SUN + WARMTH = happy me

There is just something about today that is making me feel very happy and content and I can't put my finger on it. Could it be that my wonderful husband drove Ava to school and ran errands, while Grace napped and Gabriel watched a show allowing me to tidy up the house.

Could it be that I managed to get all our bedding in the wash and is now hanging on the line. What is it about looking at clothes/sheets/blankets fluttering in the wind that is just sooo calming???

Could it be that it is soo sunny and warm today and I was able to squeeze in 45 minute phone conversation with my aunt in Connecticut? She is soo wonderful and supportive! I just love her! She makes me feel cheery!

Could it be that last night I managed to give myself a french manicure and just makes me feel SOOO GIRLY and like my old self?

Could it be that I have all the windows open in the house and the sun is spilling into the rooms and wind is blowing the curtains about?

Could it be that my husband and I are in the process of making plans to drop the kids off at his parents place for the night, so we can go on a date?

Could it be that I may finally be able to have my first taste of THE BEST FISH AND CHIPS anywhere for the spring/summer? Jay and I have decided that that is what we want to do for our date. Eat fish and chips by the river, watch boats float by, chat maybe get a Starbucks... and then rent a movie.

Could it be that I MAY... JUST MAY sleep in Saturday morning 'cause the kiddies are at Nanny & Gumpys?

I don't know......... I'm just HAPPY and I don't think I have to figure out why. I just have to TAKE IT ALL IN!!!!!!!

Have a GREAT weekend y'all!
