Farewell Summer

The end of summer is finally upon us….

This summer has been a kaleidoscope of brilliant moments combined with slow buttery sunsets.  Incredible memories but also lots of sleeping in, eating ice cream, and pool time.

It’s those times that I think I will remember the most.  Going to the library and losing ourselves in the stacks for an hour.  Picking out new authors to try and then curling up on the couch together at home to read our new books.  The excitement she had telling me about the characters in her books and reading aloud to me her favorite parts.

Lots of ice cream dates.  Letting her pick as many toppings as she wanted and getting a sticky kiss after she was done.  Laughing about how she would say she was full after her meals but always have room for ice cream.

Backyard barbeques, fireworks, and swimming time.  Playing with her favorite pup at my parents house.  The smell of sunscreen and chlorine when I lean in to pick her tired little body up when it’s time to leave.  The way that the sun bleaches the front part of her hair and brings out the tiny freckles on her nose…….

The incredible amount of pride on her face when she won her first place in her first horse show.  The way her face sought mine out as she looked for me in the crowd and ran to me for a  hug when she was all done.  How she told me it was the “best weekend ever” and how happy she was…….

And this moment……that now has truly had time to sink in.

Our sweet warrior princess, our Wonder Woman in the making……now has her very own prosthetic running blade.  Running everywhere now.  The amount of confidence it’s given her in a few short weeks.  The way she talks about starting new goals, like running a 5k and inspiring others to start reaching for their goals.  The outpouring of love and support for our girl–from the generous donation of the blade from Hanger Clinic and Endolite, to having our story shared by Rachel Hollis.

Yes, Summer of 2019, you were incredible.

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
