We are nearly through day THREE with no electricity. You know what I miss the most? Light. Our kitchen is in the center of our house, and area with no windows. This means I am washing dishes my lantern-light. I pretty much feel like Mary Ingalls (the blind sister) as I wash my dishes with soap, water, and touch.
Today’s blog post is brought to you by McDonald’s (instead of Starbucks). As much as I love good coffee (and you know I do) I am taking full advantage of the dirty, germ infested play place to kid my children occupied. I am letting my kiddos run wild (and Tilly hook up to wi-fi) while I blog. You’re welcome.
Instead of mourning the loss of food in my fridge, light in my kitchen, internet service and laundry facilities, I thought I would focus on my Top Five Happy Memories from August.
5. I got to photograph the births of TWO beautiful babies this month.
4. Camping along the Oregon Coast with friends and family.
3. Catching all of my kids off guard and pulling off a family Pajama Ride!
2. Arriving home from our camping trip to enjoy chocolate covered strawberries and cherries from Shari’s Berries. And I have to say, these strawberries were hands down the best chocolate covered strawberries I have ever eaten!And number one, hands down, getting the most amazing, happy news ever from Apollo’s pulmonologist and being in the middle of a very successful tube wean!
I’d say August was a winning month for us. What was your favorite memory this month?
