Happy Summer my Friends!!!!.
How in the world are you?
I hope that you enjoyed your 4th of July holiday weekend and were able to take advantage of some of the restrictions that are being lifted as we come out to meet the world from our Covid captivity and quarantine solitude!!!.
Well, as we gently make our way out to civilization while being careful and following guidelines, I am excited to be able to chat with you about the joy of organizing so that you can make room for what matters in your life.
By now, you may have already tried to organize every single corner of your home and may have done it multiple times during quarantine and are ready to head out instead of staying in.
Well, yes, me too!! So, I want to invite you to take a moment to look at your summer gear and see what you can do to organize your home to make it efficient to grab and go to really optimize the summer activities you have planned.
One of the things I look forward to is spending time with family during the summer and really taking it nice and slow. I have been looking forward to this summer’s family events because, yes, we missed everything last year. As a result, I’ve been itching to get ready to hit the road now that things are opening up.
So, I have organized my “summer” car bag! Yes, that is a bag I keep in the back of the trunk with beach towels, sun block, and blankets for our impromptu beach trips. Yeah.. My summer car trunk is ready and I went to be with my family for the holiday!!
As you know, this summer is unique for all of us because we are easing up on some of the restrictions that have held us hostage because of the pandemic.
This past holiday weekend I had the exquisite pleasure to spend time with one of my sisters in her new home. It is the first visit with my family after being vaccinated. The entire time we were together, we lived in excitement and joy!!..Every moment was filled with lots of food, laughter, crazy moments, tons of rain, teenagers going out having fun for the first time in months socializing. The younger kids were cooking. We all sang karaoke until the wee hours of the morning and watched crazy random strange movies that made no sense for the fun of it. Seriously, we put on quite an amazing concert. Yes, our family can sing and sing very well!..
What I loved so much is the excitement of being together doing lots of small stuff and even doing nothing. What a joy to exchange a hug, A smile, a tender kiss from a child or my sister.
What an incredible joy to be with family again, live, in person!.
No zoom calls, no phone calls, no Facetime! I mean live and in person. It was sooo amazing to be with my sister and brother in law and our teenagers and preteens. It was just so wonderful to enjoy simple moments with family again.
Finally, the prospect of things going back to normal and us cautiously stepping out of our home has been so wonderful for us.
What have you done during the quarantine to prepare your home and space so that you are organized and feel calm about focusing on other areas of your life?
I am curious to know, have you also reached a place where you can exhale, breathe and enjoy life again and if so, how do you plan on organizing your time, and your space to enjoy a nice summer break?. What do you like to organize traditionally in the summer?
I like to organize my ““summer” car bag” What organizing activity do you do to dive into summer. I’d love to hear from you!!..
Cheers to a summer with more safe, live and in person gatherings with those we love.
Stay organized and enjoy your summer.
