July Currently and Intentions

 Hey loves. This month is already flying by it seems. Another month and a lot going on. At the same time I am trying to slow down, be more intentional, spend more time unplugged, with family, and less routine, less stress.... For the past week Ella has been on vacation with her dad. It started off with just Anna, Austin, and Me for a few days then Brian ended up being stuck at home for a while too. It has been a different flow/schedule but wonderful being able to spend time together. 

First up on today's agenda is  I am linking up with  Anne for another month of currently. Followed by a look back at June's intentions and my intentions for July. This months prompts are:  enjoyinghavinghopingpicking, and using.

~ enjoying ~

Enjoying being home from vacation and relaxing outside, reading while my kids play in the mini pool.

 ~having ~ 

Having more date nights. We got a night out on vacation, then the week we came home for my birthday dinner. In a few weeks again for my sisters birthday dinner, and another planned just the two of us the end of July. This never happens since having 3 kids.

hoping ~

Hoping Ella is having fun on vacation with her dad. Really hoping and praying she doesn't come back with a huge attitude after being gone for 13 days, which is the longest time she has been away. 

~ picking ~

Picking up chip and goldfish crumbs all over the house. How can my kids not eat without making a mess. 

using ~ 

Using a tree stump as my table. We finally got some trees cut down. The company only took 2 months from the time they said they were going to come out.
