please. do. not. make. me. adult. today.

I don’t really have any other way to explain it. Nothing happened out of the ordinary. I just woke up sad, scared, and missing my mama. She is on vacation this week in Wildwood, NJ with her dude friend, Frank. She loves the ocean and enjoys just sitting and listening to the beach. My mama took me to Cape Cod, MA every summer since I can remember. They are some of my fondest memories of just mom + me time together, just being together. Lucas and I started taking our kids to Cape Cod every summer since Gracie was just born. I really hope it will be a family tradition that we will do forever. Anyways, this morning I found myself thinking about last year around this time. As mentioned in my last blog post, mom was in and out of the hospital almost every month. It was all a horrible, terrible nightmare, but for us we look back at last year and know that we got through it – together. I/we have to focus on that. When things got tough, we got tougher. I have to remind both of us all of the time that being afraid of things going wrong is not the way to make things go right and that there is always something to be thankful for. Today, I am thankful for many things, but very thankful for my little business that allows me to take a day for me – to just focus on me, to be gentle with myself and live in the moment today.

I can’t do a blog post without some images. Below are some images of the transformation that we have made this past year:

It is crazy how your life can change in one day, one hour, one minute, but today I am going to focus on this moment, this day. It was just a bad day, not a bad life.
