As I type this, Lily is sound asleep, Carl is working on a paper at the kitchen table, and I am on the couch, sipping a cup of tea, feeling more calm than I have in
Pair that with 500+ pages of literature I'm assigned each week as part of my grad school program, plus household duties and of course the responsibilities of being a fiance and a mama, and I had been feeling overwhelmed for a while. Honestly, I felt too guilty to blog unless the reading was done and the house was in order. I felt guilty and uninspired and kind of overwhelmed by the prospect of putting my thoughts on paper (erm, virtually?) and pretending I had it all together. FINALLY, after weeks and weeks of feeling somehow ill-suited to juggle all of this, I've done it. Things at work are settling into a manageable pace, our home is clean, school is still hectic (but Spring Break is in sight!) and I finally feel like I can spare a few minutes to blog guilt-free.
With that said, I've got a ton of pictures and updates I'd like to share, and I will, over the next few days. For now, I wanted to share this beautiful download I found here, because if you're anything like me, you could use a little reminder once in a while.
