Summer Bliss

Summertime...


and the livin's easy! 


It's finally that magical time of year.


As a teacher, I work really (really) hard during the school year, then I get to enjoy two-and-a-half months of recovery and summer bliss. 




As an end-of-year gift, my 2nd grade class made me this sweet diaper cake and a book full of suggested baby names and new-mom advice.

 
Don't you just love their advice?


  This summer, I plan on preparing for the new baby 


and taking a babymoon somewhere...we just don't know where yet!


Sending you some sweet summertime.

Jess, your students left you with the sweetest advice! I know you will cherish those sage words. I've never heard of a babymoon, but I certainly like the sounds of it. Enjoy your summer off. You deserve it. The photos of the beautiful climbing roses make my heart swoon. ♥

The summer weather looks perfect, that pool! It's winter here and is definitely getting rather cold. Summer feels so far away right now.

Tammie Lee said...

Wishing you a wonderful babymoon! I had never heard of that.

Your gate and flower photos are so charming and lovely.

Charming are your students and what they offer to you.

PS loving the song as it fills my wee cabin, thank you!

A baby moon is a very good idea.
