hello weekend and hello summer.
saturday morning my alarm went off very early for a long run with some lovely ladies. it felt so good to get seven miles done before 7am.
after a couple errands we headed to the splash pad to celebrate margot’s third birthday!
the kids and i headed to the y for a quick workout this afternoon.
ready for a swim!
and swimming we did!
our littlest fish.
kenley loved having kennedy over today. she smothered her with kisses.
our weekend commitments have ended and we took our first official swim in the pool on friday.
needless to say, we enjoyed our first official weekend of summer!
Happy Friday! Don’t forget to pop over to see what these ladies are loving:

92 year old Harriette Thompson is now the oldest woman to ever finish a marathon. Not to mention, she is a two time cancer survivor. How awesome. You can read more about her story here and here.

Ya’ll know how much I love my Simplified Planner. Well, there is now a Simplified Planner app which was released this week and I am so excited for this handy electronic sidekick to accompany my planner.

Mary Beth has mentioned Sheryl Sandberg a few times and I have added her book Lean In to my wish list, but I haven’t read anything by her yet… until now. This week Sheryl posted the most heart wrenching, yet beautiful and inspiring post I’ve ever read regarding the sudden death of her husband. I will definitely be reading her book. You can read the post on Facebook or on Today.

Misha mentioned this last week, but I feel it’s worth noting again. Oh Joy Band-Aids are now available at Target! This is big news for those of you who have toddlers who live for Band-Aids, much like Kenley does. I bought three boxes in order to get the free Oh Joy Striped First Aid bag which is adorable! This is definitely going to be my new carrying case for my oils.

Most importantly, this was a huge week for Charlotte Reece. She had a successful surgery on Tuesday and we are all so thankful. Please continue to keep Charlotte and her family in your thoughts and prayers. You can also follow along with her journey at Charlotte’s story: childhood liver cancer.
Your turn! What are you loving this week?
Kenley’s first soccer season has come to an end. She had a good time practicing and playing each week. I think overall she did a great job even though her attention span was short at times. However, she always looked forward to the post-game team snack. I shared a lot of pictures from her first game, but not many since, so here are some more action shots from her first season.
Her first official sports photo, which happened to be the day after she got her stitches removed.
It was a great season Little Monsters!
