Giraffes By The Sea

Boy...August has been rough so far. I can't seem to focus on anything, lately! I had a major assignment due over the weekend, and it felt good to get that done and out of the way. It always seems like I have a million things to do or plan or focus on at once. It's great but also exhausting at times. It's good to always be moving and doing, though. I've never been one to just sit around doing nothing. I'm always wanting to go and do.

The heat and humidity wave finally broke and the weather has been absolutely gorgeous lately. Warm days with cool mornings and nights. It's like I can almost feel fall coming! This weekend I sat by the beach, went shopping (and found some nice sales!), and I listened to a bunch of Disney music. It's probably been about two weeks now that I've been listening to pretty much nothing else other than that. I will never get enough!

Yesterday I had lunch with my grandma, my mom, my aunt, and my niece for my grandma's birthday. It's so neat when everyone gets together and you realize that there are four generations sitting at the same table. I'm very lucky to be able to still have three of my four grandparents around and healthy. I love hearing their stories and what life was like before I was even a thought. Or as my dad would say, when I was just a "sparkle in my mom's eye".

I really wish that I could time travel and hang out with my grandparents and my parents when they were my age. Sometimes I feel like we only know a version of our parents, like there's this whole other part of them that they lived through. They could've been completely different people and it'd be so interesting to see.

  1. Like a little fly watching them. Sometimes I think that too but other times I think... let me have the memories I have from my parents like this. I don't know :)

  5. Adorable look! I love the colours of your outfit, the yellow and brown look great together. Your top is amazing too, I love the print! (And I thought I was the only one who enjoyed Disney music, besides children of course, haha!)
