("July" script from Harley Quinn and Co.)
That's it! There's just a few weeks left of my girls' summer break, then a new school year starts (which definitely feels like a new season). It's bittersweet.
This month has been good to us, and I'm sad to see it go...
I've been documenting our summer together, so at least there's that. ;) I completed all 4 weeks this month (which means I met one of my goals for July).
See our summer break week by week here.
We've been enjoying our summer together. It has been relaxing. Some days are lazier than others, but that's summer, right? I haven't done as much crafting as I thought I would have with my girls. They are getting some crafting in with their pocket letter pen pals though:
That's been a fun, weekly activity.
I have been doing so much scrapbooking within the last few weeks (it's 'cause I had been so behind!).
I completed my memory book for April and May and shared my layouts earlier this month.
I have a separate, smaller memory book for June and July. I have been keeping up with it, so I'm officially caught up with my Project Life // pocket scrapbook. I shared Tips for Catching Up with Project Life this month as though I'm an expert or something. (I'm not).
If you're interested in enhancing your photos, this month I shared how I use the VSCO Cam app to enhance my photos. See that post here.
This month I got techy apparently. I invited my sister Jasmine to share How to Digitally Crop and Resize Your Photos.
I also shared how I use the A Beautiful Mess app on my phone to create photo collages for Project Life. I blogged about that yesterday- see it here.
Anyway, I'm feeling mopey as summer break is coming to an end, but there's still hot, summer days ahead of us! This month I shared 5 refreshing, Greek yogurt dessert recipes for summer. See that post here.
I also added 2 recipes to my Greek yogurt 52 ways project:
#20 strawberry dessert pie and #21 mini chocolate mousse pie
Finally, how'd I do with my July goals you ask? I'll tell you!

For real: catch up with my 2015 pocket memory book / Project Life book
- I have to tell you: I feel quite accomplished. ;)
Do at least 1 fun activity with my girls every day of their summer break (see our activities so far here)
- Eh. Some days were lazy, but overall, we had some great days. I give myself an A-.
Continue with our summer memory book and keep up
Work through our summer bucket list Begin creating a calming bedroom, for crying out loud
- I made a few changes in my bedroom. I do feel like I can breathe easier in there, so that's progress.
