hello world. it's me again.


family portrait by blue lily photography

you have no idea how happy my world is right now.

let me tell you. (oh so many things to tell you. this will be a short smattering of thoughts.) i feel all me again, despite the random items in my fridge and explosion of a bedroom we're coping with. our new life here is coming together. it's terribly exciting. we have two rooms painted (am still admiring them) and our boxes are in (thanks to such awesome helpers). dan stole me away last week for a getaway in the mountains, so i'm still in the beginning stages of building our nest. found the shower curtain today. yay. and my kitchen cupboards are organized (thanks to you, whit) and my baking ingredients have been poured into oxo brand pop top containers (i'm madly crazy about them). we've been eating picnic style and benji's been playing with and around the packed and unpacked boxes. the chaos would be unnerving if i didn't feel so thrilled about the whole new house situation.

and, most importantly, today is our 10th anniversary (it was warm weathered and blue skied ten years ago too)! i am so lucky in love with dan and the little boy who reminds me so much of him (i could go on and on, as you know). and my computer is unpacked (oh how i've missed the clickety clicks of this old dusty keyboard) and my internet is running (such pride in self installation)! which means i can finally say hello again to you and thank you for the kind birthday comments. seriously; i read them on dan's droid and felt all rosy inside. and blue lily sent me some amazing pics from our photo shoot which i can finally download (to be honest, i haven't even had time to look at all of them yet. this was the first one i previewed and am smitten. will be viewing them for a little anniversary activity.) now i'm off to clear some space for a romantic picnic of take-out on our grainy wooden floors. very movie-esque. but in the movies, i'd have some decent make-up on, my hair appropriately done and a babysitter for the toddler. thank goodness dan loves me as i am, all crazy haired and fresh faced with bubble wrap curling in the corners and a toddler bouncing about. sometimes real life is so much better than the movies.

There you are! I was beginning to wonder if all those moving boxes went and ate you up. So happy you're finding joy in the chaos of moving. And Happy Anniversary! 10 years is a huge milestone. xo.
