Taking Stock

-- Celebrating our four year wedding anniversary at our favorite local breakfast place, Egg Harbor. --

Making: Memories with my family.
Cooking: Delicious, giant bowls of fresh green, colorful salads.
Drinking: Fresh homemade smoothies and juices.
Reading: Nothing at the moment. It's been an embarrassing long time since I have even picked up a book.
Wanting: More time for myself, to create, learn and discover.
Looking: Into turning my 52 project from 2013 into a tangible book I can actually hold and cherish.
Playing: With Chloe and the children I nanny for everyday.
Wasting: Nothing.
Sewing: Nothing.
Wishing: For springtime.
Enjoying: Yogurt topped with fresh, ripe blueberries, blackberries and touch of granola sprinkled on top.
Waiting: For those first early signs that come with the changing of a season.
Liking: Coconut coffee creamer.
Wondering: How to simplify our life.
Loving: My days off from work, when it's just me and Chloe and we have an entire day to enjoy to ourselves.
Hoping: That I can get back into my exercise routine as spring quickly approaches.
Marveling: At how quickly time seems to go by. Mike and just celebrated our four year wedding anniversary, and in June Chloe will be three years old!
Needing: More patience with Chloe, and much more sleep during the week.
Smelling: Lingerings of my favorite perfume on my jacket and scarf.
Wearing: Dark winter inspired clothing, blacks, browns, deep blues and greens.
Following: Along with the 52 project, hosted by Jodi.
Noticing: How badly I need to get my hair cut and dyed.
Knowing: That our life is continuously changing and evolving over time.
Thinking: About more then I could ever share. 
Feeling: Overwhelmed and anxious but also a deep sense of hope that " this too shall pass ".
Bookmarking: A poem about Shrinking woman by Lily Myers.
Opening: Mail.
Giggling: Over all the funny things my two year old says and does.

Joining in with Pip and Kate!


  1. What a lovely family you are! But why does Chloe look like she's about 4 in that first picture!? What a big girl, and such a cutie! I'll never get over her hair...it's the best!

    Ages 2/3 were the hardest for me with Avery. She never slept, and I felt like I never had enough patience. Age 5 has been amazing...and yet bittersweet at the same time because it means Avery is getting so old. But it's so much fun!

  2. Thanks for sharing this wonderful post, It is awesome.
