today was quiet. slept in with the baby. drank coffee, ate toast. played puzzles with S. Got 2 hours of time with the little man while J and S ran errands, we napped, nursed, snuggled. had an awesome cup of chai. roasted sweet potatoes, parsnips, carrots, asparagus and onion to eat with a roasted chicken. baked chocolate chip biscuits for dessert. watched the snow fall. caught a cooking show. J finished the downstairs carpeting. there is such sweetness to be had it the simple days. i had planned to go out and run errands, and to go to a diapering event but vetoed it. it was so nice to stay in and have that be the only plans for the day. i can't remember the last time i made a nice saturday dinner. and i am even planning a nice dinner for tomorrow. the weeks can be so hard when i am stuck inside the house with the kids and we are irritating each other. but then when we choose to stay in and just enjoy it and are present, it's so so wonderful.

Oh! Hello!

Hello blog that I completely forgot about! You are still lovely and I hope to give you the much needed attention you deserve. I could probably hack out a post right now with the baby passed out in my lap and S watching a movie but what to say?

A lot has changed in the year since I've been here.
A brand new baby boy came into our world in August 2011. My daughter turned 4. 4!!! DH and I have been together for 8 years.
My parents moved out of state. For the first time ever in my life they aren't a quick car ride away.
I've showed myself I'm stronger and braver and smarter and more able than I ever gave myself credit for.

Maybe that much hasn't changed? shrug. My thoughts aren't that organized right now. I hope to come back.
