i asked dan, “my word, how long has savannah been gone?”. “forever” was his response.
seriously though, she’s having a life changing summer. that’s for sure & seems to be truly loving all of it!
she left 7 weeks ago & it truly does feel like forever ago. we leave for our
holy week vacation on saturday. for a while we didn’t think she was going to be able to come. cry me a river. like dan was already giving me the “you know there’s going to be some vacations where we won’t always be together….” talk. but what mom is every really ready for that to begin? we aren’t a ski in the winter, disney world for spring break, lake for memorial day kinda family. we head to the gulf coast every year since dan & i married and honestly we start counting down the sleeps, sometimes in january. so thinking of being on vacation without all my girls was going to be a tear jerker for all of us really. but the lord showed up big time and made a way ( through a very generous & loving friend) and a little budget maneuver for savannah to come in for a few days! so in 7 days i’ll finally see my sweet girl!!
since i’m a good two months behind in a little “life lately” update, i’ll annoy you and share a little of life before she left. (i’ll insert here, if i didn’t have two businesses that rely heavily on a few sources of social media, such as blogging, i might close it all down and just instagram. can i get an amen?)
we lunched. sometimes with famous people like big mama & boo mama.
we cooked healthy things like delicious fish tacos
& sometimes we ate at waffle house. in flannel. it was chilly here in may.
we saw fun friends like rockstar tara ( sorry savnnah for the blink shot). i love it when my daughters fall in love with my friends and then they become real life friends who hang out & drink coffee on a regular basis.
we went to the Braves. one of my most favorite things to do in the whole world. ( emily was there, she just wasn’t in the photo mood at the time of the picture).
we went to church together & one day i wanna journal as cool as savannah does.
we celebrated mother’s day & little bit crafted me a camera made out of a diet coke can. how cool is she?
we took spin together.
because of said spin class and living at the gym monday through thursday mornings, i’m down 17 pounds.
we’ve tried out new pizza joints.
we’ve kept fresh flowers in the house with weekly trips to trader joes.
we’ve done a little shopping.
we’ve tried to talk dan into getting his own gadget. he now has an iphone & has joined instagram.
a couple more things. a few of ya’ll have emailed & asked if it’s too late to join my ecourse. not at all!! remember to first join jeanne’s site, which is free. she’ll send you a ” you’re in email” and then you can join whatever $10 courses your heart desires. mine is on fashion & style. you can read a little more here.
one of the sweetest, most creative bloggers is teaching a course on the art of beekeeping! anne marie has offered to gift one of you a seat on her course. please leave a comment stating that you’d like to be entered for the course & i’ll get in touch with you friday!
thank you anne marie!
so maybe we can call “blogging two months later” something more charming like “blogging. summer style”. i mean really who really cares right? i’ll be sharing madison’s prom…also from may….soon too!
