There is something to say about these early birds, getting up before the kids at 5:30am. The sun kissing the tips of the Willow out front. The creeks of the floor, the tippy taps of puppy following you around as coffee is brewing the background. It doesn't just have to live in a magazine or tv commercial. We can live this life for real.
We are getting ready to go away this long weekend, and it is a nice morning. The truck is packed, the tweet and blog will be done. The kids are sleeping. The husband is puttering. Amanda is happy.
What a peaceful, lovely life I lead.
I feel blessed today.
