Fourth of July: Weekend Diary

Photo by Annie Shak

I’m currently on a life high. You know those moments you want to box up and infinitely keep? I had a lot of those over this Fourth of July weekend.

It’s tradition in our family to also celebrate the evening of the third [why not honor the greatest country over two days]?! Our childhood friends fly in each year to bring midwest charm to the west coast, and we make memory after memory. The kind of memories I want to relive over and over again.

Of course, my sweet nieces also love this holiday. Picture a lot of sand castles [half-toppled over] and a lot of dripping ice cream cones. Malibu might have been better than Disneyland this weekend.

Naturally, I took too many photos… so here’s a weekend diary for a peek into the fun. This week’s Mind Ready Monday message is to indulge in some celebratory life time. Get your friends together. Round up your family. Create memories + make time for each other.

Wishing you a happy Monday back at work today. xx
