these days

when i woke up yesterday morning, i was happy to find out it was in the sixties

about time!

Lily had breakfast, i had my coffee, i made the beds and organized a few things, we got dressed and we headed out on our bike

it was the best bike ride to the park in quite some time

i can honestly say that if it had not been cool out, we would have just stayed home where i would have continued to hibernate from the heat

as i sat on the grass and watched Lily interact with older kids, i thought about how these early park mornings are so limited

soon she will be one of those big kids going to school every day, all day

i looked at her with tears in my eyes and told her how much i love our days together

only for my tears to come rolling down my face when she replied “i love them too mommy”

time passing by too fast is obviously something i notice constantly but sometimes it just hits me more than others

we had a wonderful brisk morning at the park

happy saturday everyone

hope you are all enjoying your weekend
