Summer as a 3 yr. Old

I have a major obsession with my adorable niece. Her name is Isabelle. We all call her Bizz. BizzerOne of my favorite things to do in the summertime is hang out with this delightful little 3 year old, and my first official week of summer has held a whole lot of Bizz, which means that summer is off to a great start!!!

My Girl and I

Hanging with Bizz (and various other kids under the age of five) is pretty fantastic, and it also gives me a fun excuse to do a lot of things that your typical 26-year-old might not normally do on days off. Examples include, but are not limited to:

1) Draw with Sidewalk Chalk


This is a very under-rated pass-time. With just a few sticks of chalk, a plain bit of blacktop can be transformed pretty incredibly into a whole new world!


#2: Get in Touch With The Inner Kiddie Pool

#3: Make Jello Jigglers

#4: Color!


#5: Be a Messy Eater


#6: Eat Obscene Amounts of Watermelon


#7: Let it All Hang Out. . .


#8: Share a little Platonic-yet-Public Display of Affection


And pretty much do any other wonderful things that strike your fancy! These are all pictures from the last few days of my life, and I feel so lucky that I get to see my summer through the eyes of a few under-the-age-of-three kiddos! Such fun!

Dabbling in decoratives is an ongoing obsession. I love having a go at This, That and the Other. . . tackling projects that tickle my fancy, hoarding costumes (for the "Someday" that I own a dress-up tea-house for grown-ups) and hosting themed parties whenever I am not immersed in teaching French and Writing to high school students. In the interest of full transparency, there's something serious you should know: I overuse the ellipsis . . . frequently. Embarassingly enough, it seems to be the punctuation that best captures my stream of thought as it flits off of one subject and towards the next!
