days 149-181 {the whirlwind we’ll call June}

July already?! We are completely and undeniably in the middle of summer. The crazy thing is that the last month was so hectic that it is almost like it never happened, or that I blinked and we hopped straight from mid May to the beginning of July. A few big things happened in June. The kids graduated preschool, one of my best friends had a brand new baby … and we officially 100% decided that we were going to move – and with that we embarked on a crazy break-neck pace plan to re-floor the new house before the move. Between all the moving plans and packing plans and cabinet painting we’ve been doing (more on that soon!) and the interviewing and hiring of contractors, we’re flat out exhausted. But the 365 must go on! I am absolutely determined not to fall behind this year and I haven’t skipped a day of photo-taking yet. June was a fairly iphone-heavy month but hopefully I’ll turn that around in the next few weeks.

So here’s to June… the month so crazy I can’t even remember it. And here’s hoping that July is just a little more subdued.

days 142-148 {the week in which I broke my nose}

This week’s photo post is a few days late, but with good reason. On Tuesday evening while we were getting the kids ready for bed, Paul managed to break my nose. I’ve not broken a single bone in my body my entire life up until this point, so it came as a bit of a surprise. Needless to say bedtime was interrupted. It was one of the moments when I’m most glad that family lives nearby, my mom came to watch the kids while Ben brought me to urgent care. I’ve been a bit tired and sore and out of it ever since, but the swelling and bruising have gone down considerably.

In other news, summer appears to be officially sneaking up on us – the weather is warmed up enough to start turning the bedroom ceiling fans on and the kids have only a few short weeks left of preschool before they “graduate” and are off for the summer. It still hasn’t fully sunk in that in just a few short months they will be in Kindergarten. How fast time flies.

days 128-134 {Disney World}

The past week has been the definition of whirlwind, but in the very best possible way. We flew with the whole family, including my parents, to Disney World for five nights… and then back again. When we were planning out the trip I wondered if it might not be enough days to justify the plane ride. After all, five hours on a plane with three kids under five? Yikes! Especially now that they don’t really serve (or even sell) real food onboard. The funny thing is that even while having the time of their lives (and they did!) the kids were still totally ready to go home by the end of our last full day in Florida. It turned out to be perfectly timed. And I have to say, now that we are back… there really is no place like home.

days 121-127 {Houston bound}

Have you ever seen the work of James Turrell or been inside one of his skyspaces? If you haven’t, I’d urge you to drop whatever you are doing and get yourself over to one – stat! It’s no secret that I love the sky so on a quick visit to Houston for a friend’s baby shower, my one must-see item was the new skyspace at Rice University (which also happens to be my alma mater). I have actually been to several other skyspaces before and knew it was going to be amazing, but we went for the sunset light sequence and it completely and totally blew my expectations out of the water. If I lived in Houston I’d be parked there every evening. Amazing, I tell you.

days 114-120 {march for babies!}

This past Saturday was the San Diego March of Dimes walk – the March for Babies. It was a beautiful blue sky day and we couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather to celebrate my nephew Peyton on our walk. I am so proud of my sister for everything she’s done for the March of Dimes and they way that she’s chosen to celebrate her son’s memory. The rest of the week went by in a hurry… I cannot believe it’s already MAY! Already 1/3 of the way through this 365… it’s amazing!

days 108-113 {a little bit of San Francisco}

This past weekend was my niece Natalie’s birthday and to help celebrate I flew up to San Francisco for her party. Everyone kept saying that we brought the warm weather with us from down south, it was so warm (almost downright hot) and there wasn’t a single cloud in the sky… perfect weather for an outdoor party! Happy Birthday miss Natalie! I love you!
