…And just like that we’re swinging into Fall! Well, kinda. Its still pretty damn hot here, but I’ll take a few degrees of cooler weather! Next thing we know it’ll be the holidays! What??! How is that even possible?!!!? September is always a good month for me, (my birthday month😃) but it also brings conflicting feelings. It seems like every year after my birthday the rest of the year zips on by, which sucks. Like so many of you parents, I’m trying my best to navigate how time is flying by and accepting how fast my little one is growing. I guess the key is acceptance and being present- two things I try and work on DAILY! Am I good at it, not always! Am I trying? Yes! 😃
I always loved listening to my sweet grandma sharing stories of her “younger years” in Brooklyn. Even as a little girl, I was aware of her saying that it always felt “just like yesterday” when she was newly married, pregnant with my dad and moving to Arizona shortly after giving birth. At 94 years old my sweet Gram had the knowledge that I strive for on a daily basis. Of course she did! She was 94! Our elders know so much more than we do at times- at least more than I do! Why is being present such a challenge for me at times? Sigh. I’m learning… Having a child is definitely helping me enjoy all the moments- the fun, the messy and the amazing… I’m just so grateful that I was able to watch my grandma reminisce about meeting my grandpa, her highschool girlfriends and what her life was like before children. Her wisest words? She just kept telling me to ENJOY MY LIFE, because it flies by. UGHHHH. It’s so simple, so why do I make it so hard at times?
We can’t fight days flying by, so we my as well try to enjoy every damn second!
Ya with me?! xoxo
Side note- Lennox’s outfit is from the GAP. I keep getting emails about their crazy summer sale so I’ve linked his outfit and another cute t-shirt I found below …And I am obsessed with this jumpsuit. It’s the perfect transition for fall outfit and actually my next post. It’s also linked below with the cute striped version that I have my eye on. 😉 Plus a similar version of my husbands shirt. Happy sales shopping!!
