Summer Luck

Yes, I know it’s been a long time since I have posted. But I have two reasons for this post; 1.) My dad told me a couple weeks ago that I need to start blogging again. 2.) I have somewhat more time to blog these days.

Anyways, as I sit here on  this beautiful summer evening I can’t help but smile when I think of how lucky I am. Whenever Spring semester rolls around I always find myself extremely stressed out when thinking, “What am I going to do this summer?” I laugh when I think about how stressed I was a few months ago. I should have known that somehow my summer has a record of always turning out to be the best.

This summer I made the decision not to stay in Kalamazoo but rather come home to save my money from babysitting. It just made sense. The number of families that I babysit for back home outweighs the three families in Kalamazoo. I have been on a mission to make as much money as possible. In just 20 days I will be in Prague, Czech Republic, taking a few classes and I CAN’T WAIT! 

Obviously that is on the very top of my summer list. I’m also so lucky that I will be extending my trip to travel around Europe!

Some other events that have made my summer even more wonderful.

A couple weeks ago, I was able to go the United Center to watch game 7 of the Chicago Blackhawks and the Detroit Red Wings. Dad, Andrea, Nick and I were able to be at a great game with the Hawks finishing on top.




Next, I’ve been dying to see Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line in concert. But the lawn seat tickets are selling for $120… and with saving for Europe I wasn’t going to be able to pull that off. Well, with my summer luck, I’ll be seeing the concert next Saturday…for free! Becca, Jessie and I were able to get tickets for free! Told you I had some great summer luck!

Almost forgot to mention–  I will be going back to Colorado Springs in 11 days. This is some serious luck. The family that I nanny for asked me to join them on their trip. The dates of the vacation are June 20th to the 27th. I leave the 28th for Europe! I’m lucky enough to be able to go with them.

Now maybe with the way my summer is going… the Blackhawks will win the Stanley Cup!

Stay tuned for more blogs. I will try my very best to post more often!


Can’t forget a picture of my sweet puppy! Nala girl after a visit to the dog park…


I’m very blessed with the good life.
