And Life Just Keeps On Keepin' On...

Yesterday was a good day.  I woke up feeling confident, energetic and ready to take on the world.  Don't you just love days like that?!  I know I do!

The Kid woke up ready to be outdoors and active, and since that isn't always the case, I chose to take advantage of the situation and pushed him out the door.  We started out bouldering at a gym in John's Landing called The Circuit.  It's a great option for all ages and levels!

Having a fear of heights, The Kid is much bolder than I am when it comes to climbing, but it was fun to spot for him and cheer on his accomplishments!

Next we headed to Club Sport for some basketball and swimming.  The summer here in the Pac NW has been hot and beautiful and I've loved taking advantage of the pool when I get the chance!

On Sunday, one of my trusted advisor/friends recommended a book to me.  I have been struggling with a condition commonly referred to as "people pleasing" and he suggested the book "Don't be nice, be real," with love.  I sat drying in the sunshine while The Kid splashed around and immediately fell in love with the text.

I'm nearly half-way through this handbook now, and so excited to share a few of my "ah-ha" moments soon!  If you, or someone you know, struggles with putting themselves first - go get this book.

I ended the day with creativity time at Jenni's house.  Her son is turning 2 this weekend, and she has some GREAT plans for his birthday.  We started constructing things for the hullabaloo and I'm excited to share photos from the festivities soon!

Creative time calls for dark chocolate and wine!
(what, doesn't everybody use a mason jar for their wine?!)
