Happy Friday!

waitin' in line

Today, I sent the kids to camp Grandma + Grandpa. They’ll be gone for a week. I should probably be excited to have this time, but I can’t help feeling melancholy. This is the longest we’ve ever been away from each other. I know it will be good for the kids and my parents. They’ll spend the week bonding and doing all sorts of fun things, but, the house won’t be the same without those two.

So what are you up to this weekend? Anything fun? Dave and I are going to grab a bite to eat and maybe see a movie. He has a shoot this weekend, so I’ll be puttering around solo for a bit. Maybe I’ll squeeze in some reading.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Here are some things that recently caught my eye…

    So encouraging! Like, “you know what? I may just be getting started at 40, 50, or 60 years old.”

    And thanks Julia, I’m going to try and enjoy it.

    Quite the round up! I particularly like the article about the nine women, just like Julia (comment above). I am definitely working towards my own new goals and am hitting another decade very soon. I am ready to channel these ladies and BRING IT! Thanks for sharing the encouraging post!!! Hope your weekend and kid free week are full of unexpected joys! Happy Friday!
