To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.

with summer now upon us
and this next chapter
right around the corner
it’s time to share-
we’re expecting.
the past year has been a roller coaster to be sure-
anticipation, immense joy, soul-crushing heartache, game-changing friendship
fear, hope, anxiety, small miracles, trust
and 
love
now, at 32 weeks
there is no hiding this bump of our soon-to-arrive baby
no, we haven’t shouted this pregnancy from the roof tops-
but
we are so very happy.
and grateful.
and excited.
also, yes, a little scared.
we are taking life one day at a time.
healing
and fostering confidence
we are looking forward
to august-
to remembering our boy
by celebrating his birthday
and to
welcoming
 his little sister
(yes! a girl!)

happy list

a collection
of the little things that have made my week

OH shnikes!
i’ve been meaning and meaning and meaning
to get to this place
but
JUNE!
is here!
and half gone!
life has been busy, busy, busy
which, i suppose
is good-
these last two months-
filled with holidays celebrating parenthood
and warming tide pools filled with splashing babies
has left my heart heavier than i expected…
but, of course
there are the very happy things
that come with early summer, too…

local, organic, summer berries
oh. my. yum.
and
the most happy thing of all-
the arrival of my people
those friends who really are family
whose summer migration north
makes every. little. thing.
feel
just

right.

Hallelujah.
