waiting on...Wednesday {link-up #61}

While I'm Waiting...Waiting on...Wednesday link up
Welcome to the Waiting on...Wednesday link-up - a place where you can link up what you are waiting on, going through, making, anything - as long as it's family-friendly!  :)  After you link up, please make sure to read a few others - and don't forget to tell them you found them at Waiting on...Wednesday!  

First, I want to say a HUGE thank you to Jennifer at Chaos2Peace for co-hosting with me for the month of May!  It was such a blessing to have her helping me this past month!  Be sure and stop by Jennifer's blog and say "howdy!"

You can also find Jennifer on these social media outlets:
{Facebook}   {Instagram}   {Pinterest}   &   {Twitter}

It's no secret that May has, well, kicked my tail!  I know, I know, it's always crazy but it never fails to sneak up on me!  We are in the final week and I'm finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.  Summer breaks begins in 3 days (but who's counting?!). #memeME 

With summer just around the corner, I've done lots of thinking.  I'm really wanting an intentional summer where the kids and I just really focus on being together and having fun.  With that, I've decided to give the link-up a summer vacation too!  I'm still going to blog but by putting the link-up to the side, I can put more time and energy into pool dates, lemonade stands, and impromptu road trips!  I know you guys will all understand! Thank you, thank you, thank you for linking up with us each month and I look forward to starting the link-up again in September!

But, summer hasn't started just yet - let's have one more link-up before we go!

Just a few things to remember:
*All topics are welcome - as long as they are created or written by you and are family friendly!  Old posts - new posts... it's up to you!  Please link to your specific post URL and not to your blog home page.
*You can link up to two posts/blog.
*Please place a link back to this link-up in either your post or on your party page so that others can link up too.
*It's a party, try to visit at least 2 other posts and show them some love!  This is the fun part!  Be inspired, inspire someone else - don't just link and run!  Leave comments (and tell them you found them at Waiting on...Wednesday!), share and pin their posts - you know, show some love!
*Each week we'll choose a few posts to feature at the next link party.  We will also pin the featured posts to the While I'm Waiting - Waiting on...Wednesday link-up party FEATURES Pinterest board.
*If you would like to follow me, that would be awesome but it's not required.

While I'm Waiting... can be found on:

So, grab the graphic, link back to While I'm Waiting... and share away!  And then prepare to be inspired, encouraged, and entertained!

What am I waiting on?  Next week will be our first week of summer and I'm looking forward to all kinds of fun stuff!  We've got a little project in the works for Monday, a quick road trip on Tuesday, and on Wednesday I think we'll hit the library and get new library cards (and also check the first item off our bucket list!).  I hope you guys have a great summer!!!

Thanks for stopping by and linking up!  Have a blessed day!  
Gig 'em and God bless!

  1. I love having theme days for the summer! That's such a great idea. You know, I sure hope your kids appreciate just how wonderful you are!!!!

    1. You are too kind, Nina! We've never tried summer theme days but I LOVE a good theme so I'm hoping the kids will like it too! Thanks for linking up!

  2. Holly, enjoy your summer! You are so wise to take the extra time. It goes waaaaay faster than you can imagine. It seems like just the other day my kids were getting out for the summer and now I have great-grandchildren! I don't even know how that happened so fast! Thanks for hosting and summer blessings!
