Summer Break

*News from my Vienna trip is coming very, very soon, I promise! In the meantime, I've been spending fun and giggly time with my girlies during the past week. Their preschool has summer break this month, and we've been celebrating by taking carousel rides in glittery, retro convertibles,

sharing a chocolate mint ice cream sundae at the Italian gelato cafe

taking first pony rides

and making lots and lots of new artwork. 

My mother is flying in today from the US, so we have also been busy getting prepared for her visit, cleaning and shopping like wild women. 

At the same time, I've been organizing my Vienna photos and notes, scheduling the two next stops on my 12 month journey, putting the finishing touches on my e-course, spreading the word, and feeling very excited about it all. 

What have you been up to? Are you having a summer break yourself? Did you go on vacation this year? Are you sad about summer slowly coming to an end, or are you looking forward to fall?

I always love to hear from you and more very soon :)
