Gone Fishin'


In what I expect to be the theme of the summer, I am finding myself overwhelmed,  under-rested, and generally behind on everything, including this space. I have lots of back-logged pictures from our sudden heat wave to sort through, and some progress on the kids' room to share as well... but I've decided to throw caution to the wind and go on a mini-vacation. 

Little Smith and I are heading to my mom's this afternoon for a few days of country air.  We'll be returning home just in time to pack up the car and leave for our family camping trip (there's rain in the forecast guys, so cross your fingers for us that they're wrong!). I will probably sneak a post in there somewhere, but for the most part it will be a week with no internet connection... sometimes that can be a welcome treat!

Here's hoping this week brings a little more sleep, a brief escape from the anxieties of our endless to-do list, plenty of sun, and just a tad less heat. I'll be catching up here soon, and I need to snap a picture of myself for an update because seriously... I'm pregnant now... big time!

  4. Enjoy your time away! I had spotty internet all last week while in Prince Edward Island and it turned out to be for the best as neither my husband nor I had our noses in a phone or iPad or laptop the entire time.

    Fingers crossed for no rain and a little less heat!

  6. Enjoy it, Lilly! I always love your updates and posts, but as someone who has greatly benefitted from throwing blog obligation to the wind, I say run fast and free away from your internet tethers! We'll all still be here when you get back. :)

  11. Getting away from the internet world can be just what we need to realize it doesn't ALL have to be done, always, or perfectly. :) Take some YOU time. No need to stress out about this little portion of the world when you have a whole new world growing inside of you right now.
