Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! We had a great one and it is still going on for a few more days! My husband took a few days off from work and we have been on a little staycation of sorts and have really been enjoying our surroundings. I have to be honest, though...it is taking all of the restraint I have not to start thinking about Christmas preparations. I feel like I start dreaming about decorations, gifts, and baking earlier and earlier each year and that needs to stop.
This holiday season I am determined to savor every single day and stay present!

Here is just a little glimpse into our lives over the past few weeks. I just love my little family!
|Great Cajun Cook-Off and Food Fest!...so much fun.|
|...then home to play with our doggie and chalk...and cars!|
|My birthday was perfect!|
|at an art festival on the most beautiful day ever!...complete with funnel cakes and beer!|
Also...do not attempt to get a family picture when your son is over-tired:
...And in case you decide it is a good idea to hang from a tree like a monkey, be prepared to have your hand ripped to shreds:
It seems like my life can sometimes just fly by without really enjoying it and I hate that. I feel like sometimes I miss really fantastic moments because I am too focused on what's next..."What am I going to wear to that party?," "What am I going to bake for Thanksgiving?," "What color scheme do I want to use for our Christmas tree this year?" ...but I can promise you one thing...none of those questions popped into my head in those moments pictured above...I was 100% present.
