I’m excited to share with you a new series I’m starting called, “Talk Till Dawn”, I want this to be about my everyday life, the things I’m reading, eating, my everyday ups and down, along with photos that I’ve taken over the week.
I haven’t decided yet how often this will be, right now I’m just going to get it going and see what comes of it. I encourage you to share with me similar situations and we can all support one another.
My life and home is far from perfect even though I always share with you pretty home decor picture. Now from time to time I’ll give you a look at how things can get out of control like everyone else’s life.
Wow this month is really getting away from me, I’ve been busier than I’d planned so let me fill you in on all the happenings.
It’s been crazy busy at the salon with all the proms and weddings so that’s been keeping me on my toes and it’s also been the start of wedding season. And YES Bridezillas do exist and I’ve experienced it first hand. All I can say is I feel sorry for the groom, I hope he knows what he’s getting himself into (ha ha).
My boys have also moved out. My oldest purchased a place, acreage with a barn on the property that he’s converting into a home. That’s always been my dream so I’m excited to be helping with that project. It’s going to be hard for me to let him make his own choices and stand back. But doesn’t he know I have all kinds of good ideas running around in this crazy head of mine, lol! It’s going to take great restraint on my part to wait and be asked for my opinion rather than me just throw it out there, but I’m determined to control myself.
Our youngest also started a new job and moved to the other side of the state so it’s been a little lonely around here. I do have to say I’m to that point in my life where I’m okay with my kids moving on, now I couldn’t have said that a year ago, but these changes are good and I feel like they’re both in the right place making the right choices in their lives.
I love them both but it’s time for hubby and I to be empty nesters and I feel good about the change. I’m looking forward to it being just the two of us in the home. I’m fortunate that both our boys still live nearby and we can see them every day if we’d like.
Anyone else finally get to the point where it’s okay to let the kids go and focus on yourself and your spouse again? It will be a change but I’ve already checked into taking some photography classes, I’ve let them know at work that I can put in more hours if need be, and I’m going to take painting classes. Wow that didn’t take long for it to be all about ME did it? LOL
Our weather here is so darn HOT and steamy. We jumped from spring to summer over night without any slow, gradual warm up. I’m not a tropical weather kind of girl so I’m really hating having the air on and not being able to spend any time outside. I’m mowing the lawn a 7am before the day heats up and waiting until the sun goes down in the evening to water my flowers. It’s even been too hot to use the fire pit. And lets talk about the mosquitos, they are monster size this year and out 24 hours a day. I’ve been using essential oils on my exposed skin when I’m outside to keep them away. It doesn’t do the best job, but I refuse to use OFF or anything like it. I hate the though of chemicals on my skin. Let’s just say I spend a lot of time swatting them away!
It’s hard to believe June will be this week. Where did May go? I’ll be back to show you the flowers on my front porch next week and share with you a few changes in the landscaping.
Until next time take care and thank you for spending the time talking till dawn with me today!
