You know how, when you go to an amusement park, they have the big maps with the “You are HERE” signs.



Okay, so we’re not there exactly, since that’s just a shot of Lake Livingston from the bridge as we crossed it. But we are enjoying a mini family vacation complete with junk food (POP TARTS!), fishing poles, and a trampoline.

Call it one last hurrah before school starts and summer comes to a very regrettable close.

How are you spending your last days of summer? Or have you already started school? (Someone wondered why we were skipping school when I posted this on our Facebook page, and I had to actually think hard about the date to make myself believe that it was actually late enough for anyone to already BE in school!)

And now, I’m off to eat a mint Oreo (or three…they’re SO good), and you’re here to party!

P.S. Thank you so so much for your sweet, heartfelt responses to yesterday’s post. Sometimes, I wish I were the only one who ever felt that way, but then again, it’s always nice to know you’re not alone.

Don’t forget to grab a party button so others can join in the fun (or just include a text link-back).

Oh, and don’t forget to follow along with all these other fun happenings:

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram


I love hearing from you guys!
