If we were having coffee this morning I’d tell you that I was a complete mess last week. That life is absolutely crazy right now and I typically wake up exhausted just knowing what has to get done on a particular day. And last week, was just a bad week for me. I’m not sure I even recognized myself but then I found out that my sister-in-law was having my sweet baby niece and I realized that the chaos is part of life and I can either cry about it and be a complete wreck or I can embrace it.
I’d tell you that my new baby niece is absolutely perfect. She has 10 fingers and 10 toes and the most pinchable cheeks in the world. I know we’re going to have the best adventures together because I’m her aunt and that means we can do what we want. I can’t wait to watch her grow and see the interaction between her and my minions. And she still has that new baby smell. I love that new baby smell.
I’d tell you that I finally made it to my happy place, the place that soothes my soul, makes me feel refreshed, and instantly happy. I laid in the sun, listened to the waves crash against the shore, and to the sound of my kids laughing. As my man Zac Brown says, “I put my toes in the water, ass in the sand, not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand, life is good today, life is good today” 🎶
If we were having coffee this morning, I’d tell you that I finally took a leap of faith and did something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time now. I’m taking my blog and moving it from its home here to its own little website. In the next week, I’ll be working hard on making this new website my blog’s new home and I hope you’ll follow me over there. But until next Monday, you can still find me writing here. It’s a big step for me, something I’ve been dreaming of doing for years now and I’m beyond excited!
If we were having coffee this morning I’d give you a huge hug because I wouldn’t want you to leave. I wouldn’t want this coffee date to end. We’d talk for hours about everything from our favorite TV shows, to the songs we love, to how crazy and scary our world is. We’d laugh until the coffee shop was closing and we’d have to go home. And then I’d pose the question, “Wine?” To which you would respond “My house or yours?”
