This past weekend we had family portraits. This upcoming weekend we go back to see them. Its gonna cost us a fortune to get any of those photos into our hands. When the photographer left the room for a minute Elie snapped this pic with his phone. Based on the price list, this may be the only pic we ever get of that day….
This is a shirt I save for days I know I’m gonna need an extra boost of positivity. I gave been feeling stressed about work. I don’t know if it’s the work, or me, or some of the stuff that goes with working a high stress job, but in the six years I’ve worked there I’ve never felt this on-edge. And I gotta make it stop. All weekend I was feeling tense with the anxiety of monday morning so when I was digging through my closet and saw this top I thought “that’s it- it couldn’t hurt!”
I dressed and went to wake up Molly. She rolled over, looked at me and said “mommy, I love your happy face.” I replied, “I love yours too.”
Heading to the crayon factory with the kids while Color Splash invades our home. The Devine Miss Molly sits in the back seat with her itouch playing spin art- obviously, the glitter brush is her favorite.
(yes- my three year old has an itouch. Don’t judge!!!! Elie bought me the itouch on Sunshine and Daisy’s expected due date- he’s a sweety. A couple months later my boss got me the iphone. My Sentimental Itouch sat untouched for months till I realized Molly was asking for my phone to play games. So I downloaded apps for her to the itouch. It’s almost like a gift from her sisters. So there. 🙂 )
Color Splash on HGTV is coming tomorrow to give us a living toom makeover. I had to find a new spot for my Sunshine and Daisy print. Nowhere felt quite special enough until I thought of this spot. This feels perfect.
The first night it was there, as the mobile music played and I nursed their little sister to sleep, I felt like all my babies were together with me in that little room. (molly is a big girl! Not a baby!) it was one of the most emotional moments I’ve had in a long while, and it felt good to cry for them. I miss them.
