What I'm loving right now

I know this is so random, but I think it captures the essence of my nesting right now. I feel like I'm digging out these little comfort holes for myself. Some of them I'm creating, by surround myself with things I love and some of them are capturing moments I love and letting them linger.

Simple and order. This is exactly what I feel like I need in order to prepare myself for being outnumbered by kids in two months.

Fake sleeping. A, who is going to be the big, BIG sister, pretends to sleep whenever Daddy is driving so that he can carry her into the house. Did I mention how much I love, her love for her Daddy.

Digging for worms. This has been A's sole mission for the last week or so. She's even recruited her brother to help her overturn every brick and rock between here and Mimi's house.

Bluebonnets in the big city. Who would have thought that I'd be treated with such untamed beauty in the fourth largest city!

Old and homey. I finally displayed my collection of estate sale pot holders. Our neighborhood is turning over and I've been to a few estate sales in the last 4 years. Every time I walk in the door of one of my experienced neighbors, my heart flutters with excitement and sadness. I love to find all of these wonderful treasures that are left behind like junk, but at one time were held dear by someone. These are a few of my favorite.

Wrestling. The kids are playing outside from the moment they wake up until it's time to come in for dinner. They love each other so much, my heart giggles. Yes they fight and cry too, but moments like these prove to be more lasting and powerful than the tears.
