who else has started planning their spring and summer break?
it’s that time of year for me
not just because summer camp schedules are out and fill up fast but also because by the end of january, i need to start looking forward to warmth and sunshine
there are a few destinations being tossed around for both breaks
we might actually go on spring break as a family of three instead of just Lily and i but there is also a possibility of it just being Lily and i in miami like we have done for the past four years
and summer is a bit trickier this year with Lily wanting to do a month long summer intensive program at her ballet school in order to make it to a pre professional level (she really wants to get into those pointe shoes)
we will see how it all goes
plans are in the works so that is the important part
happy friday friends!
still learning how to play the guitar on her own
i’ve been trying to make art every day
there are have been a lot of gloomy days. but at least they start off with some sunshine
we have a big house. but this is where i spend most of my time/days. i could probably just live in this room
meal planning for the week on a sunday morning
speaking of sunday… she slept until 10:45
she also grew almost four inches again this year. third year in a row
two years ago (now three years ago) i decided to spend my birthday in los angeles california with one of my oldest girlfriends Connie
this year (now last year) i decided to spend it in st pete florida with my other oldest girlfriend K
sometimes the mom guilt still tries to take over and keep me from doing and going places without my family but when it comes to birthday, spending it somewhere warm, tropical, in the sunshine, with palm trees and near the ocean is my preferred way to spend it
it’s not surprising
i was born in angola, luanda
a warm and tropical place by the sea
happy friday friends!
ps- i’ve been sick all week. sicker than i have been since i had the flu three years ago. so much so that i was convinced that i had the flu again. or pneumonia. so i went to the doctor yesterday. i have neither. i have a nasty virus that is going around that is taking forever to leave. stay healthy!
my kind of wall. and floors
the best breakfast i could have asked for on my last day as a 46 year old
