a few moments from today.
the weather was beautiful and it was a pleasantly slow saturday.
willa seems to actually appreciate my (black) coffee but today i limited her to dipping her animal crakers in it. i do try to prevent her from actually drinking it.
i didn’t bring my phone but jean and i took the boys (including hobbes!) and willa to a new hiking spot at the hollow rock nature preserve. Willa loves a hike and even asked to hike tomorrow when i put her to bed.
willa asked me to sit in the chair in her room while she had book time in her crib.
maggie and i spent time during willa’s nap adding some (MUCH long awaited) finishing touches to the playhouse. We have plans for making it extra comfortable and decorated for christmas.
the day was, of course, not without its significant ups and downs and i have a considerable amount of work to do this weekend – but it is so worthwhile to pause and reflect on the lovely.
