I have this jar that I made right before Sia Mae was born. It’s full of tiny love notes for whosoever chooses to shake one out. I’d remembered with Kai how the sleepless nights can make everything seem out of place and confusing. The notes were friendly reminders to (hopefully) help bring it all back. It’s been a year and I still have half the jar left. This one chose me today:
Give permission to yourself to be who you are as you are in the moment. Even if it feel like being lost.. or angry.. or undone.. Be there until you are finished. You will move on.
Thanks, pretty jar with crumpled notes!
I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since my last Kai and Sia post. I think that week just melted away with catching up on sleep. My best friend/sister came in town last weekend and we did everything except sleep. We wanted to squeeze in every second we could with each other. No worries, though, here’s a double dose of these two cuties!
He asked me to not move because he likes laying on me.
Sia was napping and we couldn’t go to the beack, so we made sand castles out of mud. Notice the flag and door..
She tries to put everything over her head.

He’s the lean, mean, green eating machine:)
Her first time at the beach, all she could do was stand in awe.
Lately, I’ve been obsessing over kaftans, mumus, if you will. Anything oversized, comfortable but still cute, I’m a sucker for!! Perfect for spring too, when you still want some coverage but need the airyness.

As most of you know, there have been a lot of HUGE changes in my life the last couple weeks. I’ve felt a lot of strange emotions that I am still processing. One thing that I continute to feel no matter what, though, is gratitude. I am safe. I am okay, and even really, really good. I am such a lucky girl. I always try to focus on what I do have, not what I do not. I dream, I have goals, but I don’t let them get in the way of the here and now. Take a second to sit quietly and be thankful today. It feels good:)

I love her little snaggle tooth grin, and she is so easy to smile.
He went to Mardi Gras this week. He’s been every year since he was born.
