a daily snapshot of inside meets outside.
gratitude for the simple little things, and appreciating the sweet spots of life.
:: 51/365 art.
a field trip to the local museum. the children loved the light table, and check out those basketball grapevines draped over the building. a few hours here followed by lunch with my mom. yes, this was a good day.
:: 52/365 growth.
some of our tomato seedlings are over six inches tall! which i suppose means they've graduated from the seedling stage. this was a cold, blowing-snow kind of day, but we are on the final countdown to spring, aren't we?
:: 53/365 rest.
my neck, shoulders and back have been seriously wrecked for a few weeks (co sleeping, night nursing, baby wearing), and i'm so grateful to my mom for watching the kids while i ran out for a last minute massage. after a decade as a massage therapist, i'm quite picky when it comes to body workers, but my first visit confirmed that i have definitely found the cmt of my dreams.
:: 54/365 play.
the children and i had the most amazing morning at this park, and then we picked up dada from the airport. five days is a long time without him, and he was greatly missed. (painting at the airport titled "to life" by jonas gerard).
:: 55/365 flora.
this fabric, on this chair? i like it.
i'm beyond excited to see what gifts spring bestows on us, up here on the divide. i recently found these shells of flowers from the tulip tree and i can't wait to see them in their full glory.
:: 56/365 contentment.
oh, the days when they're both happy, content and well-rested, those are good days. very good days.
:: 57/365 beginnings.
so much newness at six months. he's scooting across the floor, tyring so earnestly to get up on his knees and exploring new tastes and textures. every day seems to bring a new horizon to reach for. i see him processing all of these new beginnings in his sleep: in the day time he's sleeping more, in the night he's sleeping lighter, and nursing all night long.
and, those daffodils alongside my driveway, they are indeed the harbingers of spring.
i'd love to know ~ what simple little things are you grateful for today?
