Hi everyone! Happy 4th of July from my family to yours!
I had planned to show you my summer mantel today, but you know what? Mama needs a break!
I’m writing this on July 3rd. My girls (and I, since I’m the teacher) just finished their school year today! Yippee! Snowflake completed 6th grade and Pumpkin completed 1st grade. It has been a long emotional year and I’m so glad to be done. I could have stayed up late tonight to get you the pics, etc. to show you my summer mantel, but I decided that the girls and I needed to celebrate instead. I’m warming dinner in the oven as I write. I think it is time for a movie dinner and a big glass of wine for Mama!
In case you missed the announcement on my facebook page, I can’t take too much of a break because on Tuesday my girls and I are heading out on a cross-country adventure. We will be driving almost coast to coast to see family and will be gone for 5 weeks! I need to get packing and finish up a few more posts so they are ready for you all. I don’t have them written yet, but at least I will have the projects done and can write on the road.
I’d love to have you join us on our journey. My favorite ♥ social media outlet is Instagram. I’m certain I will be sharing plenty of pics of our summer adventure on Instagram. If you want to see what state we are in or what we are up to, please feel free to follow me there. I’m sure I’ll share some on facebook as well, so that is another good place to follow along.
Like I said already, the blog will continue all summer. I have lots of fun planned for you. I will be writing/doing the majority of the posts and I have a few bloggy friends who are also going to come say hi and share some great stuff with you as well. If you don’t want to miss any posts, your best bet is to subscribe to my free email. I send you an email each time I publish a new post, which is normally 3 times per week. Unfortunately between our summer travels and facebook showing the posts on my page to only about 100 of my 1300+ followers, it isn’t the most reliable place to follow along and get updates. If you want to subscribe, just follow this link and fill in your email address. You will have to click on an email that will be sent to your email address to verify that you want to receive the emails. Then you are all set…easy peasy!
Alright, well, there is my update.
I hope you and your family have a fantastic 4th of July! Enjoy the family, enjoy the fun, and enjoy the long weekend!
See you on Monday! and Thanks so much for being such fantastic supporters of my blog! I appreciate each and every one of you! ♥
