Goodbye, Summer.

Monday, September 4, 2017

It's Labor Day, summer is officially over, and though I'm excited for all things Fall (I'm 100% basic) I have to admit that I'm a bit sad that this summer has come and gone. It's honestly been the best one (with kids) so far because 100% of my time has been dedicated to our family--and that has been the most fulfilling and rewarding thing I've ever experienced.

We've traveled near and far. We've had thousands of pool days. Lucca learned how to swim under water. Leo learned to walk. And run. And talk.

I've snuggled close with my babes. We've made impromptu road trips to visit family in the middle of the week. We've had the best playdates with friends and neighbors. We've had lazy days with nothing to do and nowhere to go. We've walked for miles on cool mornings. We've spent rainy days at the library wandering the aisles, building with blocks and checking out books. We've gone to get ice cream in the middle of the day.

This. All of this. I needed this so much in my life. I knew I was missing it. I knew I was unhappy before in my previous working situation but I didn't realize how unhappy I was until now. This is what life is supposed to be like. Not missing moments- no matter how big or small. Not wishing for better days with your kids and family...

I already feel like time is passing so quickly- when Fall is looming that means birthdays are around the corner, holidays, then another new year. At least now I can hold on to these moments just a bit longer- even though they are still fleeting. I can hold on to them for just a second longer and be thankful for every single bit of it.

Goodbye summer. You were great to us.
