The Dwindling Days of Summer Vacation


Happy Friday, friends! I'm feeling a little blue today because we have just 10 days left until the start of a new school year. I know many parents get excited for their kids to go back, and there is a tiny part of me that enjoys it too, but overall, I just wish summer lasted longer!


We have had some pretty great adventures this summer and, thankfully, it's not over just yet. This weekend is going to involve a few more adventures, including a road trip with my sister, Jess, and nephew, E. 



The thing is, around this time of the year, each year, I feel like we could have/should have done more. I know part of this feeling is probably tied into social media and "keeping up", but in the long run, it's mostly about me trying to provide my girls with the opportunities and experiences my parents couldn't provide for my sisters and me. When I look back and see a missed opportunity, it really eats at me. 

So, I'll take the next few days and try to make sure we have as many wonderful experiences as possible. I'll see what adventures we might have missed that we can experience in the autumn and winter months instead.

Let's talk end of summer blues. Do you have any summer could have/should have regrets? What do you do to boost your mood when back to school season is right around the corner? Leave a comment below or catch me on social media @mommysblockparty on Facebook or @beautyrepv on Twitter and IG.


Have a fabulous Friday!
