Can you believe we are already at the halfway point of August??? September, back to school, Thanksgiving, and Halloween are just right around the corner. Not only that, but my sweet little Moonpie celebrates his first birthday in just over a month. (Okay, just breathe Cyn, just breathe). Time is flying by in a flash!
So, how are you spending what’s left of the season? I feel like in some ways there is so much left that I want to do on my summer bucket list. We’ve had a lot of overcast or rainy days and so in some ways it’s like summer has just begun. Instead of mourning it, I’m going to embrace it and find some really fun ways to finish it off with a bang!
