Happy Memorial Day!!!
Thank you to all those who have served our country!
That's something I bet they never get tired of hearing and none of us say often enough so it's nice to be reminded to be thankful and more than being thankful to express that thankfulness.
Living on the East Coast most of my life meant that Memorial Day seemed to frequently be accompanied by rain. It never failed the first weekend the pool was open the weather wouldn't cooperate. Go figure.
I hope wherever you are today you'll have gorgeous weather and be able to enjoy it.
And this time time we're talking about what we have planned for the summer months.
Our summer is going to be pretty much all about KATIE!!!
This girl right here graduates in less than 2 weeks...TWO WEEKS!!!
YES!!! She's sooooo excited and also sooooo ready to BE DONE. I'm here to tell ya' they are working these kids right to the bitter end.
As soon as she graduates we head to Nashville for a week for her registration. We will likely squeeze in some shopping for her dorm room and leave stuff there to be ready for her in August as well as see friends, lay by the pool and eat some good Mexican food.
This summer is going to FLY by. I have a feeling it will be the fastest summer of our lives. I want to try to soak in every single second. After August 14 our lives will forever be changed, not in a bad way, just in a very different way.
It is going to be so strange for Kent and I to get on a plane and come back to California to an empty house with no more kids. We haven't lived alone in over 21 years and honestly it's hard to remember our lives before our children were in them.♥
Our friends who have already made this transition assure us it is GREAT! I sure hope they know what they're talking about, ;)
Katie and I are going to make a trip to Minnesota in July for a week to visit her best friend and some of our friends from when we lived there 3 years ago.
This is Kylie and she's such a sweetie. She is the Yin to Katie's Yang.
She's easy going, slow talking and low key.
Katie on the other hand is intense, fast talking and full of energy.
They go together like peanut butter and jelly.
These two girls are just such sweet friends and we can't wait to get together and have some fun.
And BONUS, Kylie's mom and I are friends too!
Once we return from Minnesota we'll have a couple of weeks at home and then it will be time to pack Katie up and head for college. My head just about spins when I think about how quickly that time will come.
What are YOUR summer plans? Feel free to shout out in the comments and let me know.
Enjoy this Memorial Day and a four day week!
