In this moment:: weekend four (better late than never)

In this moment::

I am:: grateful for every giggle I can get out of my daughter. Cutting four top teeth at once brings little in the way of smiles, but for some reason, the camera always shows her shining.

I am:: finally finished obsessing over more than 2,000 pages of smut which I loved getting lost in, and yet, am too embarrassed to name here. Whew.

I am:: planning projects, both the kind that are tangible, and the kind that are anything but.

I am:: eating leftovers from last night's dinner with friends and marveling over how much easier it gets to feed nine children at once, as they get older and more, well, self sufficient.

I am:: thrilled for the onset of summer schedules, just two days from now. There will be sailing school and naps to guide our days, but little else to dance into our rhythm.

which is lovely, because
I am:: working toward transforming my view of time, aware now that each moment brings its own dawn, its own joy, its own space to simply be.

I love this idea of In the moment I am:
and remember those teething times, and try not to worry about those last molars that are yet to raise themselves in my little one's mouth. Hope she is soon all smiles all the time.

YAY Summer! It is here. ;)
Max seems to be doing well on two wheels! Our first attempt fell sortof flat...... but, we will keep trying.

Could there be a vampire in that smutty book you're reading? Hmmm?

I love these beautiful posts of yours.

And I'm soooo curious about the smut...I'll just make guesses and probably come up with something EVEN WORSE than what it actually is :)

I think I'll take my cue here and relearn again (so learner) to enjoy the time with my kids this summer. I'll give in to the natural crush that is them.

Come ON, Kate, What is the smut?? That's the best way I know to redefine time: smutty novels! Share!
