Here in Austin, it’s the first full week of Summer vacaction. Austin ISD, let out last week, and now the roads are just a little bit less crowded, the swimming pools are a bit more busy, and the shaved ice trailers will all be opening.This week, my kiddo goes from being 4 to 5. Instead of having the party at our house, we signed up to use our neighborhood clubhouse and pool. That way 60 adults and kids won’t be running all over the place, and the area has enough fridge storage for all the beverages, bathrooms to change in, and even a play area for the little tiny ones who aren’t yet swimming. Plus there are lifeguards on duty, so I can relax and enjoy an adult beverage.
I’ve put together some of my favorite articles for you to read through this week while you spend some time relaxing at your favorite swimming place. Here’s to desires and their completions!
