Our East Coast Road Trip officially ended last night and I'm back in my state, in my city, in my house, in my craftroom, and I'm happy about it.
It felt so good to sleep in my own bed, and to shower in my own shower (with water pressure!).
Last night, I filled my reading-mind with paper-project inspiration in the hopes of making August jam-packed with crafting fun:
The babies and I reunited...
...and they've been crazy attached to my feet since I've been home...like this commercial.
This guy (below) straight up would NOT leave me alone last night! Slept on my head, slept on my neck, nipped my ears, crawled under the covers...he could not be more ecstatic his mommy is back. Sheesh!
This morning I've been playing catch-up and the stamp orders I received while I were away are packaged and ready for drop off at the post office tomorrow.
They will be delievered to your door sometime this week! :) Get yours here.
The 16s below were bought in preparation for a very special 16th-birthday photoshoot I have planned for my sweet little cousin's big birthday in two weeks.
...and then with the completion of our East Coast Road Trip, comes the realization that it's CRUNCH TIME.
In about 4 weeks, my beloved summer will be over, the new school year will begin, and I will again be placed on that treadmill that's way too fast for my body.
I had this realization actually on the road trip when I bought my mom, sister, and I souvenir tervis coffee mugs...you know...for those long, miserable, cold-morning commutes once we return to work.
These next four weeks are going to zoom by -- I know it -- but I'm back.
I'm back, and I'm going to do everything in my power to make this month great.
This week, I'm going to be running a bunch of errands, working on putting the road trip into my *Project Life* album, starting some projects, visiting my new classroom, hosting a casual pool day...and we'll see what else.
Starting tomorrow on this blog-space: a recap of places I went and things I experienced during our trip. Hope to join me in in revisiting |the south and back| through my eyes!
See you then!
