It’s Sunday, my entire family is sleeping, and I am enjoying… no, wait… I am LOVING the peace and quiet of this home right now. I know it won’t last very long, but that’s ok, it’s been going on for a couple of hours now. I took the girls to the park this beautiful morning and they were both thoroughly worn out. Sophia went down without a fuss, but when Emma told me she was going to lay down too, I wanted to do a little dance in praise! She rarely naps. (I guess we need to go to the park more often!)
Last night I had a lovely girls’ night out with some friends. I have to admit, I have been pretty worn out lately, but I am so glad I went out with the girls. We had a wonderful time at a ‘Clay and Cabernet’ night at a local yoga studio… here’s my masterpiece…
I received Land of Nod’s catalog in the mail this weekend. Can I just say that I LOVE everything in it? Everything. The beds, the bedding, floor pillows, storage bins… I love it all. I also love their inspirational design and DIY blog… Honest to Nod. Cute, eh?

If you don’t know by now, I’m obsessed with blogs. I find new ones all of the time. I find a lot of ideas and inspiration in other people’s lives, and while some bloggers will sugar coat their blog life, there are others who don’t. I came across this blog this weekend through one of my endless online crafting searches, and then I realized that this blog is not just about crafting… Lil Blue Boo. It’s about a beautiful mom of a beautiful little girl, and it’s about her life and her fight against cancer. I won’t go into details, I will let you read about her history if you’re interested, but it was a very inspirational finding for me.
Once in a while I get one of those slaps in the face, where despite all the trials that we go through in life, we realize, hey… stop bitching. You have it pretty good.
It’s really as simple as that.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, my friends.
