The next few days are shaping up to be quite "full" around here, which is always an important time for me to remember to stay present and grounded in the here and now. And so...
Right now, I am....
eating :: peanut butter and toast;
feeling :: quite tickled to "know" so many people who appreciate the fabulous-ness of peanut butter + bread + vintage linens the same way I do;
listening :: to the beautiful sound of Gregory Alan Isakov, whose music I just can't stop playing after seeing him open for Brandi Carlile last week;
watching :: the very last bits of white wintry snow be replaced by the first signs of a white flowery spring;
loving :: watching Harper discover the power of his reach, the sight of his toes, and the effect of his giggle;
plotting :: how I'm going to peacefully enter and most importantly - exit - the art store today with four children without buying anything except the mat I need cut (while simultaneously concealing from the birthday boy the print for which I need a mat) - hmmnn...;
thinking :: about six years ago tomorrow, when this magical, sweet, and loving little boy gently entered and forever changed our lives and hearts;
hoping :: I can get all the birthday party crafting/cooking/cleaning done in time for tonight's party.....and if not, that I can peacefully let it go in enough time to enjoy;
and, wishing :: you a lovely Wednesday!
