Happy Heart

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly momentum can shift. For instance one day you can think your spouse is the dreamiest person to ever walk the planet and the next day you seriously question your sanity at the altar. Or how about when you wake up in the morning feeling like hot stuff and go to bed feeling bloated and the beginning of a break out on your chin...? Catch my drift?

Anyhow, maybe it is the onset of fall or perhaps just an afternoon in the fresh air, but I had a major momentum shift yesterday. After the Chargers lost and I had done at least 4 loads of laundry we hauled bikes, chalk and cocktails out to the sidewalk and spent the remaining hours of daylight in the front yard.

Trent finally gained full confidence on a two-wheeler and must have circled the cul-de-sac at least a hundred times.

Sassy britches and her slight snotty nose ruled the ruse as usual. Pacing the neighborhood in her snow boots and doing her best to boss everyone around.

Neighbors slowly congregated in the middle of the street, sipping beverages and talking about the days worth of football and the crispness in the air.  It. Was. Perfect.

A few things that have been missed on the ole' blog here due to my lack of posting....

Juliana started 2nd grade.

And soccer.

So did Trent.

Sammy girl started dance.

And the three middle cousins started pre-school (hip hip hooray!!!)

Happy heart indeed!! And happy Monday.


  1. Yay for the return of the blog :) The pictures are so cute. Love that Trent is on 2 wheels and all the cuteness of the first day of MDO. Love those kiddos xoxo
