What I am trying to say is that I haven't blogged because I have found other interests that somehow took over my life. I haven't felt the need to blog and to share what is happening in my life. Perhaps through the past 2 years of reading blogs and writing my blog, I am reaching a new level of being content and I don't need blogging, like I once used to need it.
But I don't want to shelf my blog. So I have a choice of going forward or quitting. So for now, I m moving forward, but will be going backward, in order to do so.
Here is a post that I started months ago:
August is a time of year where we get a quick breather and then jump into our fall sports. This year each of my kids is playing one sport for one team, which is much more manageable than previous years!
Self portrait in August. Typical look for me: swimsuit, tank top, headband & sport watch. I do get rather tan from my Italian heritage, thanks Dad!:
A 9th birthday party for Marissa, 2nd from left in bright floral swimsuit. Give them water balloons on a super hot August day and they will be thrilled until they run out and I have to quickly fill 30 more!
This just exemplifies the energy and happiness of my 9 year old!
Love the August sunlight and water!
Girls just need a few good friends and cupcakes=pure happiness!
My nieces came to the lake for some water fun. This is my niece Lindsey and her fist pump!
My niece Allie, showing her water skills:
The lake is always fun when we have visitors and a birthday to celebrate!
Goofiness when it is raining at the lake. Thankfully, Lindsey and Aaron watched the monkeys while the adults slipped out to the wine bar for some adult time:
My brother-in-law and sister at the lake. I am mad that I forgot to get a pic of my sis and me...next year!
This pic was snapped by one of my besties, Kim. So happy she picked up my camera and took the photo. Might have to frame this in black & white. Me & hubby on our SUP's (Stand Up Paddleboard) New favorite past time! So glad my hubby bought these for Christmas last year. Fun, yet relaxing exercise at the lake.
Stay tuned for parts 2, 3, & 4. Now, I am back!
