Thank you, sunshine, for last Friday. The sunshine just has a way of motivating you, no? We got out in the yard and got some WERK in. 🙂

Thank you, family, for rainy MARVELous movie days. I’m glad I can be a part of your superhero inner circle. #TeamCap!

Thank You Notes| Thank you MARVELous family.

Thank you, salt water, for being just what we needed. A misty day at the beach was good for our souls.

Sometimes you need the ocean to wash away your cares.

My Morning| ☕️☔️ Me: Here wear your khakis. Son: Khakis are for special occasions. Me: Waking up this morning was a special occasion. ?I totally felt like I deserved a golden mic in my hand to then drop. I didn’t get that, I got a puzzled look and big fat question mark. Why? I could have gone on and on with my hippie dippy baloney, but I spared him, because we were rushing *of course*. ?Buuuut I got to thinking about what I said while packing lunches and dropping off kids… Why? Life is a special occasion that I think most of us are taking for granted. We expect tomorrow, because tomorrow always comes after today, right? But what if it doesn’t, and what if you kept waiting for a “special occasion” and it never came. We can’t keep waiting, we need to start doing! ?Dipping your feet in the Pacific Ocean for the first time: special occasion and the second time AND the third time… because life IS our special occasion, our chance! We aren’t given power-ups and extra lives… There isn’t Up-Up-Down-Down-Left-Right-Left-Right B, A, Start to help us out. We have to be our own cheat code! Let’s not wait, let’s do!? Happy Tuesday!?? P.S. If I had fine china I’d use it today, but I don’t. Soooo….

Thank You Notes Down by the sea

And sometimes you need your punching bag to sweat it all out. {I’m hoping I’m not going to be swore tomorrow, also I cannot wait to hit the bag again!}

You Care Too Much

Confessions from carer| You Care Too Much| I've heard "You care too much" more times than I'd like to admit. I always thought what's wrong with caring, but I'm quickly learning sometimes over caring can be harmful to the caring carer. Here's what I plan to do to fix that.

    1. Me too, I needed it. 😉
      Wishing you a beautiful summer vacation with plenty of beach days. 🙂

  1. I’d have to thank the weather for finally getting nice here…it felt like summer! Yay for sun for both of us. And now I’m outside at 7:30 am on my porch enjoying the warm weather, a cup of coffee, and some blog reading 🙂

    1. That sounds heavenly! It’s gray and raining, not porch sippin’ weather here. Can I come over? Did you get your new computer? I need a laptop, I’d love to take my computer outside to enjoy the weather. Well, when it’s nice. 🙂

    1. HAHA! I think you and I were on each other’s blogs at the same time. 🙂
      I owe you an email, I’m excited to work with you!!

  2. Beautiful flowers and beach photos!!! I’ve never hit a boxing bag, but I think it would be fun. The boxing games on the Wii are good workouts, so I know the real thing most be really great 🙂

    1. Thanks, Sonya.
      I think you would love boxing!!! I swear it’s a stress reliever! It’s one of my favorite workouts. 🙂

  3. Salt water is so healing. I am dreaming about our Cape Cod house almost daily right now. And I’m dreaming about the PNW too. I always do, though.
    I’m on #TeamCap, but I watched the movie in pieces, rather than entirety, (long story) and I lost a connection to it. Which is weird because it’s SO heady and I think had I been in the right headspace, it might be my favorite MARVEL movie so far.
    I’ll try again.
    And one of my favorite bloggers had to remind me why I’m on #TeamCap. I am.. truly.. I just lost something from the experience. I’ll get it back.

    1. I want to go to Cape Cod!!! 🙂
      I hope you get to watch the movie again. I wonder if you’re like me at the movies, your head is always on a swivel and you may be seated closely to the exit or the stairs… maybe?
      #TeamCap always! 🙂

  4. I wish we lived by the beach, it is a bummer to be in a landlocked state! I just love the photos of your family and the one of you and your husband! You are so blessed! And, hitting a punching bag sounds like something I need to do every so often!! lol!


    1. My husband’s grandmother told us that my husband and I would always need to live near water, that was many years ago before we even had a love for the ocean. Looking back on her words, she was right, we need the water. It doesn’t have to be the ocean, but we’d prefer it. 🙂 We are so thankful for our adventures.

      Hitting the punching bag is something I think everyone should do, it’s the best stress reliever! 🙂 Thanks for your kind words and visit, Carrie!

  5. such a beautiful family you have! can’t get over it! ^_^ I love keeping up with your adventures. And I wish I could grow something, ugh. guess I just need more practice lol
