We figured a little get away at the end of our Summer would be most rewarding for us as a family. And it really was. We just got back from a few days at the beach, where we got to play in the sand, swim every morning in the salty sea and enjoy a great ice-cream or two. The weather was kinda perfect. Summer helped her Daddy dig and build castles with that little red shovel and we went through just a few cans of sun spray! It was super fun watching Summer experience her first beach holiday! My 17 months is such a fun stage, Summer’s learning new things all the time and chatting away as sweet toddlers do…

As we got back to Chicago I felt a real sense of gratitude. Feeling at home refreshed and recharged for another semester ahead. It was good to get away and it was good to be home.
