summerThe kids and I just had the best day in my experience of motherhood so far. At least, definitely one of the top three. We didn't do anything particularly special and I won't bore you with the details but the stars aligned and the day was just... happy. Not "busy but happy" or "there were meltdowns but it was happy," nor "hard work but happy." Simply happy. All of us.

The day's sunshine is still glowing warm under my skin and a smile keeps flickering unbidden, gently, around the corners of my mouth. I was going to write a blog post tonight but instead I'm going to let myself bask in my happy day. I wish this for you too. Oh how I wish it. I hope you get to know this kind of full-heart and full-body happiness soon!
