Found myself last in the bathroom, right as intermission ended during Hamilton.
One of those days.
You can hear us both saying “CHEEEEESE” through our mom smiles. 🧀🧀🧀
Flashback to a sweet moment before getting out of the tub and braving an epic meltdown where my cranky, slippery toddler didn’t want to be wet, but didn’t want the towel to dry her off, wanted to wear her robe with the belt ends touching and the robe closed but OH FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS HOLY DO NOT TIE THE BELT. #reasonsmykidiscrying
Not a fan of these temperatures, but the frozen river is sure a sight to see!
These are the mornings that I want so badly to be in two places at once. My heart is pulled in two directions; with my feverish, lethargic daughter at home with my husband, and with my team at work on an exciting and important day.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself. (I am large, I contain multitudes.) 👆This stanza of Whitman’s Song of Myself is more and more relatable with each passing day.
Birdie is full of personality (and now also has ears with tubes). Byeee ear infections!
Look at you Monday, knowing how to make an entrance.
Dinner dates on a Monday evening. Extra cheese on the small order.
Bought a house. Made family time a priority. Spent 365 days getting to know my daughter. Celebrated a decade of marriage. Reconnected with myself and began to grow and learn to thrive in our new normal. 2018, you were great to us.
This photo isn’t anything special, but it makes me smile so hard.
😎 the coolest.
Birdie and I were having a great time. The world’s most patient cat was not.
My heart in a Japanese restaurant.
One of the best parts of life is watching the people you love grow up and find someone to love. What’s even better? When they are about to have a daughter, giving Birdie a cousin to grow up with so that she gets to know that joy, too. Mike and Lisa, we are so excited for baby Eva’s arrival ♥️
New neighbors. 🦌🦌 Is that you, Rudolph??
What a difference a year makes. 🎄
We met the big guy while dropping off our gifts for the @givebesa adopt-a-senior drive. Naturally, Birdie was her usual skeptic self.
