Wow. The summer has just begun and I feel it has already gotten away from me! Victoria's last day of school was Friday and Stevie left yesterday to return to South Bend. His summer is over. Two classes and football everyday. Victoria will follow him to South Bend in a few weeks to begin her Summer Scholar program at Notre Dame in Pre- law (she is envisioning "Legally Blonde" and I hope she won't be too disappointed!) and Alex starts grad school in August. I know there are many countries where the kids go to school all year 'round but I am just not used to it. I miss the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. No alarm clocks, just sweet songbirds serenading you awake in the early morning sunshine. Life is so crazy and competitive these days for our youngsters. Sigh.
I have been "missing in action" from my blog as of late. I am in the middle of quite a few exciting new projects and I plan to be sharing them with you real soon. They have taken me out of my comfort zone "big time" and that is a good thing! I did have a couple of articles published in the online edition of MORE magazine for woman at MORE.com. I was very excited! My last post made it to the front page of the BEAUTY section!
Meanwhile, HOW ABOUT THOSE HAWKS!!! We celebrated Victoria's 17th birthday in the city and the kids went to the game. Chicago is rocking! GO BLACKHAWKS!!!
