You guys. My heart is still In our backyard when our little dude with his cute DIY crown celebrated turning three. His life makes my heart swell. I can hardly stand the sweetness of him. #seriously #trueelioorlando
And then he was three. Something about watching him in the backyard with our friends made me beam. He is just so delightful, sweet natured, and gentle. I could go on and on. But I will stop myself, as we moms do, and just stand in awe. Of him. Of the precious gift. Of the privilege to be one of his parents. Truth: My heart has never felt more vulnerable or exposed. Somedays, I wonder if I can bear another drop. Lately, I’ve been a little obsessed with capturing the details and moments of his journey, and our journey with him. Photos, emails to his gmail acct (yep, still doing this), journaling – anything to express the gratitude and the vulnerability that comes with having so much joy in our home. I don’t want it to go unlived, unexpressed, uncaptured. And so we try, everyday, to capture as many of the lights surrounding his sweet existence. Grateful. 
I’m thinking of one of my all time favorite Bob Dylan songs at the moment called Forever Young. Have you heard it (best song ever). Makes me think of True every single time, especially the lines:
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth 
And see the lights surrounding you
I take that back, the whole song is perfection:
May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

XXOOO

On midlife, becoming, emerging

On midlife, becoming, emerging

  The snow came this week, falling gently and creating a soft, white, wonder. I've been waking up to its bright white invitations to create beauty, to make a cup of tea, to read, to snuggle in.   I've been full of thoughts lately. So. Many. Thoughts. Much of...

On allowing younger versions of ourselves lead the way

On allowing younger versions of ourselves lead the way

(me, age 35) There's been a creative project that I've been resisting. It's one of those projects that looms large, my brain making up stories about it that loom even larger:  You don't have time. It's too massive of a project. Why bother.   For years now, the...
