Summer is here!

This is probably old news to most of you, but it just sort of hit me today.  It hit me in the weirdest possible way, too.  I was biking into work and shortly after passing Camp Randall, I got a craving to go to a football game.  It occurred to me, then, that I would not be going to any football games until summer’s over.  Which means that summer is here!  Hooray!

So, what are you kids up to this summer?  I’m playing on a tennis team (as usual and, as usual, not playing very well) and taking the annual family trip up north to Presque Isle for a week of lounging by the lake, reading crappy novels, taking naps, kayaking, playing Scrabble and eating yummy food with family.  We’re also headed out to Colorado at the end of this month for my friend Ingrid’s wedding.  I’m so excited about this because it’s a part of Colorado I’ve never been to — Durango.  Not easy to fly to, either, I will tell you.  At least from Madison.  We are flying Madison to Milwaukee to Denver to Durango, which — incidentally — was significantly cheaper than flying out of Milwaukee.  I digress.  I am really looking forward to the wedding because I know it will be a blast, but I’m also really looking forward to checking out some national parks in the area that have all sorts of preserved Aztec ruins.  Ruins!  Love them.

Anyway, so that’s about all that’s scheduled, I think.  I’d like to get some state park action in, as well as maybe some canoe time out on our lovely lakes.  Right now, though, I’m enjoying biking into work and hitting the tennis ball around.  Life is pretty good.

Except for this craptastic oil spill.  Ugh.

    Sounds like a lovely summer, Kate, although will there be any wedding planning involved? Looking forward to time in the north woods in July myself, as soon as all this Relay business is finished!

There was a day when she learned to #dab and she didn’t tell me. And she just pulled it out at some friends’ house one night, like it was the most natural thing. And while I couldn’t stop laughing, I realized I was witnessing another example of what will be only more big steps away from me and the life I thought the three of us had together. And I know that is beautiful and how it should be. But catching myself, watching that moment, finding it in a photograph? It takes my breath away at how fleeting and transient and amazing this all is. Molly, you are my #everything. I’m better because of you. Being your mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me. By far. And I lived in Italy! #parenting #whyivoteblue #fallinwisconsin #moments #passageoftime #itgoestoofast
Can’t wait to see the pro version of these. Thanks for having us @errinhiltbrandphotography #mylittleweirdo #minisessions #annualportraits #madisonprophotography #imsolucky #mylittledabber #rainbowsandcorduroy #lussierfamilyheritagecenter
Have I mentioned recently how into these flowers 🌸 I am?! #thebouqscompany #thebouqs #subscriptionaddiction #freshflowers #farmtovase #gerberadaisies
And some @thebouqsco plucked out and cut small to be a little accompaniment to the powder room. Fresh flowers are the everything. #25days
Fresh flowers 🌺 on a Friday when temps plummet?! Yes please! 🙋🏻‍♀️ Thanks @thebouqsco for making a blustery #Wiscolife sunny inside. #freshflowers #dontmindifido #gerberadaisies #subscriptionaddiction #fallinwisconsin #farmtohome #thebouqscompany
I don’t know what these are sold as, but all children of lawyers know them as #chipclips. And even now that I’m nearly two decades into the practice of law, I still see them as chip clips. #thanksdad #chipclips #kidsoflawyers #childrenoflawyers #officesupplies #officesuppliesthatmakeithome
