Loving this time of year! Busy as it is with school coming to an end, activities finishing up, end of year concerts and plays, championship games and end of year parties. Now I am looking forward to the lazy days of summer! Maybe not so lazy but definitely less scheduled as during the school year. We have a vacation coming up soon and my am I so looking forward to that. A time to relax with family.  My family is so excited for this upcoming vacation. And I as well......

My garden is starting to really come to life out there. We have had much rain here the past few days which is apparently just what this garden of mine needed. Looking forward to the first harvest! And how I love just sitting outside on the deck and looking at my honeysuckle grow, it took some time but it seems to like its new spot :)
Hope you all are enjoying the beginning of the summer!

If you can dream it, you can make it so!

I don't know who quoted that but I need to place that on my computer so that I can look at that everyday and realize that Yes, I can do it! It is so hard sometimes to realize that YOU CAN accomplish your goals and dreams. Especially when being a mother. We are so consumed with our motherly role that sometimes our dreams fall to the wayside.

We fall into a life of self-sacrifice as we enter the stage of motherhood. Our children come first which is the way it should be. But we also need to reclaim that strong sense of our own self, our needs, and our dreams.

We must learn to find that balance between self-sacrifice and self-care. It is a hard balance to find, how do you find that balance?
