It's moments like these that I will remember into my 80s. I am a very lucky soul.
I found them like this, making Valentines, and my heart stopped for a second at their sweetness. All day long they are sweet. All day long they steal my heart. And all day long they remind me just how insanely lucky my little soul got in this lifetime.

After I made the first one for True, I couldn’t help make another one for True and John. I’m onto something. I can feel it in my spirit. I could make sweet little love note images all day long with our families in mind. And so I think I will indulge that little creative urge, and trust in the delight of it all. 

While snuggling after a nap…..  True: What do I smell? Me: Hmmm, might be the sugar cookie I just ate. True: Did you eat allllllllllll of the sugar cookies? Me: No, but what if I HAD eaten them all. Would that have been ok? True: Yeah! Me: Really? True: B
The other day, we were snuggling after a nap and it went down like this:
True: What do I smell?
Me: Hmmm, might be the sugar cookie I just ate.
True: Did you eat allllllllllll of the sugar cookies?
Me: No, but what if I HAD eaten them all. Would that have been ok?
True: Yeah!
Me: Really?
True: Because I’m in loooovvveeee
Me: You are? With who?
True: YOU, silly!
Heart officially melted.

They're on an adventure up to the neighborhood store. #wow #snowday #rare #fun
And there they are being sweet and melting my heart AGAIN. Did you hear? It snowed in Portland. Big time. And it was the stuff of magic and memories. 
In other news, big things are happening around here. The other day John said he noticed that I seemed really chill considering we’re in the midst of putting our house up for sale, getting ready to close and move into another house, launching an e-course, and working on art deadlines alivelines. It’s true. I think I must be getting older, because I’m just in total trust these days. Life is moving right along, and I’m taking it all in, one sweet moment at a time, and trusting the journey completely. It feels big. Whole. Just right. 

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!
