Today is

Plowing through a whole pack of doublemint gum while I finally attempt to put this entire space into book form. Pass the aromatherapy.

Deciding whether the clean laundry has been on the floor long enough to need another round through the wash.

A little boy who woke up at 4 am and then slept most of the day away on a pint-sized mattress on the floor next to me. Curled up next to his threadbare Wink, with bare legs splayed out. And poking from under his covers, the tiniest ninja-trutle covered bum. I look at his long messy hair, and pouted lips, and still see my baby.

And discovering that he knows his rights and lefts today?! I swear I didn't master those until I was at least the embarrassing age of 12. 

A vibrant, fearless little girl with enough personality for 10, who's cutting teeth like a boss and dancing through it.

Burgers grilled out on the back porch with IBC root beer and naked babies. 

And this outfit.  Which is part of a case study on not shaving your legs in July.

Love the skirt with the graphic tee - makes the look much less precious.

Love the maxi skirt, such a must have for summer and those days you forgot to shave your legs.

Love this outfit! What size is your skirt?

Stephanie said...

Oh my gosh, my 3.5 year old asked if something was "on the right side or left side" yesterday and I literally just stopped and stared at him like he was an alien. How do they LEARN these things?! Mind blown!

Sometimes I forget that I've shaved my legs and in the middle of begrudgingly reaching for the maxi skirt, it hits me... I have a whole new closet of options. It's kinda like finding your favorite lip balm in an old jacket pocket.

Alycia Crowley said...

I avoid shaving my legs at all costs, and now that I am eight months pregnant, I can't even see them, so who cares! haha Love it :)

Amie Willoughby said...

So much sweetness & life-ness! hahaha, love it!

Gracious Store said...

lucinda said...

how exciting! i can't imagine what kind of work that must be to get everything onto paper, but to be able to thumb through pages of all the stories and memories captured here will definitely be worth the effort. what publishing site did you end up going with?

Kendra said...

No one commented on the small snippet the mentions you're writing a book?! In reference to your blog! I loved Natalie's book, and I am excited to see what yours will entail.
