The past season has been full of incredible highs: A South African adventure, a peaceful seaside escape with my husband, new experiences for and with my daughter. And as I looked to the balance of the summer calendar, I was tempted to keep the momentum going. Why not take advantage of the lull of August to squeeze in one more trip? Why not sign the babe up for another class? Why not check one more bucket list box?
Instead - at the sage encouragement of my husband - we are committing to do little more than live our ordinary lives fully in these waning weeks of summer. To stay close to home. Spend time as a family. Connect with friends. To rest and recharge for the busy Fall and all the big changes it will bring. And I encourage you to do the same. Slow down and allow yourself to experience the joy in the ordinary moments that come your way.
