am sleeping with a million pillows and the ceiling fan swirling.
am keeping the ice trays full for big gulps of water.
am loving maxi dresses. this dress is my fave. it is so comfy.
am just starting to dive into this book.
am planting flowers left and right (i am new at gardening)!
(my latest love is creeping purple phlox...)
am loving my upbeat cheerful doctor.
am stocking up on limes (on sale for 8 cents each)!
cilantro chicken soup is on the menu this week.
am attempting to cut back on baking sweets.
(we just polished off some pumpkin chocolate chip bread.)
am so grateful for motherhood, in all its forms.
am so thankful i am in the portion of life where motherhood defines me.
hope your weekend was happy. xo.
