HELLO KANGAROO | It is Caden’s practice to wear a kangaroo onesie he was given by his sister last Christmas when at the airport wishing one of his siblings a safe journey. He is such a goof and it is so wonderful that he is so comfortable in his own skin that he can don that of another. I admire his courage and sense of silly. We need more silly in the world and I’m happy to have access to it 24/7. And then I found this article: Embrace Your Weird. Those who smiled? You are my kind of people. Those who weren’t sure what to make of a 6’1″ kangaroo boy? When you loosen up and lean into the weird you will be my kind of people. Those who sneered and pointed? You are not my kind of people, but I knew that already, this was just unfortunate confirmation.
HELLO EMPOWERMENT WORKSHOP | I have learned to lean in and accept my own power. It’s been an incredible journey. I’m going to enjoy this workshop!
HELLO MEN IN SUITS | I’m learning to enjoy these little encounters. (see empowerment above)
HELLO WRITING CLASS | I’ve missed my weekend classes with Brian. Maybe I can convince Cole to join me at this one: Writing Great Characters?
HELLO CREATIVE KIDS | Creativity meets compassion and I’m looking forward to seeing the Wickedly Frozen Spectacular being put on by a trio of talented sisters.
HELLO WIMBLEDON FINALS | One of my favourite events of the year. Strawberries, champagne and tennis. Perfect!
HELLO SUNBURN | Who knew you could get a sunburn in Freddy? Well, live and learn (always). The burn may not last, but the memories of family, friends, laughter, lobster, hugs and smiles will live in my heart for a very long time. I must come up with more excuses to get down East. Special thanks to an old friend who made a trip out to see me!
HELLO RE-ENTRY | As much as I enjoy time away, I really enjoy coming home.
HELLO MATH | We’re now back to focusing: a month of math to keep Caden’s brain active through at least part of the summer. Learning and play, learning and play. Trying to strike a balance!
HELLO MONDAY | You are my favourite day of the week. I love that you provide me with 52 fresh starts every year.
What are you saying hello to on this brand new Monday?
