LONG LIVE SUMMER
Me and the babe are confused about the 86 degree Autumn Nashville weather and since it’s fall break this week, we thought we’d just dive right back into summer. Ya know, staycation, grill some veggie burgers, some corn on the cob and maybe catch some rays while we’re at it.
No but seriously as much as I’m ready for back porch fire and wine drinking, marshmallow smores’ making, and pumpkin banana bread baking, I’m not passing up the opportunity to dip my toes in the water with my twin and forget about the bill paying, the house cleaning, the song making or book writing. Yep. I’ve (we’ve decided) life is too darn short to not jump right in to the cold-ish water and forget about everything.
In light of what happened last week, every minute of the hour on the hour, I’m in constant motion of watching my babies live their best lives whether that may be learning to say poo-poo (yes you heard me right, words are hard) or practicing math problems (wine please) and or maybe learning to say "brother, I’m sorry" (heart melting). And it’s reminded me of this: all the while I’ve ever thought (at certain moments) my true feelings weren’t valid, my children are constantly reminding me of the contrary. And that while I may be sitting back watching the world go by in this particular moment by the pool with my only daughter, that is in fact my whole world and I’ll never back down from knowing that that feeling is indeed my greatest and truest feeling and that’s my world and I’m living in it, to the fullest. Long live summer. Peace and love friends.
Shop our twinning suits linked above and check out their summer sale with a few other showstoppers from our new favorite designer Marysia! And yes, I'm a believer of this brand, quality made and super flattering (which y'all know they have to be because I had 3 babies, also hail thee the one piece is my new staple). One more thing, they run a little small and the summer sale is final sale, no returns! xx Maile
