Countdown to Summer

I’m in the countdown for summer. My kids are finishing up their last few weeks of school, and I’m trying not to lose my mind before that first day of summer vacation. I’m not sure why this happens every year, but we always end up cramming too much into the very end. To be honest, I could do with a few less school activities and ALOT less burnout. But for whatever reason, every year ends with a full calendar, and I find myself “storing up” things to look forward to once summer hits.

Relaxing on a beach is always top of the list, of course (why live in LA if you don’t like the ocean?!), but summer also gives me time to weed out the house and hopefully have a little fun changing things up. I bought this book a few weeks ago, started reading it, and decided to give up until I have enough free time to actually enjoy it and think about how the projects included would apply to our living space. Kristin is a fun writer, and even though I didn’t make it far into her book yet, I could feel her joy in what she does. Her blog has the same upbeat vibe, and I’m counting down the days until I can revive my own creative spirit again.
