June was loooooong for us. Seriously, I felt like there were something like fifty-two days in June. By the time we flipped the calendar to July, I was worn out. I was so unbelievably thankful that we had planned to take a little trip with my parents to our Happy Place. My kids had been counting sleeps for days, and I was right there with them -- I could not wait for a three day respite from cooking and cleaning, and it thrilled me to know that I was going to get to spend three days by the pool with the people I love the most.
