I love that George wants to be held most of the day. It does drive me a little crazy sometimes,
but knowing that it won't last much longer, I'm soaking it up.
I love that Eddie climbs into bed with me every morning
when it's still dark and falls right back to sleep for another two hours in my arms.
I am thankful and wistful as I watch Lute gain courage and confidence and a little independence as he explores the world around him.
I have it good.
And sometimes I take that for granted.
I feel like I've been tuning into the wrong things for the past little while.
Too much television watching, blogging, tweeting, phone checking, facebooking, pinning
and not enough reading, reflecting, playing, connecting, being.
I think my brain needs a reset to find the balance.
So after our little meal plan link up party tomorrow (are you ready??), I'm going to unplug for the week.
I'm going to play more tag, Chutes and Ladders and CandyLand.
I'm going to build forts and have picnics and make a lot of hot chocolate.
I'm going to read actual books and journal and spend time in prayer.
I'll probably bake a time or two, and hopefully fit in a few runs.
I'm going to snuggle and read stories and go to bed early.
I love this little space and all of the amazing people I have connected with,
so I am likely going to miss it a bit.
But I think sometimes I can be so connected, that I miss out on connecting with the
people right under my nose.
So here is to a week away and recharging... See you in seven!
