Weekend reading: May 14, 2016

Enjoying the beach

From Instagram: {Most of} my people.

After a whirlwind few months, we packed up the car the first week of May, making the 18-hour drive to my parents’ new house in Florida. Although we usually drive straight through, we decided to stop halfway and stay in a KOA cabin, which made the trip much more bearable with 6 kids (including a nursing, teething baby), a dog and two fish.

While not exactly a vacation, my hope for this month was to get my work hours back under control (more on this later), wean myself back down to one midmorning cup of coffee (success!), and just have fun with the kids. We’re still juggling work and school (and standardized tests to boot!), but we’ve made time for almost-daily trips to the pool, several outings (including Legoland this coming Monday!) and even a few dates.

I’m also working on some changes here at Life Your Way—again!—that have me excited about getting back to regular blogging. I appreciate your patience with me since Lucas was born!

Have a great weekend!

P.S. The hashtag #maybehedoesnthityou is trending on social media, and for good reason. This is an important read.
