I prefer wild over cultivated when it comes to flowers but could not be more smitten with my new addition to the garden.
Summer is settling in here and it's been amazing so far. I'm going to the grocery store and preparing meals for my children. The baby has the opportunity to nap. The house is clean. I am even sitting down from time to time. It gives me a little stomach ache to think of how much more smoothly our lives run without extracurricular activities to stress me through the day and eat up our family time in the evenings. I'm the mom I desperately want to be without them. This should be a comforting realization but it's not. It makes going forward much more troubling, especially as the demands are only going to escalate as the children grow.
But for now, I'm going to put those thoughts on the back burner and enjoy the heck out of this summer. I normally shun the pinterest world, but to bear the Texas summers we need as many pinteresting ideas as I can summon. Ice cream cakes, campfires, tie-dye, water balloons, and dew kissed garden roses.
