The last couple of months have been a whirlwind of activity and personal life drama (that part not so fun). The craziness threatened to take over super-alien invasion-like and then June rolled around and I inhaled the freshness of summer.
To summarize the madness, here are a few highlights and see pictures at the end of the post:
- Health issues
- Loss of a friend battling depression
- Another bought of depression of my own
- Urban Goddess Mama-to-Be releases!! Yay! Click here for more info.
- Starting of a new book. Another yay with a splash of "oh crap, are they going to like this one?"
- Friend's wedding
- Birthdays (Hubby's 40th and mine and no I'm not going to tell you how old I am)
- Day job stress learning a new database system
- New laptop (birthday gift from Hubby! BEST. MAN. EVER.)
- Birth Without Fear Portland Meet-up
- AND Portland Moms Blog
Summer is a time to celebrate family , nature, and the gift of life. This summer I'm going to focus on that. We're taking a family vacation to the beach to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, Boo Creature and I will also be taking a couple of trips to visit out-of-state family, and there will be lots of concerts, music festivals, camping, and outdoor activities throughout.
I'm absolutely excited about taking a summer off to enjoy family time. I won't totally be off because I still have my day job, but I'm also taking a little time off from that too.
So enjoy your summer, my divine friends! I'll be back early September and with some really exciting news to share with you (it's still in the works and I can't talk about it yet.)
I leave you with a few pictures, as promised.

Finally this is how I spent my Birthday. Massage, pedicure, and new haircut. If you can't practice self-care on your birthday, then when can you?
