‘The Great Gatsby.’ This is my favorite book written by my favorite author and I usually read it once or twice a year. I’m always able to pick up something new that I never noticed before and the symbolism is so rich and deep.
Fair weather friends. #enoughsaid
Maddy going into Kindergarten in the fall. Aside from the paperwork that gets submitted to the school, I never realized what goes into getting a kid prepped and ready to start school. In PA, kids are required to know their address, their telephone number, how to write their first and last names, colors, numbers and more. Along with this comes the supplies, backpack, lunch box, school clothes, etc.
Maddy’s 5th birthday party! I’ve reserved a private party space for her at an indoor inflatable playground but I’ve been toying with whether or not to have a theme for the party. I’ve been scouring Pinterest like it’s my J.O.B. but I haven’t really come up with anything that grabs my attention. If I’m being honest, my gut inclination is to kick this whole thing down into low gear and not even stress about it. I grew up without “Pinterest parties” and my life turned out just fine. These days, I feel the need for simplicity.
I would absolutely LOVE to do a cruise to Europe. Unfortunately, my bank account and available time off balance doesn’t feel the same way.
