i was just telling julie today that i never know that i need a vacation until i am forced to take one. because my wonderful parents take care of the mini, most of the time my vacation is dictated by when they decide to set off to some jet-set location. this time, they headed off to england, france and italy, but, even better than that, i get to stay home with my girl for a blissful almost-two-weeks. while the first day was a little rocky as we adjusted to being home together again, we have already settled into a lovely, summertime routine of walk, park, garden, wading pool, nap and play. we have snuck some cleaning and reorganizing in, (maybe it's my nesting instinct, maybe it's the fact that this kid has more toys than anyone else i know and it's slowly taking over the house) but for the most part, it's been easy and relaxing. plus we are both rockin' some sunkissed cheeks.
