Amazing Things About Summer

For our first summer in a new place and our first summer with a baby, we are finding an unbelievable number of things to enjoy about this summer. Here’s the short list:

1. Ice Cream

Though I’ve been staying mostly dairy free while nursing Ella, the hot days of Charlotte just sometimes CALL for ice cream. Luckily, we live right down the street from an amazing mom & pop shop that is absolutely delicious.

2. Swimming

Since I have the ability to create my own hours, I’ve been taking every opportunity to get Ella (and myself) in the water for exercise and refreshing fun.

3. Women’s FIFA World Cup.

And BOY what an ending!

4. Shark Week. 

We didn’t have cable last year in July, so I am REALLY soaking it in this year.

5. Swinging

Whether we walk to a local park or just downstairs to the baby swing hanging from our deck, Ella loves it and there’s nothing like a cool breeze from swinging on a hot summer day.


6. Iced Coffe

Just a little something to look forward to every afternoon, I pour black coffee over ice and then just add a bit of unsweetened Almond Milk. Yum.

7. Ceiling Fans Running 24/7

What can I say? I have an irrational love for ceiling fans.
