It’s finally Friday & this tired Mommy couldn’t be happier for a long weekend to get some good ol’ r ‘n r.

We kicked off last weekend with a night of backyard camping {for the girls only} & the Tooth Fairy found us thanks to H leaving an oh-so-bright flashlight shining on the lost body part.

I love watching the fog roll out on early mornings as I get to enjoy coffee before everyone starts waking. Country living is a gift.

My poor little sick one has been a trooper. He takes whatever I give him & while the herbs have helped tremendously, I can’t get the mucus in his chest to break up & move out for anything. Off to the doc we go for some allopathic assistance.

Here’s to a weekend of recovery & seriously delicious, healing foods.

And some time for me to work on new projects.

I’m looking forward to some trail time over the weekend & enjoying our last few lazy days of summer before jumping into the hustle-bustle of a school routine.

Happy weekending & Instagramming moments,
Mae

Three Things Thursday

1. I’ve been carving out some studio time this week & trying to do a good bit of upcycling from the amazing bin of clothes I have. So far so good! The other day I deconstructed a really cute dress & it became a cafe apron (+ several other projects).

2. Today was a 2 hour day for the kids at school. I officially have a Kindergartener & 1st grader. People keep asking me how I’m handling my babies being in school – other than a little sniffle moment last night while tucking them into bed, I’m ecstatic! Routine, projects, field trips, reading new books, meeting new friends, & watching them blossom into ridiculously cool kids is great gift for making it through the baby & toddler years.

3. We went on a camping trip last weekend & had lots of time in the pool. Swimming laps, doing flips + handstands, tipping each other off of floats & just enjoying time together in the water was healing for all of our souls. Once our school routine is under way, this momma is gonna hit the water much more often. Maybe one day I’ll even do a little tri. 😉

Off to the studio to prep for market + a reopening of my Etsy shop.
Just keep swimming,
Mae
