it does my heart good




it's the PM and i'm brainstorming ways to run the kids into bed as to get on with movie night with D. my pjs are a little less stylin because i had to throw my cute tee into the wash post hamburger grease dinner splatter, but D has no idea i coordinate loungewear so he won't notice. notebook is on the couch for mid-movie writing i hope he won't notice either ;)

today i spent a fantastic day scrapbooking with some great girls in a banquet room of a local hotel. there is nothing like cutting paper and glueing them in patterns around your favorite summer memories while drinking non-stop caffeine handily stocked up at a linen covered table nearby. lovely, lovely, lovely.

the scrapbooking. i hadn't realized how much i have missed for the last few months -- it's like visual affirmation of good-enough motherhood seeing how things have played out and the memories we have made and the everyday (some easier than others) coming together in a series of beautiful moments i feel lucky to have caught on film. because i am so visual, it's like a picture version of my much loved gratitude journal. remind me to fill up on it a little sooner next time.
