Around Here: June
Happy June! The official start of summer is right around the corner, which is difficult to believe! Below are some items that have occurred around here in June, another month that is flying by much too quickly!
-after many months of consistent and steady work, I finally finished the final revisions for my long-term photography project, which I have been working on in total for over five years now. Going into this project I never realized how much work it really was actually going to be; however, it is immensely gratifying conceptualizing an idea and bringing it to fruition. I am now moving onto completing the next steps in this project.
-we have had a little bit of a breather this month as our calendar has not been as hectic, as in previous months, so we have had time to catch up with friends and go to our pool, which has been really nice! We are trying to get as much rest as we can during this time.
-we celebrated Doug’s first Father’s Day together!
-we saw U2 this past weekend and it was a really good concert!
-we are finishing up our parent, baby, and birth classes this weekend!
-I am now feeling quite big, as we have only approximately four weeks or so remaining until we get to meet our baby girl! It seems surreal some days!
-we are pretty much ready, as ready as one can be, for our baby to arrive! Her tiny little clothes that we will need over the next several months, blankets, and bath time related items have all been washed; her car seat and seat bases are installed, thanks to Doug; we ordered the last remaining items that we need; and we started to pack our hospital bags.
-this month I shared images from our Babymoon! We all had a great time together with many wonderful memories with our fur girl, Victory!
-began working on our Promptly Journal for our baby, which beings from pregnancy through eighteen years!
-I finished the first drafts of our two photos books via Artifact Uprising: one celebrating and memorializing our journey to parenthood and the other commemorating our Babymoon!
-we have been giving Victory lots of snuggles and love! We have been enjoying evening walks together in her Hound About! She even went into the nursery on her own last week!
-Victory is recovered from her recent UTI, thankfully, as we were at the vet recently for a recheck!
-Victory got her paws trimmed and a bath this past weekend and she looks, feels, and smells great!
-still using the 1 Second Everyday App to document a second each day — it will be interesting to see the finished video at the end of the year!
-continuing to work on getting fine art prints made, framed, and hung in our home, an ongoing endeavor!
-continuing to watch the second season of The Handmaid’s Tale, a really good series.
-started Sweetbitter, a good series.
-finished reading Sophie Tales, a good read, given to me by a fellow blog reader!
-listening to a myriad of podcasts, especially, at the gym and on walks!
-continuing to make incremental progress on our ever-growing to do list!
