Home & Family

Hi Friends! 
   I titled this post "Home & Family" because those two words are basically our life in a nutshell recently! (So essentially this is a Life Lately post just gussied up with a different name).

 Before I share some recent pictures, I just have to share, guys. I am having anxiety about this school year and the state of the world. Even when outcomes can be difficult to hear, sometimes that not knowing space can be the hardest. I wish there was a simple response, a clear answer. But we (teachers, parents, the community) need to have faith and trust that we want the very best for our children.

One of my favorite parts of my job is that now, 12 years in, I know how to begin the school year. I know what to label, what to copy, what to prep, what to teach first and for the better part of a decade, I've gone into the building in August and simply done it. This year, though, I'm like shrug emoji/big eye emoji and I suppose I need to be "flexible," "adaptable," and "have a growth mindset." All things I teach my students but that I, the teacher, struggle with. My how the tables have turned. I know this, though: When this all passes (and it will, right? Right? RIGHT?), I will never again take for granted a "normal" start to the school year. I don't know about you but I take so much for granted. The truth is, I'm not about to make this global pandemic about me and my classroom. I guess all that to say---Keep trying, boo, we're all new to this current reality. And here's a pretty picture from my walk today because #zen. 

Let's start with FAMILY---Last week AJ's parents came to visit. They hadn't seen Hank since February and they couldn't believe how much bigger (and chattier) he got! We had fun walking the gardens at Thanksgiving Point, visiting the Farmers Market, going for walks, relaxing, BBQ'ing on the 4th etc. AJ and I relished that for the first time in a LONG time, we were able to have a little date night. Earlier this month, we celebrated my dad's birthday in the driveway. These are weird times but it's nice to see one another. 

Hank was thrilled to roll down this hill (it turned into crawling, no matter, he loved it!) 

Hank's face in this SLAYS me! 

Everytime I take a photo with a sunbeam I know it's Hadley saying, "I'm here too!" 

Now, HOME----AJ's dad is super handy (he's made us so many wood pieces, including our dining table!) so he helped out a ton when he was here last week. He and AJ installed cabinets in our laundry room, painted an accent wall in our bedroom, put up a shelf in the garage, and other things! The work is beginning on our fence too! Woohoo! 
I love decorating this little side table in our entry way. 

HobLob has fall out (and some Christmas TBH) and I nearly cried when I saw it 

I have a different "o" for my home sign each month and my MIL brought me lots more options to add to my collection. So fun! 

This color is "Rain" by Sherwin Williams and I just love how it turned out! Our old house had a blue wall behind the bed and I just loved it, so I wanted to recreate it here. I think blue is so soothing in a bedroom. 

In other news, Hank trying out his new bike, my hubby being obsessed with his new smoker (send me your fave Traeger recipes!)  and HAMILTON have brought me immeasurable joy lately. Much like Alexander himself, my little Hank is "Non-stop" and I wouldn't have it any other way. 

If you have not seen this masterpiece, reconsider your life choices, get Disney Plus, watch it, then message me. Deal? 

Savor Your Sparkle,
