mistysmornings My morning walk inspiration today was divine. I dropped the boys at school and on impulse drove right past home and out to the sand. Recently someone posted that she hopes to someday live near enough to the sea that she can put her toes in the water often. That post stirred me to take more advantage that, in fact, I do live that near to the sea and don't put my toes in the water often enough. Today I did and got in a 2 mile walk as well! There are still tourists here and one sweet lady asked me if that was a shark out there. I assured her it was just a dolphin. #stepintoseptember #dailywalk #sunrise #everydaysacred 2d

mistysmornings :: green :: I'm always a little like a back to school student in September. I want to make all new routines and spruce up my house before the holiday season. I absolutely love this book and @cleanmama's cleaning routines and website for this reason. She has inspired me to make some of my own cleaning supplies so the lemon and clove essential oils are on their way from Amazon. Looking forward to greening my cleaning! #augustbreak2015 1w

mistysmornings Our backyard often serves as a flight path for the geese that return to our neighborhood this time of year. Their honking calls remind us to savor the last golden days of summer before the season turns cooler and darker. :: backyard :: #thesummermiracle :: looking up :: #augustbreak2015 2w

mistysmornings :: shadow :: After a long day of hot summer sunshine I often long for the darkening of a potentially stormy sky. A rumble of thunder and flash of lightning is the perfect cozy contrast to days spent mostly outdoors. #thesummermiracle #thehereco 4w

mistysmornings Sweaty-skinned, messy-haired, happy childlike summer days at the park are the best. Sometimes I want to stop time and bottle these days right up. #simplethings #gratitude #thingskidsteachus 1mon
  •   nagzilla72 You look beautiful! 1mon
  •   gonzo5 @mistysmornings what a great idea! Makes wonderful Summer memories. Love Kai and that smile. Is it just me or are toothless smiles the best ever?!! 1mon

mistysmornings Working in my bullet journal, checking off our Summer Bucket List and sitting outside savoring the first cool breezes of the month. Thanks @maramcewin for asking #widn. It's rare we have a Saturday afternoon "off" and I am thoroughly enjoying my time to doodle, plan ahead and dream. Doing so to the sound of chirping crickets and twittering birds is pure bliss. #bujo #bulletjournaladdicts #onebookjuly @mablemurple @songbirdstudio @the.majors.wife what are you doing now? 1mon
  •   mablemurple Enjoy a free afternoon of fun! 1mon
  •   mistyprochaska Yay, bullet journaling! Do you always use only one note oil, or are you just doing the July challenge? I am going the opposite way and trying to use multiple notebooks in a travelers notebook, but I think I am s single notebook girl in reality. 1mon
  •   gonzo5 !!!! I love the colors on your journal and the flags and the washi and the pen....️!!! 1mon
  •   happy._.mom Love the list! Maybe we can check off the Ocean Breeze box together! 1mon
  •   mistysmornings @mistyprochaska Because of the one book challenge I finally forced myself into bullet journaling in only one book. It has been the best peace of mind I've had in years. Love it! 1mon
  •   moryuh Where is my bullet? 1mon
  •   swainpaula I'm exhausted...what a list! All I know is - do it while you can, all things change-you can rest later, just ask Beb and I. What a gift! 1mon
  •   jsongstad Awesome list and cuuuute paper 3w

mistysmornings Thanks so much for the kind encouragement, texts and prayers! It means a lot to know my little IG community is so caring. I learned some good tips and found out way too many people I know suffer from migraines! Fortunately Zach is feeling so much better he playfully tried on this hat and posed for a snap. Zach is back! #gratitude 1mon
  •   vandgmoore Liv has suffered with them since 4th grade. Did anything specific work to break it? All these years and we still don't have a grip on hers. Good Luck! 1mon
  •   happy._.mom Love the hat, too cute! I hope you bought it! so glad he's better! 1mon
  •   jsongstad Oh no! I must catch up on the news...so sad he has migraines but this picture made me smile 1mon
  •   jsongstad P.S. I've heard from people with migraines that something in their diet can be a trigger...a possibility? And on the whole30 people have reported that their migraines are gone, so it may be one of those food groups that are eliminated? 1mon
  •   kaygullhav We like, we like! 1mon
  •   woollywanderer Pleased to know he is feeling better x 1mon
  •   gonzo5 awesome news!!! Love that smile!!! Zach is totally rockin that hat by the way. 1mon
  •   mistysmornings @gonzo5 @happy._.mom We debated buying it but he couldn't imagine where he'd wear it?! 1mon

mistysmornings Some parenting firsts are scary and learning how to deal with migraines is one of them. Thankfully calm husbands and wise friends help. It's so hard to see your child hurting and be unable to make it stop. I think I'll curl up beside him and rest awhile myself. #whatkidsteachus #surrendering 1mon
  •   momof3clays It's so hard to see your child not feeling well. Prayers for him that he's better tonight. :) 1mon
  •   espocarole So nice to see that familiar face. Hope he rests up and has a better day tomorrow! 1mon
  •   woollywanderer Prayers for the poor guy! I know how horrid they can be having suffered from hormonal migraines for over thirty years. Hope you manage to find a good medicine combo to alleviate the attacks x 1mon
  •   crnnoel Ooh I didn't see this! Poor kiddo. Peppermint oil to the temples and back of neck (mixed with a carrier oil like coconut) helps take the edge of mine 1mon
  •   jsongstad Poor, poor guy!!! Look at his precious face...I thought I had migraines once and the doctor said I didn't...ever since then, I've had a new respect for migraine-sufferers.xoxoxo 1mon
  •   gonzo5 So thankful prayers were answered and he woke up feeling better. It's truly so difficult to see our kiddos hurting. 1mon
  •   maramcewin So sorry to hear you are all going through this! So hard on you both 1mon
  •   bethelrising I missed this. So sorry he's dealing with this. Prayers. 1mon

mistysmornings The best thing I've gained from doing #onebookjuly is that everything I use for planning has become so easily portable. When the boys want to go to the field with my husband to play soccer on Saturday morning I happily go along, find a shady bench and play around with my pages and #washitape. #bliss #bujo #bulletjournaladdicts 2mon

  •   gonzo5 Yum!!! 2mon
  •   innercompassdesigns Yum. My daughter is having a birthday sleepover on saturday. A winter campout in a big tent in our garden. Sharing her american half and serving hotdogs and also introducing her friends to Smores. My mom brought out graham crackers (do not exist in australia) and ALDI had a USA sale which included campfire marshmallows and hershey chocolate. Awesome!!! 2mon
  •   mistysmornings @innercompassdesigns That is so neat to be able to spread the S'mores love around the globe! 2mon
  •   jsongstad Yummmy! Super enticing picture!! 2mon

mistysmornings I read page one of this book this morning at 6:00am and am finally back where I started to begin page two. So much day gets in the way when I'm in the mood for a delicious book binge. Even the cover of this book draws me in with its color, fabric texture and hand-lettering. Don't you just love the idea of having permission to read someone's diary? #whatimreadingnow #peacefulkitchen #booklove #thefoldedclock #itssimplytuesday #whatmistysreading 2mon
  •   blissfully2 2mon
  •   gonzo5 I hear ya Sister. I'll spend the day thinking about my book and as soon as the day sets I grab my book. It's the same excitement as sitting down with a good friend. #totalbooknerd #happy #seriouslywherecanihidetoread 2mon
  •   blondiesjournal I savor books like this. 2mon
  •   bobbie_lately I agree. So much day gets in the way 2mon
  •   jeri_taira How cool 2mon
  •   maramcewin Sounds like a great read. 2mon
  •   jsongstad Oooooh! Your 'trailer' of just the cover makes me want to read it!! Enjoy! (And leave off the scrumptious food and wine pics for a while, eh?) 2mon
  •   mistysmornings @jsongstad I'm so sorry for the food and wine photos. If it makes you feel better the one S'more I ate made me feel sick since I've been off sugar/gluten for quite a while now. It's a good reminder why I am staying away. (However #winedoesntcountassugar for me) 2mon
