Hello New Day.
Hello New Week.
Hello New Adventure.
What a beautiful Monday morning! The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and its finally feeling like spring out there! Like most weekends this past weekend passed by in a sunny blur! We spent so much time outside. I have come to the conclusion that as long as it is a nice day out my daughter will be outside. Which means everything else, the house cleaning, my work, will have to wait. And thats all ok. I love seeing her face when she plays outside, pure joy.
You know what else really makes me happy? No more snowsuits! No more trying to chase my toddler around to layer her up to go outside to get the boys from school. Seriously, this makes me so happy. And will save so much time! We normally have to get ready to go out about 10-15 minutes before we have to leave, now will be 5 minutes, or just walking straight out the door! How exciting is that? My only challenge will be either getting sunscreen on my toddler, or convincing her to keep her hat on! I will take that challenge any day over a snowsuit!
This week I have no real goals. Sorry. This is the first nice week of the year, and I just want to soak in every minute of it. Things will get done, eventually. This week I just want to be in the moment enjoying it with my kids. And besides if my toddler gets her way, I won’t be in the house much any way this week.
Do you ever just feel like you need sunshine and warmth on your skin? I do. Maybe it has to do with growing up in Kenya, but the sunshine and warm weather makes me so happy. It is almost like it awakens a part of me that hides away from the world during the cold winter months. I thrive in the sunshine and warmth. I miss Kenya and its endless sunshine and warmth. I can’t wait for long summer days, camp fires, beautiful sunsets, and loads of time outside with my kids.
I hope you all have a wonderful week filled with sunshine and happiness!
