summer...

anyone that knows me, knows that i adhore summer!!!
it's the best time of the year...
time for bbq's, vacation, beach time, paddleboarding, junking, more beach time...
i've been away from blogging for a while simply cause i've either been transporting my son to the beach or to his very first job...or, working in the garage...
i'm coming to the quick realization that summer is coming to an end, as i just received the registration info for my son's senior year of high school...then it hit me...the bit of excitement and sadness that comes with having your youngest child go into his senior year of high school...
although i'm very excited for him and excited to see what god has in store for his soon to be adult life, i'm sad that my baby is no longer a baby...
he's getting his license next week...
and, although i'm hanging on to the edge with my fingernails, i know i have to let go and trust that god has a firm grip on him and everything will be okay...
we just got back from a lil getaway with the family...we went to palm springs and we are blessed to have had our daughter join us and we had a great time...just sitting by the pool...a lil junking, massage, eating, reading, resting and spending time with each other...those are the times i cherish...i wish i had more of them, but as i get older i know that the lil amounts of time we have with our family and friends that we really love and adhore, we need to appreciate every lil second...
we have not done all we set out to do this summer, and i get anxious about that, but i have to stand back, breathe and be okay with whatever happens cause i know god is in control of my life...
blessings to you and i hope you have an amazing summer {whats left}...
cherish those that you love...
Stacey's 28th birthday!
