  1. here’s to spring!

    March 20, 2013 by louissa

    This blurry candid I snapped the other day seems to capture what this winter has been.

    Colorless. Tired. And so much fun.

    Here’s to a more colorful, energizing, but still as fun spring!

    P.S. I think these would be the perfect way to add some color to our world. Don’t you think?


  2. thankful

    March 6, 2013 by louissa

    My husband who loves, serves, and guides me. My baby who cuddles, smiles, and talks to me 90% of his awake moments. Leftover Banana Whole Wheat pancake batter to make for lunch. Temperatures warming enough by mid-day to warrant short walks. A handed down baby carrier that is oh-so comfortable. Sisters who get it and are simply a text away. My beautiful [but messy right now] kitchen. Hot tea to sip while I get ready for some more housework. Knowing that He is with me every single second of every single day.

    This is my thankful list today.


  3. blessed sleep

    March 1, 2013 by louissa

    My morning cup of coffee has increased in size by a few cups recently. And there’s a routine to go with the giant mug that holds 5 cups: The Husband is kissed goodbye, I tidy the kitchen from us eating breakfast, fix my giant mug, and then our Sunshine stirs and beckons me from upstairs. Mug in hand I go to nurse him as he wakes for the day.

    This morning I still have the giant mug in hand but don’t technically “need” it like I usually do. My three month old slept straight through from 9:30pm-6:30am. And I was scared silly when the alarm rang only to find that my baby hadn’t been moved to our bed with his first wake up like usual. A hand on his back proved that his heart was still beating and I had merely lucked out.

    I don’t expect this to happen again for a very long time. A total fluke.

    Kinda like the day that I went to get him after a nap only to find that he had rolled over. He’s not done that again since.

    Total flukes.

    He’s still my baby, he still needs me at night (right?!), and I’ll still want a giant mug of coffee every morning.

    But for now I’ll enjoy the feeling of seven consecutive hours of sleep for this body.

    And because our Sunshine is so perfect and beautiful and everything wonderful to look at…
