These days I’m…
*loving our new Friday night homemade pizza ritual
*savoring the delectable food (and great service) we experienced last week at the new Ava Gene’s, in SE Portland. I can’t wait to go back!
*delighting in my toddler’s desire to have tea-time each and every afternoon, after our tea playdate with the neighbors last week
*rediscovering a love for sitting on cold wet ground and listening to whoever is strumming their guitars at the park
*seeing the tiniest bits of spring popping up and flirting with me when I walk outside my front door. And bringing a bit of it inside to remind us what is coming so so soon
*reflecting on the wonderful documentery Birth Story I was lucky enough to see in the theatre last week. Feeling inspired by the central message — your body is not a lemon! Do yourselves a favor — go see it when it comes to your town.
*appreciating the lovely visitors whose presence has graced our home and our table the last couple of weeks, from out of town and around the block. People warm a house like no heater ever could.
*loving our new post-dinner music jamboree. Lyrics by Orlis, and everyone grab an instrument!
*cherishing these final months of just one kid – the relative ease; the relative tidiness; the relative predictability and familiarity; the intimacy; the duo (and trio) we are.
