Happy August!

It’s a sunny Sunday afternoon. My daughters are both napping as I sit in our newly painted office (by my husband who was up late and up early) watching my husband work in the front yard (the guy does NOT stop). Alexi Murdoch is playing in the background. Can I just have this moment in time pause because I don’t want it to pass by. Now, I’m still wearing my workout clothes from this morning’s walk and I haven’t worn makeup or done my hair in who knows how long. My clothes are actually damp from when Dylan made me get in her kid pool in our backyard ;)… but life is GOOD. It’s very imperfect and that to me is so perfect.

I could be meal prepping… actually I should be making these cookies! In fact, I think I’ll make them after I write this (if Parker doesn’t wake up!).
