"Look mama! I found a heart rock!" #lovethiskid #trueelioorlando

His bowl cut kills me, in all the best ways. His gentle presence feels like the best gift I’ve ever been given. “Mama, a heart rock! A heart rock!” Oh man, he’s a keeper.

#oregoncoast has my heart. Beautiful here!
He and John have a sweet relationship. I love watching Papa John teach and show him everything. An intuitive/medium told me a little over a year ago that True and John had travelled many times together, that True has a strong connection to John’s side of the family. She said he was quite persistent in joining him for this lifetime, that it would be their best. I think of that often. They do seem to have travelled together before. Really sweet. Really easy. 

Found him just like this yesterday afternoon after grabbing a new book from out #freelittlelibrary in the front yard. This kid is so my son. Being his mama has been a privilege of a lifetime.  #alonetime #sunseeker

So this happened today. Life with a toddler is proving to take me back. All the way back. When I asked him what we should call him, he paused for a moment and then declared "Kenny the fish." And so it is, and begins.
It's a cloudy day over here but our little superhero is all flight and imagination. #trueelioorlando

Live this silly boy. #trueelioorlando

Love it when John sends me photos like these. Hello life!

Something has happened in the last week. The shift from quiet to wild is in progress! That, and hello big boy!

Whenever I ask him to “pose for a picture”, this is what he does. Hands on his tummy, looking adorable. Toddlers are like the sweetest, cutest, funniest little creatures. Love. 

View from our yard! Do you see the artichokes growing?Whoa. On our way to the market. Happy Saturday everyone!

It’s not always easy or simple or fun, but it’s a privilege to be his mom. I adore him, our sweet little family, and all the adventures we’re on. There is something about being a mom that is a continuous practice in keeping my heart open and vulnerable. Sometimes I think my heart is going to explode with all the sweetness and it’s a practice to keep it there, on the edge of explosion vs retreating back. I hope it never ends.

How quitting social media is changing everything for me

Who am I without constant feedback about who I am via social media comments and likes? Who am I if I'm not creating nearly constant content for social media consumption? What's left when all the noise is silenced and social media chatter and scrolling and comments are...
