Summer brings mixed emotions for some people. Summer living CAN be easy but sometimes the Pinterest pressure to create never-ending bucket lists and expensive experiences feels overwhelming. We see pictures of our friends on social media taking trips and living lives that we can’t live.
I want to encourage you today that an intentional life can be simple and full in a beautiful way. Don’t miss a moment because the moments fly. Lord wiling, we get 18 summers with our kids. This is the time of year the hashtag #dontblink begins to pop up on every post.
As we conclude school years, we are reminded how fast time moves. With that reminder comes a mix of excitement and overwhelm at what that means for summer.
Today I share 7 of my favorite summer posts I’ve written over the years. It was fun to see how much I’ve changed over the course of the years in my writing, but the heart of what I love to write about remains the exact same. As I read through these posts, I was so grateful for living with deep intention in these years. Many of these posts were written in the toddler, preschool, and early elementary years. We are now entering high school, middle of middle school, and end of elementary. I blinked for sure, but I feel grateful for seeing it all.
