It was a good day. A belated May Day celebration, followed by popcorn and s'mores with dear friends in our backyard - a day that makes you say "we should do that more often." Yes. We should.
As I shift to working a bit more these coming months, I'm noticing how important it is to leave my work brain in the office when I emerge to be with my three boys, yet how challenging it is to do just that. It's so easy to just let my mind continue to race and fill up with things that cannot be done, and should not be done, when I'm with the boys. I found myself reading this post again. Good. I'll start by having more days like today.
We have a new pattern coming out this week, a big boy who is turning three, and to top it all off we're leaving tomorrow to spend a short week in the Outer Banks with my parents to celebrate Finn's birthday with the waves and the sand. (And yes, I'm bringing my sewing machine! Can't leave home without it!)
See you at the beach.
