The last two weeks

I hadn't really intended to take the last two and a half weeks off from blogging, but here we are. I wasn't feeling overwhelmed by it (even after the 5 posts in 5 days challenge, which actually turned out to be easier and more fun that I had anticipated), but I also wasn't constantly itching to write another post. Usually I get sort of panicky if I haven't written anything in a while, but these last few weeks had me decidedly relaxed about the whole thing. As I am almost never relaxed about much, I went with it and took a break. I like to think that it's because I'm becoming more Zen as I age, but there's a much more realistic chance that since fall is almost here (as is apparent by all the autumn themed memes people keep posting on Facebook. Seriously, STOP IT. Do you know what comes after fall in northern Michigan? That's right, a frozen hell. Stop rushing it!) and our laid back summer schedule is about to become very un-laid back, my brain just shut down and went into the fetal position to prolong the imminent stress that will undoubtedly come soon enough. Either way, thanks brain!

I've spent the last 2 weeks of not writing:

Getting lured out of a weird funk with a steak dinner made by a man who chooses to love instead of letting me pick fights.
I was involved in 0.0% of the making of this meal. Thank you, Jesus, for good looking husbands who cook. 

Spending the day on an island with a group of hilarious, sweet, wonderful women that ended with a sunset cruise.
Look at this unfiltered (!!) picture--DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHY I DON'T WANT FALL NOW?

Celebrating my best friend's birthday

BOOM. 29

Making my best friend work for his birthday present (A cherry tree--the gift that keeps on giving...eventually)

I took pictures which is just as hard as actually planting the tree, thankyouverymuch.

I'm going to hold tight to these memories and cling to the last shred of peace I have left because next week we start school. Home school. As in me "teaching" and Ella "learning." And it's totally fine and I'm not stressed out about it at all, hahahahaha
