yes, i know i'm a day late. but yesterday, i was busy. i was celebrating my motherhood.
and celebrating the little dude that made me a mother.
i love that. so much of what i do on a day-to-day basis is not earth-shattering or even remotely consequential. it's just the mundane, the ordinary, the messy, the frustrating, the over-and-over again reminding that we don't throw the blocks. it's not extravagant, it's not pretty, it's not full of celebrity. on the contrary! it's ordinary. it's just life. but it's in those ordinary, just life moments that memories are made, that little lives are shaped and molded into something so special, so extraordinary. a person. an extraordinary life. i am blessed to have such an opportunity and will continue to remind myself of that whenever i'm feeling the weight of those ordinary days. when the frustration comes, as it inevitably will, i will try to remember that.
key word being try i suppose.
the gap...and came back with some wonderful finds from the sale rack. thankful for that.
had a wonderful saturday morning at the farmer's market. i just love walking around, taking in all the colors, sights + sounds.
bought some local honey. it's supposed to help with allergies. and since i'm so seriously over dealing with the constantly runny nose, the itchy sore throat and the "they itch so bad i just want to tear them out of my head" eyes, that i'll try just about anything. this stuff is really strong though...so instead of taking the daily tablespoon all in one go, i think i'll do a little bit spread throughout the day. maybe it'll go down a bit easier that way.
also super excited about this. i've been wanting a clothes line for a while now...and i finally put it up this weekend. i'll only use it for sheets, towels and the like since i don't want our clothes to get faded in the intense summer sun but still...i'm excited to have line-dried linens in my house. i suppose it won't help my allergies much...but i'm willing to deal with the consequences of having fresh, outside-scented laundry in my midst.
i'm off to get some much-needed house-cleaning done before the dude wakes up.
