Summer Bucket List

Inspired by my fav pod, Joy the Baker at  this list is

What’s Happening this summer:

1. Desert R.A.T.S – 6 days, 148 miles…. it’s not a race, it’s a fun run!!

Check it out at

2. The Last Hurrah – my sweet baby girl, almost all grown up but will always be my baby, is almost 18 and and this will be our last official pre-grad summer together.
My mommy style has been and forever will be:
a. It is better to err on the side of love;
b. you will not get this time back with those babies, so take advantage of it and make the most of every precious moment;
c. There is always someone else who can take care of the world’s problems, but there is NO ONE ELSE who can love your children like you do;
d. Never wake a sleeping baby. Never. Unless there’s a fire, then it’s okay.

And my girl, she is SO GROWN UP, but this is the same girl who, no lie, until she got to middle school if I had gone to school with her every day, and sat in the little chair, with her on my lap, all day, that would have been totally A-OK with her.
What can I say, she loves her mommy.  And I love that.
SO….we’re taking a trip. Again – making the most of the time we have left .. for me to show her that she is so very precious to me… Not sure where, details to follow, but it is going to be epic. I can’t wait!

3. Icees with Captain Morgan, after……

4. Biking in Clermont

5. Me, Michael, a 6 pack of beer at the beach at sunset… the BEST!

Welcome summer!
