June has just flown right by! I'm not okay with it. Not at all. Summer is like.. my time. I think I thrive in summer- endless snow cones and popsicles, the smell of sunscreen and the occasional sunburn paired with aloe vera, more relaxed schedules, and fresh strawberries sold the size of your head. Pool days, splash pads, and backyard sprinklers. It's the 4 months of the year that reminds me of being back home (where summer lasts...like 10 months a year ;-)
This June however things seemed to have been too busy! I can't put my finger on what exactly, but we haven't had enough of those lazy days. (I'm coming for ya July...we have big anti-plans).
Mine and James' birthday are only six days apart! Sandwiched in between Mother's and Father's day- it's a big long month of US. Hah! James turned 31 this year and I turned 28. I have to admit...I actually thought I already was 28. So my birthday was just a formal confirmation of what I already knew to be true. When I was a late teenager and in my early 20s I used to think 28 was so OLD. So established and mature. Like, 28 year-olds had their junk together.
I feel none of the above, however. I don't FEEL old. I feel like the best is yet to come and I'm just getting to my prime. I suppose that's a good thing. Now I look at people in their 30s the same way--so established...they definitely have their minivan-carpooling-soccer momming-junk together.
Enough on my philosophies of life! For James' birthday we went with the girls to Tucanos, a Brazilian steakhouse, and then had cheesecake with his cousin and family a few days later. For my birthday we went to dinner and a movie while the girls had a sleepover at Grandma's so we could sleep in Saturday morning! It was glorious.
The next week I went with some friends to The Cheesecake Factory! A night full of calories and good conversation for sure.
Cheers to another year! We're off to Florida in just a few days and I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
