This time last year I was anticipating an anniversary trip to Mexico. Today I laid in bed until 2pm then did some walking around the mall and Ikea in hopes of getting this sweet baby out of my body. The insomnia is setting in, and my sleep schedule is upside down, which I suppose is good preparation for what's to come.

I told J we should just lay around and enjoy what was possibly our last opportunity to ever sleep this late and lounge around on a Saturday. So that's what we did.

I've been trying to enjoy each moment more. Yes, I'm ready for the next chapter and am always looking forward to whatever's in store for my/our future, but there's so much goodness in the present, so I'm making an effort to be more... present.

I'm still dreaming about our next vacation, though.


  1. BABY Active, OMG, it's your due date so soon or maybe I've been away. Safe delivery and enjoy the silence.

  2. A forever goal of mine. Life passes by so fast and even when we know this, we still wish away our days and moments. I'm definitely guilty of this and actively working to get better at being more present.
