Contrary to popular belief, I am not just a sponsored post machine. I am actually a living, breathing, real life human being.
If you’ve been around here for some time, you might know that besides running this blog I am also a dance teacher and help run the family dance studio. If you’ve been paying really good attention, you might remember that spring is a crazy time for me (and that’s putting it lightly). My weekends are almost entirely consumed with dance competitions and my weekdays are almost entirely consumed with preparing for our end of year recital, organizing next year’s class registrations, and planning for next year’s competition company auditions.
So if you’ve been thinking, “She’s been doing an awful lot of sponsored posts lately”, you’re right. I have. Because I lit-traly have had no extra time for posting just for the fun of it. I am not above admitting that when my time is limited, you bet your behind I’m going to be posting things that are helping support my family.
But… good news! This post means that I am officially over the hurdle. Life can resume. And so, I’m going to share a few peeks into what life is starting to look like now that it’s slowing to a normal pace.
I swear that nobody appreciates spring like a Minnesotan. When you’ve spent the last 6 months practically in hibernation, the blue of the sky and the warmth of the sun look and feel like heaven. Goodbye, seasonal affective disorder.
Not to mention, I hate wearing socks and shoes. I would be barefoot 24/7 if my plantar fasciitis and the cold weather didn’t have a say. The feeling of green grass under your toes is second to none.
Nicer weather also means that I get to sit out on my deck with a good book. The current good book: #GIRLBOSS. And yes, I still check out books from the library. I think I single-handedly keep my local library in business with overdue fees. I have a Kindle, but nothing beats the feeling and the smell of a physical book in your hands. Right?
#GIRLBOSS has so many awesome quotable’s such as this gem. Being a dance teacher who works closely with today’s youth, this one in particular speaks to me.
And this girl. The older she gets, the more I fall in love with her. She’s got more personality in her tiny little body than I can believe. If she doesn’t grow up to be in some field of entertainment or performing, I will be shocked. A less busy dance schedule means I get to spend more nights with this one, and I couldn’t be happier.
What does spring mean for you and your family? Are you also a physical book snob? Let’s chat about it in the comments below!
