Its pretty common for us to wish away time. In the middle of winter, we can’t wait for summer, but then summer rolls around, and its so hot that we just can’t wait for fall. We can’t wait until our next vacation, we can’t wait until we can finally afford our dream house. After 10 long months, we cant wait for summer break and then just a few weeks later, Facebook is littered with moms asking, “is summer break over yet?” I’m not sure why we do that, its probably a grass is greener things, but no matter the reason, I’ve decided I’m over it.
Instead of letting my mind wander to the next thing, I decided to really soak in summer for what it is; hot, sweaty, busy, and let not forget, fun. Lets be honest, life is a whole lot easier when my daughter is away for 7 hours a day. The house stays cleaner, there are less dishes used through out the day, and I can actually sit down at my desk and write uninterrupted, but none of that is worth more to me than the extra 7 hours a day I have with her during the summer. So, I let me house stay a complete disaster for days or even weeks at a time, I left suitcases up packed until the next trip and then I just dumped it onto the floor and filled it with something new for the next trip, I let the laundry pile up and the dishes sit in the sink because there is fun to be had when the sun is shining and I have both my babies home.
So now it is almost fall, and quickly it will become winter, but instead of dreaming about hot summer days spent at our local water park or camping with friends, I’m going to do my best to just enjoy the right now (even if fall, winter, and spring are my least favorite seasons). Maybe now I will finally get around to all of that laundry.
While we are on the topic of time, have you heard of Jord Watches? These gorgeous wooden watches are a fashion must have right now. I am always apprehensive about ordering products online because you can never be sure what you will actually receive upon delivery, but I am completely satisfied with this watch. My favorite part, and what I was most surprised by, is how light weight the watch is considering its wooden. I honestly hardly feel the watch when it is on. If you are looking to get a watch for yourself, or you are looking for a gift idea, Jord Watches are a fantastic option. If you are interested in the watch I have, here is the link to find the exact one.
I am actually giving away a 75 dollars credit to one lucky follower that you can use towards your own Jord Watch. Click here for details on how to enter. Giveaway ends on September 20th. Good luck!
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
