Weekend Wanderings

There are loads and loads of laundry to be washed, bathrooms that really could use a good cleaning, beds that need to be made and a glorious pile of dress up clothes that threatens to swallow us all if not sorted through soon.  There is dinner to be thought of and made, kitchen floor in need of mopping, toys scattered hither and yon and art supplies from the ceiling to the basement.

And yet...

Weekends are for making babies laugh, letting kids fingerpaint, cheering on Mario Kart championships, braiding hair, singing songs, reading poems, watching the snow melt, eating cookies, writing letters, embroidery, holding close, slowing down, laying in a sunspot,  watching Spring unfurl, visiting Grandma and gathering up the moments in a big bouquet of happiness.  You know, the important things.

Its easy for me to be distracted by the work of life and forget to embrace the messy chaos of every day miracles.  Today I'm focusing on what matters.


Big news!  I have a plan in mind for my next review/giveaway.  I am working with a work-at-home mama to 4 lovely children to bring this next giveaway to you.  Be prepared to have fun!  Also if you have any ideas for a giveaway that you'd like to see in the future, please comment or send me an email.  I always love hearing from you!

  1. We all need these days to remember that being a mama is FUN. Chores will always be there, but babies won't be. Hope you are enjoying an equally relaxing night!
