 😂 #kidstolemyphone #balloons #summertime #beattheheat
Hot, sweaty, swollen, and gritty eyed but we made it home but my glasses arrived! I still have to unload and return the rental. There may be power words involved. #messyhairdontcare #newglasses #madeithome #stillmoreworktobedone #melting #cantdecidewhichonesilikebetter
On our way home! Camp was amazing. Lots of work and lots of hiking and lots of good old fashioned fun. I have tired and mildly cranky girls in the truck along with spilled trail mix but we are a third of the way as of this pit stop. Have a placenta waiting for me when we get home. Ahh the real world returns! More pictures to come. #montetoyon #familycamp #roadtrip
Into the woods to camp we go! I will be teaching some fabulous preschoolers at a family camp in the redwoods beginning July 1st through July 8th. There will be unreliable internet access so I will be taking a break for the week. If you need to leave me a message, please do so and I will get back to you upon our return to civilization. Planning on coming back renewed and ready to take on the rest of the summer! Hope you all have a wonderful week!
