Summer Musings

Summer is almost to an end…can y’all believe it?  I don’t have much time these days to put together any organized posts, so here are some random musings on summer.

  • It’s been HOT.  I know I know…it’s the south, what do I expect?  But really…you know it’s been hot when you get excited about 93 degree temps…
  • We’ve been so busy! 
    • Trip and gatherings and friends and family <3
  • I’ve been overwhelmed with how much housework there is to keep up with…so we’re giving the whole “minimalist” lifestyle a shot – the less you have, the less you have to clean, right?  Good thing shoes don’t require any cleaning…I can just keep on collecting those.
  • I’ve only made my strawberry cake ONE time this summer.  Compared to the 4 times I made it last summer.  There’s still a few weeks…right?
  • I’m going all Whole 30 again after my birthday (or maybe just paleo-ish) — so I’m Fat Tuesdaying it up right now.  I currently have two cakes in my fridge.  This one is almost gone…
  • Strawberry Dream Cake

Caaaake. yum.

Currently (Yes, a real post!)

I know I know…it’s been forever since I’ve actually written a real post.  But I’d be lying if I said I regretted it.   Lately, I’ve been making a concentrated effort to sloooow down.  Simplify.  Abide and Enjoy. So here’s what I’ve been up to…

Currently -

LOVING:  Birth.  I get to photograph a birth any day now and I’m *SO* excited.  Have I mentioned I love birth?  I’m sure that’s come up here and there on this blog…

WORKING ON:  My doula certification.  And my birth photography business.  Did I mention I was starting a birth photography business? 

READING:  Lots of lots of doula books.  Did I mention I’m training to be a doula?

EATING: Ok, my birth references stop here…no placentas in my diet!  We went berry picking last weekend and we’ve each been eating about a pint of blueberries and blackberries a day, no joke.  And we’re planning on another trip in the next week or two!

MISSING:  The beach…wahhhh.  My sweet inlaws took our family on a beach vacation a few weeks ago and it was *magical*.

ENJOYING:  Intentional time pursuing God.  He is faithful and gracious.

I know it’s a brief little update…but I’ve got some more posts brewing in my head so stay tuned for them…eventually 😉 (and unapologetically!)

Ladies Collective and a Sweet Picture

It’s been a wonderful year+, but unfortunately, the Ladies Collective Linkup will be on a temporary hiatus for an undetermined amount of time. We’re all just so dang busy! Thank you all for your beautiful, inspiring, and entertaining posts. I hope you have enjoyed reading one another’s blogs and that good community has come from it.

I’ll still be around here blogging occasionally…when I find the time between the billion projects I keep taking on (joyfully!)

Happy blogging 🙂
