Our July was busy, really busy. We celebrated the Fourth of July with family in the Central Valley, we took a trip to Maui, and did a ton of other seemingly huge things. While these make great memories, you know I love the tiny details that I hope my little ones will remember most when they’re grown. Like the fleeting life of a sparkler, and how we have to drive to Grandma’s house to buy any because they are illegal here, and how I always make them pose together for at least one photo during each beach trip.
I hope that they grow to a point where they cherish these photos forever, and I hope it brings back all the details they may forget with age. I hope they remember sand in their toes and dirt in their hair because they were allowed to (safely) explore the world around them. I hope they remember forts in the living room and pretending to be asleep after promising to nap in them (doesn’t happen), and I hope they remember evening walks to cool down because the summer has been too hot to be inside the house. I want them to remember far away family coming to visit and that distance doesn’t mean anything if you’re willing to maintain a relationship with someone. I want them to cherish these #LifeInBetween moments forever, just like I will.

I’ve had such a great time following along with your #LifeInBetween moments on Instagram as well, and I encourage you to keep noticing, enjoying, and documenting them. If you haven’t shared any, won’t you join me?
