It feels like my own personal school year is winding down. Most know my summer tour is approaching in a month or two (as in, I escape for the entire summer) but there will be some delays and I might be here more than I am most summers, there’s a lot to do around the house – but I’ll need some weather breaks soon, it’s already 95 in Phoenix!
This past weekend, we celebrated Melayne’s upcoming wedding to Drew in my backyard, see their engagement session I did here. I’m share some bridal shower pics from the photographer who captured the bridal shower with more details on the shower planning process once I get those images. The bride has a gluten allergy so I want to talk about what we served and also hosting a generous crowd of 30 on a decent budget.
I want to read more this summer, self-help books (I’m a sucker for business, how-too, DIYs and organization). I really want my mind to be more still and less jumbled. I told Benjamin if he can tell when I’m frazzled like usually overstimulated or I have so much going on (like when I was hosting that day) and he says my voice changes higher pitched and I talk three times faster! I mean can I get some credit I do all of this unmedicated, haha!
I have this sign that says, “It’s OK to be happy with a calm life,” and I want to remind myself that. I like sitting on the couch watching a movie or with my laptop designing things. I like listening to my thoughts, allowing my thoughts to drift, even if they are worrisome and pray through it. For me, being calm is being more in tune with life and being able to enjoy those around me. xx
