We’re spending all summer fasting from the things that erode our souls and feeding on the things that nourish them. I don’t know about you, but it’s going to take me a week (at least) to set myself up to be successful in this. If your soul is feeling crowded or clouded by anything but pure joy and hope, I invite you to join me in this movement.
I hesitate to post any pictures from my phone yet because Jim’s will be infinitely more beautiful.But Hadley just really owned her first ever recital this weekend and it was very exciting to witness. It sure as heck made up for all the grief I felt dragging her into lessons a few weeks in a row last winter when she developed sudden anxiety. She has completely overcome her fear now and her confidence now shines before her beautifully at the barn.
Immediately following Hadley’s party we just kept, well, partying. It was really fun. A little loud, but mainly fun. We especially loved how everyone was a champ at sleeping when they were supposed to (except Hadley and Bastien, natch). I thought Liam was just such a cute little sleeper and Bastien shared that sentiment. First thing in the morning he even printed out a picture of proof.
Besides the mid-May snow that called for a quick change from backyard Olympics to basement, this party came off without a hitch. Hadley had specific requirements like laurel wreaths, multiple athletic events, an American flag cake, AND cupcake torches…and I think they were all brilliant!
I’m not gonna lie. That was really fun.
