Hey folks! Hope you are having a great week so far.
It’s that time of year again – back to school! I always get anxious/excited near the end of August. Anxious for yet another change in routine, but excited that I get to return to the job I love, work with my amazing colleagues, and see all of the kids that I have missed over the summer!!
Being a music teacher means that I have the privilege of educating the students in my school from first grade through fifth. Each year I say goodbye to my beloved students who will be entering middle school, and hello to a new group of 6 year olds who are excited about everything, yet need to be trained on how to properly function with teachers and peers.
They are the ones who truly make the quickest progress, because by mid October they seem to have the routine down! (most of them, that is…ha!)
We took these photos at Prospect Hill in Somerville. Isn’t the view of Boston gorgeous?!
It was nice and warm out, with a slight breeze. I recently shared the gif below over on Instagram. I’m curious if you think of the same thing my husband did…
He said it looked like I was farting! Hahah!! Love the way that man thinks – he’s always good for a laugh 🙂
This french fry pin from Forever 21 makes me so happy. It came in a set with the hamburger pin I wore recently, and there’s also a soda one. The set of three was only about $6! I hope they continue to make more enamel pins like these.
I also wanted to draw your attention to my hair. It’s naturally curly, but I almost always straighten it nowadays. When I don’t have time to dry it I usually end up braiding pigtails or throwing it in a ponytail. However, this time I went for a different braided look, and I love how it looks presentable (and cute) with little effort!
My thick hair can be a little challenging to braid when wet, but I didn’t care if it came out messy – so the total styling time ended up being about 5 minutes.
The only pain was that it took FOREVER to dry. After a full day in the braids, my hair was still wet when I took them out before bed. #curlyhairproblems!
