Makes Me Smile

  • yesterday's happy mail: a fabulous thank you card from a fabulous friend
  • an impromptu "why won't our boys nap?" playdate with a lovely neighbor
  • waking up at 3 am with a 3 year old cuddled next to me and no recollection of how he got there
  • hearing AJ hit the ground running (literally) this morning and that little voice "Hello, Mama!"
  • sugar free pumpkin spice creamer
  • those few hold out trees that are still full of blazing red and yellow leaves
  • an email gratitude chain and knowing my girls are having good mornings
  • skinny jeans and ballet flats and feeling a little less like a hot mess
  • Sammy wearing an outfit I loved on his big brother
  • a wave from one of AJ's non verbal classmates (and eye contact too!)
  • getting the trash out before the garbage truck hit our street
  • dinner plans with a bestie, even if it will be our last for a while
  • hitting the half way point in Karl's business trip and we're all still alive
  • a good forecast for our family photos this weekend
  • a running dishwasher and washing machine and 10 minutes to write this blog

Um, blogging before 8 AM should also be on your list of accomplishments for the day.
