Happy Monday morning!!! It’s Chanda here, breathing deep as it’s the first official day of summer vacation. I can hardly believe I survived all the class parties, graduations, and end-of-year bonfires at the beach (I know, poor baby…kinda have to pinch myself that this is my life). But seriously, this was an emotionally super-charged couple of days. My youngest graduated from Kindergarten (gulp) and my oldest graduated from sixth grade (gulp…gulp). There was laughter and there were tears….and after all the Schizo emotions subsided (a bit), I got to Zest Up a photo-shoot and then head to Avila where I had the blessed chance to slow down and yuck-it-up with good friends. While we mellowed around a blazing hot beach fire, all our kids soaked up their first tastes of summer….feeding sea urchins, catching baby crabs, getting tossed by the waves and climbing rocks. I am so thankful for my friends and family….oh no, I feel more tears coming on!
The other great thing about the first of summer, is not having to rush off to do the whole school drop-off thing. Instead, I nursed a cup of coffee in my yard while my kids and I leisurely chatted away. Check out my new coffee-klatch area in my yard!
Enjoy your Monday!
