Happy July! I hope everyone was able to stay cool this past weekend. I cancelled my original birthday party plans (an outdoor picnic) because it just felt too irresponsible to ask everyone to bake outside at 105 degrees. Even at 10:00am it felt too hot to be outside... so I think I made the right call.
Jeremiah asked me what I was proud of from last year and what I want to accomplish this year - I am proud that I grew more confident at work and in motherhood, and am actually feeling a lot stronger mentally and emotionally too (although I did have a meltdown on Thursday, but I am chalking that up to being tired and needing to cry just to let it out). My Q2 report on my goal of being more social and connecting with people is: still on track! I want to continue that this year. This year I also want to dig deeper into my hobbies: dancing, cooking, and maybe... game more often?. I really love that Justine loves gardening, and though I wouldn't pick gardening for my own hobby, I already have hobbies that I do enjoy so I want to develop those more.
Stay hydrated and apply sunscreen, everyone!!
