"If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish.... You buy yourself at least 3 hours floating alone on your paddleboard in the middle of the lake AND free dinner." - an ancient proverb

Today's Rainbow girls gig....
Get paid to paint Cornhole boards and eat tacos at a family reunion and we have never felt more seen or appreciated🌈
This is a thing y'all.
We are the Rainbow Girls🌈

We're coming into the sweet spot of childhood where my 'constant scan for the boy's whereabouts and danger and how closely they are related' gaze is softening and I find myself happily trailing behind them talking to seals and seagulls and taking pictures of mussels.
It happens slow and fast all at the same time.
One minute you're on Amazon looking up leashes for your twin toddlers and the next you're yelling "meet you at the boat launch".
It's a journey....but I'm enjoying the paddle thoroughly ❤️

The island fair has come and gone and has left me breathless with the amount of joy it has brought me...
My favorite memory will be how Finnegan marched around in his little striped shorts announcing with pride to perfect strangers that his mom has won 'a big puffed up ribbon'.
My astute friend @erin_m_fox alerted me to the fact that it looks like a marigold... And now I can't unsee it! How serendipitous!
Buckle up your seatbelts for what @boundlesslovelab and I are plotting for next year.... You are not going to want to miss it. Paper chain countdown starts today. 365 and counting.....
