Happy Summer and Happy 4th of July! Wait…Did I just say that? Can you believe that summer is here again? Where does the time go? Not only is it officially summer, but I have been on summer vacation for 5 weeks now, which means… Nope, I’m not going to say it because it would force me to face a horrible reality. So, let’s not talk about the future just yet. Let’s see what I’ve been up to lately!
Documenting: My summer with the hashtag #JamisonSummer17 on Instagram. I got the idea from another blogger and thought it would be cute to look back on my summer and have a record of it forever! You should definitely check it out! I’ve been pretty busy so far this summer! 🙂
It's Hump Day Wednesday and its also Beach Day!!✨ Finally made it and it was such a beautiful day! The beach can be so relaxing and today didn't disappoint. Oh, and I'm putting my end of the year #gifts to good use! Go back 13 photos if you need a reminder. How are you spending your #Wednesday? . . #humpday #humpdaywednesday #beachday #follybeach #edgeofamerica #chs #Charleston #charlestonliving #charlestonlife #explorecharleston #explorechs #pinkexplosion #prettyinpink #ocean #summer #summertime #summerfun #summer2017 #JamisonSummer17 #bloggersconnect #bloggersgetsocial
Accomplishing: Okay, you will be so proud of me. I just can’t ever seem to sit down long enough to read a book. I haven’t read one in years, other than books for work or children’s books for my students. I purchased a couple of audiobooks on Audible last year. I know many people who “read” books this way and they recommended I try it. So, noticed I said I purchased last year, right? I started both books last year and still didn’t put in the time to complete them. I kept saying I would listen to it on one of my long road trips. Problem was I was either never alone or I would need music to keep me awake or would just simply forget. Well, I finally finished a book! I did a road trip to Charlotte recently and thoroughly enjoyed it! I was able to complete over 2/3 of the book on my road trip and finished the rest a few days later. What did I read? You’ll find out below.
Enjoying: Time with friends. I’ve been to a retirement dinner, a housewarming, a bachelorette party, a bridal shower, two weddings, and the beach. Next up, I have a quinceanera this weekend and another wedding to attend the following week. Nothing beats summer! It’s all documented at #JamisonSummer17 🙂
Retirement dinner for a fellow school counselor! She will truly be missed! I can't wait to be like you Toni! However, I will not last 41 years in education. Live it up!!!!✨ ⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵⛵ #retirement #dinner #schoolcounseling #schoolcounselors #schoolcounselorsrock #schoolcounselorsofinstagram #CaliforniaDreaming #summer #summertime #summerfun #summer2017 #JamisonSummer17 #bloggersconnect #bloggersgetsocial #explorecharleston #charlestoneats #chs #Charleston #charlestonlife #lowcountryliving
Hello June! We were 13 deep in this caravan. Notice the red arm and the forehead in the front? That's hubby holding wife who didn't lean over in time. One person is next to me, but she bent over when the pic was snapped. And what you can't see are the 3 sitting in the hatchback. We were being taxied to our end of the year party in the neighborhood. I think this was the best part of our evening, other than the friend who walked through the screen door. Wish we could have captured that! How has your June started for you? ☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀☀ #hellojune #endofschoolyear #bringonsummer #summerfun #summertime #summervibes #June #summer #summer17 #summer2017 #educatorsonvaca #bloggersconnect #bloggersgetsocial #firstdayofsummervacation #JamisonSummer17
Please read the caption on this last one…it is hilarious!
Reading: Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes and I thoroughly enjoyed it! It’s so positive and will have you thinking about your own life. It’s so uplifting and will have you laughing as well! It’s a must read!
Spending: I’m actually restricting myself from spending right now. The budget has gotten a little tighter now that student loans need to be repaid. Bummer. But, I’m not letting that stop me from enjoying my summer. There are always free or inexpensive things to do around here. But from the list above, you can obviously tell I’m spending quality time with friends!
So what are you currently up to?
