The first peek outside.
Little boys who come in your bed at 5:00am to snuggle, then fall back asleep.
The smell of fresh ground beans.
Boiling pots of water.
Sunlight coming in.
Coffee. Alone. In silence. On the deck.
Not pictured: A phone call to my friend in NYC. We're planning our summer...she's coming home for 2 whole months! Other early morning calls and wake-me-up texts from my guy. He's far away, but I felt him close. Girls happily doing their chores. The Boy who (for the first time in 7 days) didn't throw up his breakfast. Birds singing. Windows open. Good hair, pink toenails, and yellow sandals.
I'm not going to lie. Re-entry after the weekend has been hard. Today was the first morning that I felt a groove. It's nice. I'm gonna stay in it all day...I just know.
