I kinda love it when he walks in the door and tells me how good it smells. 
One of my favourite things to do on my days off is make something tasty for Chris when he comes home for lunch. I kinda love it when he walks in the door and tells me how good it smells. So I guess what I'm saying is you should make this if you're looking to impress your guy/girl. Lotsa olive oil, lotsa garlic, crushed red pepper, white wine, lemon juice, sautéed shrimp, parsley, linguine - so easy, but so freaking good.

Thirty

Tomorrow I turn 30 and that feels oddly strange to type out. It's the first birthday that I somewhat have conflicted feelings over.
We no longer feel the need to care about what people think of us, and have learned that negativity isn't something we want to concern ourselves with. 
I've heard many say this is a major milestone for us women. It's when we really start to feel comfortable in our own skin and confident about who we are. We no longer feel the need to care about what people think of us, and have learned that negativity isn't something we want to concern ourselves with. At thirty we finally feel like all of the soul searching we did in our twenties has allowed us to understand who we really are.

Well thirty, I'm as ready as I'll ever be.

Talking Back

But I just love the fact that I can say, "Penny should we have breakfast?",  and she'll say, "Yahp!"
I just have to say this age is my absolute favorite. After over one year of talking and cooing at this little baby she finally talks back to me! We are just hanging out today not really doing much of anything because it's too cold to go outside. But I just love the fact that I can say, "Penny should we have breakfast?",  and she'll say "Yahp!" Or I'll say, "Should we do some laundry??" "Yahp!", "Should we change your diaper?" "Yahp!", "Can you please stop shaking all the spices all over the floor!?" "Yahp!"

Creative Housemates

I love that you flit around the house singing, making tea and coffee, and that you sit by this window creating beautiful art.
It was too hot to work in the studio today, so I came inside and set up shop in the living room. I made a nice little nest on the floor, between the coffee table and the lounge. This was my view - from one freelance desk to another. Alicia Mozqueira, you make such beautiful work. I love that you flit around the house singing, making tea and coffee, and that you sit by this window creating beautiful art. If you haven't checked out Alicia's work yet, please do. Gah. What talent! It's a good feeling to be in the company of joy-filled, creative housemates.

Becoming Her

I sat and watched you eat a quick snack before your father daughter dance. I watched as the soft afternoon light streamed in and kissed your maturing features. Wearing a dress which used to be too long but has suddenly crept up to just above your knee. I watched and I realized you are changing so much right before my eyes.
Some days I feel as though I'm running out of time and I feel a sense of urgency to become that better mom that I had planned to become years ago. The one with more patience and less demands.
Some days I feel as though I'm running out of time and I feel a sense of urgency to become that better mom that I had planned to become years ago. The one with more patience and less demands. The one who is more present and always available to answer all the questions inquiring minds want to know. The one who would drop everything in a heartbeat to sit and do a creative project with you just because you asked.

Somehow she hasn't surfaced yet. It's still just me. Less than perfect, tired and stretched too thin, but I promise I will keep trying. Tomorrow is another day, and I hope to become her a little more.
