Sunday Lately :: Week 84

Aug 7, 2016

Angelica, Meaghan, Nicole, and myself. We e-hang out every Sunday, sharing a small glimpse into the last week of life in our own worlds. We’d love if you could join us!
This week’s themes: Updating, Remembering, Needing, Wearing, Being.

Updating. My list of to-dos.  We’ve got a wild month ahead of us.  As in, this week is just the beginning of it all.  Louis turns six, we are hosting a birthday party, and he goes back to school…all within the same week/weekend.  Dead.  I’ll be dead.  It’s fun stuff, but still exhausting.  #sendcoffee #andbooze #maybebothatthesametime

Remembering. How nice it is to wake up, grab a cup of coffee, and sit on the porch….while staring at the beach.  It’s AMAZING.  And beautiful.  We are spending the week in gorgeous Cape May, NJ with the entire McKinley crew.  Not a shabby way to spend seven days.

Needing. To remember to disconnect this week.  I’ll do my best.  But I also, obviously, brought my computer with me to get some work done.  And I have my yarn and crochet hooks so I can keep working on some fingerless gloves to stock the shop this fall.  Although…crocheting is super relaxing.  Especially on a beach-front porch.  So to my credit, that one is legit.

Wearing. These fully me-made, coordinated outfits for our family photos while we are here.  Instead of being a smart person and making everything ahead of time…I spent the day before we drove to New Jersey sewing outfits for our family of three.  I’m not mad, really.  Because they turned out super cute.  I just think maybe I should have done it more than one day before departure.  Maybe.

Being. Lucky.  Not everyone gets to have get-aways with an entire family.  This is our third trip out here as this big, official group.  Sure, putting fifteen people with big personalities into one house together for several days might cause a few stressors.  But even that’s worth it because we have this chance for all of us to be together.  Six grandkids, four kids, three spouses, and the two parents.  It’s fabulous.
