This summer has been a total whirlwind in the best possible way.

Unlike last year, this year is really feeling more “normal”. (Also, could I just say HOORAY for science for easing my mind a bit? Both girls are officially vaccinated!

We’ve done some traveling and have been enjoying the longer days this time of year. And we have more fun in store before we go back to school in mid-to-late August.

So let’s get into this potluck things, mmkay?

Let’s Discuss Highlights:

  • The new design: Did you notice that my site looks a little different? If you didn’t before, I hope you do now! We overhauled the design of TSP this month, and I am so so so so pleased with the results. If you haven’t had a chance to poke around yet, please do! I’d love to know your thoughts.
  • The beach: We went to Orange Beach, Ala. with family in June, and it was a delight. We stayed in a condo that had a pool, a lazy river and easy beach access, so we basically spent all day every day outside in the water. The girls had a blast, and so did we. We ventured into Florida one day, too, to check out a fish market and brought home the most amazing catch for dinner.
  • Memphis: We visited for the Fourth of July and got to spend time with grandparents, as well as cousins (and extended family!) as everyone converged to be together. Our kids met their cousins from Illinois and Ohio, and it was so incredibly fun to watch them play together.

Let’s discuss action items:

It seems that everything that was released by the Supreme Court this summer was just… bad news for everyone all around.

And I have a lot of anger and sadness about all of it, especially that one that impacts MY health and the health of MY kids and all the people who have uteruses.

There’s a lot that I could say, but I’m going to hold my tongue because I’m still processing and have been looking for places to donate…

Now Let’s Talk About This Monthly Love List…

To recap, my potluck, as defined by the folks at Merriam-Webster is:

the regular meal available to a guest for whom no special preparations have been made… a communal meal to which people bring food to share —usually used attributively ; whatever is offered and available in given circumstances or at a given time.

Now who’s ready to see what ended up on my list for the summer of 2022?!?
