These days, I'm practicing being content, relinquishing control and being kind to myself.  I'm banishing small anxieties, being present and whispering 'thank you' in my mind for everything. These days, we are trying to keep warm, looking at each other in the eye and trying to savor moments with each other. 

I love this photo of Ken, Ken's grandma, Ken's mom and Sloane from when we went down to Va Beach a few weeks ago. Recently I have been feeling refreshed and peaceful whenever we go down there.

We got to celebrate my MIL's birthday together and Sloane was more than happy to sing happy birthday at the top of her lungs and help blow out the candles.

Pushing a small-sized cart around the grocery store is her happy place. I picked up a copy of Cook's Illustrated and as always, it's so good.

I walked in on this sweet moment and it totally made me swoon.

Sloane got a new 'big girl' bed! She loves it. 

We told her the crib is now for her baby sister and she's been practicing with baby lamb.

Coming in from the snow, verrrry reluctantly.

There was a time when I used to see these girls regularly, but it hasn't happened enough recently so it felt like a breath of fresh air to catch up last week. 

She is really taken with the ukelele and 'playing' songs on it. 
My favorite ones are the ones she makes up. 

The weekend ended with Sunday night dinner and these three loves.
