1000 Gifts: Every Day Beauty in the New Every Day
It’s summer and we’re finding a new everyday. I haven’t found it yet. While I have many fabulous ideas, I struggle to follow through with them. I’m quite happy to drift rough summer slowly and whimsically, but I have three children who don’t prefer life so slow and random. I’m seeking a compromise — less structure but enough plans to keep them focused (and hopefully reduce whining to a minimum).
280. Outdoor play!
281. Fresh strawberries on homemade waffles

286. Kids who have mastered swimming.
287. Visits to the pool more relaxing for mommy.
288. New books
289. Time to read
290. Time to write (albeit in tiny snippets of time)
