[heavy sigh]

At this particular moment in time I have a perfectly-whelming (not "over" or "under") feeling of contentment.

It could be that my doors and windows are open for this first time in months welcoming in the slightest, humid breeze and the much-missed sound of the palm trees dancing...

...Or it could be that I planted new green things yesterday and that planting anything, whether a seed or ground cover, makes me feel that all is right with the world.

...Or, it could be that Lila and I spent the morning at my sister's house in her pool enjoying extremely pleasant conversation and iced tea.

...Or, it could be that today is Sunday, my favorite day, and that tomorrow's holiday Monday means ultimately another Sunday.

...Or it could be that today I acknowledged for the ba-jillionth time that when I walk in my house and see my husband, my heart stops for the slightest of seconds.

...Or it could be that I feel strong today. That I can be a good mommy to two little girls. That I can do this.

...Or maybe I'm so contented because today is one of those days when I realize just how blessed I am.



  1. Thank you for your compliment over on my blog!! Seriuosly it made my weekend.

    How exciting you have another baby coming at the end of January! :-) The 2nd one is much easier.

  2. I had the same kind of day today....and I didn't realize it until our after dinner walk, when I decided to race my husband down the driveway and we both ended up laughing so hard our cheeks hurt. As we stopped, looked back and saw Sophia cheering us on, I just felt blessed. Truly blessed.

    Although I don't know you IRL, I feel (from reading your blog) that you are going to make an AMAZING Mommy to these two little girls. No ifs, ands or buts. You will be.

  3. I ADORE THIS POST... It made my heart swell with happy for you. :)

  4. I thought that you could only be "whelmed" in Europe, but I guess you can in Mexico, as well. :) I am so glad that you are doing so well!

  5. Awww! What a great post! I'm so happy that you're so happy. :)

    (And that's super cute about your heart and Craig.)
