Woohoo, summer has officially arrived and NO MORE SCHOOL! I’m so excited that we can have lazier mornings and a less hectic schedule. What’s the first thing I did? Sign the kids up for swim lessons next week (grumble, silly me). At least they don’t start till midmorning so we can still sleep in. Here at Small Victories Sunday Linkup, the summer celebration continues. Our bloggers offer their best posts to inspire you to read, eat, live, create and blog well! Bring us your best summer fun, food, books, home, blog and travel ideas. Stay tuned for our Small Victories Sunday Linkup so you can grab all these great ideas and pin them to use later.
My Small Victories
On the blog front, the guest post from The Hallway Initiative about What Parents Need to Know About Type 1 Diabetes created quite a stir this week. So many comments came in both thanking Julie for sharing her experience to held educate other parents about these less commonly known symptoms.
I feel strongly about raising awareness of these autoimmune diseases, like Type 1 diabetes and the Rheumatoid Arthritis I have, to inspire hope and empathy for current patients and for others to recognize the symptoms of these less common diseases before it becomes a full blown attack.
If you missed yesterday’s announcement, I am also a co-host now for the Pretty Pintastic Party that runs from Friday through Tuesday morning. Be sure to add your best pin links, every post gets pinned! You know how much I love the increased traffic my blog has seen from Pinterest, so I’m thrilled to be part of this linkup and hope you join us there too!
On the home front, I’ve been having fun with end of year parties for my 2 younger sons. I also managed on pulling weeds for a few hours and NOT needing pain medicine the next day. I’m shocked! Why is it that pulling weeds makes muscles ache that you didn’t know you have? I’ve had a pretty productive week, I feel like I was scrambling to get things done before kids are off school.
What are your small victories? Don’t be shy! Share your small victories, supporting and empowering each other is what I’m all about! Negativity and judgment is not welcome here!
