Girls nite out with my mama

My mom and I are heading to the Brandi Carlile concert tonite – it’s outside, at one of the lovely zoo concerts here in Portland. John surprised us with tickets last week which made my heart melt. He’s always doing stuff like that. Today he kicked all of us out of the house to go shopping so that he could clean the house. I know, right?
My parents, who recently moved to Portland from FL (we are so lucky!), are living with us until they find a house. We’ve all settled into a summer routine of enjoying the amazing NW weather (it’s finally summer around here!), and doing fun things with True. It’s so hard to believe that last summer I was pregnant and this summer we have a 10 month old who is ON THE MOVE.
Omg. I can't believe how fast we made it to toy car already. Soooo cute!
True is saying a couple of words, mainly “mama” and “light” – those two things over and over and over. I love having my parents here and having them be a part of his routines and his everyday life – feeling really blessed.

First date night since true was born. Crazy love

John and I went for our first date night in 10 months (since babe was born) a couple of days ago – sooo fantastic. We had pasta, then out for dessert, then a drive, then a walk. We savored every moment. The truth is is that we are so busy over here with life and business and family and work. I’m starting to wonder how anyone has time to do anything, and we have just one kid! Yesterday I had an hour or so to sit on the back deck and flip through a HUGE stack of magazines that have been piled up for months. It felt like heaven, that little break from work, responsibilities, obligations.

Life feels full over here…trying to hang on and go for the ride while savoring all the moments so that I don’t miss the  sweetness of  it all.


Come join us for a life changing, business growing, joy jumping experience! It all starts 8/7/11. Don’t miss it! This will be the ONLY time I offer this popular ecourse this year...see you there!

A creative heart/life update

I went to Portland couple of weeks ago and had an experience that felt like a mixture of grief, awakening, and creative bursts all at once. Intense, illuminating, and ultimately really really GOOD. First, the grief. It's been so long since I've been back and I wasn't...
