Welcoming Summer

Skittles

There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things
we crave most in life — happiness, freedom, and peace of mind — are
always attained by giving them to someone else.
(Peyton Conway March)

I’m welcoming summer with open arms.

The first half of this year has been rocky, but I can feel change coming. The shifting seasons and passage of time bring a reminder that everything we experience is fleeting. Moments of joy, heartbreak, struggle, celebration—all temporary. It is both a gift and a curse. It is the magic of this experience we call life.

I’m welcoming summer with open arms.

The next few days I plan to cultivate my ideal outcome for the next 6 months. When the year comes to a close, how do I want to feel? Who do I want in my life? Where do I want to be? What do I want to have accomplished? How much money do I want in my bank account? What goals do I want within my reach?

I’m welcoming summer with open arms.

From the silly to the serious, I am ready. This is the season of fresh roots & uprooting. The season of trying new things and embracing old favorites. My mister and I will celebrate his 27th birthday and our 3rd year together. Family will visit. Our closest friends will become parents to a brand new baby boy. We will see summer blockbusters, sip wine, lay by the pool and enjoy the warmth of the sun.

How are you welcoming summer?
