Thinking Out Loud: Summer Lessons

Ummm…hello…er…is this thing on?

*taps mic*

How about it, broccoli bites?! Have you missed me? Because I’ve missed YOU! I really have. I hope you are all doing well and I hope you had the best summer ever!
I know I sure did!

Summer Family Portrait

How could I have not with these three knuckleheads?

But the thing is…I learned a lot this summer. A lot about these two beautiful girls, a lot about the strength of my relationship, and a lot about myself.

Chess Squares

I learned how to make chess squares out of cake mix


I learned how to make more than four different flavors of buttercream frosting

And I learned that I have two very promising little bakers who not only make some mean desserts but know how to clean up as well!

Me & Lexie Selfie

I learned who to take the most outrageous selfies with…

Me & Brookie Selfie

I learned who just prefers to be a photo bomber…

And I learned that “chrome” is the most awesome photo filter!

iPhone Oops

I’ve learned that a phone can die a horrible death at my hand…

Plant Life

I’ve learned that something green can grow from my black thumb…

And I’ve learned how sparkly things look on a certain finger!

Cereal Killer

I’ve learned that peanut butter mixes well in milk…


I learned that cotton candy gelato is the best thing ever…

And I’ve learned that my once lactose-challenged tummy may not be so lactose-challenged anymore!

Family Summer Selfie

But the most important thing I learned all summer is that there could be no one else…on this Earth…as happy as I am right now.

And I’m gonna guess that it only took about 170 words before you were all gagging from the sappiness, right? I’ll be back on Monday with something fun…and trust me, you’ll be able to keep your lunch down! 😉


So glad to be back for another ToL! It’s been FAR too long! Be sure to head on over to Spoons and check out all the random fun everyone is linking up today!

What’s your favorite memory you made this summer?
