But, like I told my Little, summer wouldn't be summer if it happened year round. It's special because it's a precious bit of time where we break routine and enjoy extra time together doing a whole lotta nothing. So until next summer, we'll be remembering our sweet days and dreaming about the ones to come. Despite our loosey goosey {let's see how many times I can reference foul in this post, so far I count ... Keep Reading
