We’re having a pretty great month here. My knee has been so much better, school is out, I’ve been working on some┬ánew writing assignments, and I’ve lined up two quilts that will be published later this year and early next. We’ve been getting really crafty around here, and we’ve had adventures all over the place. It’s been amazing!

I’ve become the queen of the top knot. Not on purpose, and not even particularly well. I’ve been toying with the idea of bandanas, to go the full look. I haven’t had a haircut in a year and a half, I just haven’t had the time. I keep meaning to go, but when I’m in the city my stylist isn’t available. So I’ve been top knotting it and moving on with life. Some days I love it, some days I do not.

I can’t believe it’s already July. My school year typically didn’t end until late June all through my childhood and teaching life, but for some reason I still feel like once July 4th passes my summer is slipping away from me. Which is ridiculous, H still has 2 months to go before she heads back to school. But still, it feels like this marker that time is going way too quickly. And I’m loving this stage with H so much that I don’t want it to go too quickly! But I think we’re definitely making the most of summer so far.
