zoom, zoom, zoom. time is flying by!

*It's been over a year since our past due date (December 17, 2009).
*Our baby girl turns ONE - December 30th, 2009.
*I've been a SAHM for a year~! (what?!)

It feels like the slowest / fastest year ever. I just can't believe it.

(Clock too cute not to share where to find it!)

the difference.

Having a baby makes me realize that I have to focus on the little tasks I can do - and let go of those little details I used to add to whatever I was doing... Like for instance, holiday cards. I used to make custom labels, used holiday stamps, sometimes add something special to the envelope. Um, I will say this - if please don't expect any of that. Sigh - but you will be getting a card. That's a BIG win in my back pocket these days. I'm just happy I was able to get through cards today while baby was sleeping... that's a big difference from the old me who would obsess on getting things done 1 way - the only way....

Inside with outside.

As I place another shell on a shelf, I can't help to wonder why we humans need to bring in the outside to remind us of the sweet moments. I've surrounded us in our home with shells, rocks, wooden bowls that feel like tree trunks, pictures -mostly taken outside. Is this to keep us grounded? If we lived outside, would we have pictures of us inside?

I will say this, holding nature in my palm always calms me.

what I'd make into law...

* All public restrooms (male and female) must include diaper changing station no matter what size of the establishment.
* All public places must truly have handicapped access-that includes "inside" the business too.
* All people should respect others and gosh darnit HOLD the door open for the person in need
* If a person needs a seat on public transportation and you're able, offer your seat (for instance handicapped, pregnant, iinjured, elderly, and people with child(ren).
* Every one should smile at each other.
