Loving: My new Saltwater Sandals. I believe these will become a new summer-time staple in our house. They are comfortable, classic, and go with anything. 

Reading: I finished reading Two Kisses for Maddy by Matthew Logelin about a week ago. It is a beautiful, touching, memoir about a man who lost his wife 27 hours after she gave birth to their daughter, Maddy. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made truly think about what matters most in life. I have just started reading Bloom by Kelle Hampton this week. Bloom is another beautiful memoir about the birth of Kelle's second child, Nella. It is a story that pulls on my heartstrings and reminds me to find the everyday beauty in life. 

Watching: We have been watching the Olympics and a little pre-season football. 

Anticipating: The start of the school year. My classroom is done. The year is laid out. Now its time to plan the first days and meet my students.

Listening To:  A variety of music. I have had The Nadas, The Gaslight Anthem, and John Mayer blaring through my speakers lately. 

Planning: Still working on the start of the 2012 - 2013 school year. The ideas have moved from thoughts floating around in my head to paper. Now they to move from paper to a digital, easy-to-share, document. 

Working On: Making the most of the day. The noisy moments, the quiet moments, and the in-between moments. I am also working on finding a way to carve out time to write and edit photos. It is something I love but not something I make regular time for. 

Wishing: To make the most of the last two and half days of summer and a wonderful start to the school year. 

What are your currently loving, anticipating, wishing?

The inspiration and idea for this post came from the beautiful Danielle at Sometimes Sweet.

  1. I need to check out those books! I'm always on the hunt for good books.

    Enjoy your last few days of summer vacation!

    1. Thanks, Kristen! Both books are wonderful. I have to warn you that Matt's book does have a lot of cuss words in it but it is so worth the read. Have a great Monday! XOXO
