First: thank you all so much for your sweet and thoughtful comments on my last post. Answering comments regularly is still one of the things I’m trying to cram into my days, so I really appreciate your patience! Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts with me! It’s so wonderful to have your support and encouragement. It means so much to me.
And now, on to October:
Reading about five different books: the new Murakami, my book club book, a book on how kitchens run (ganked from Eric’s library pile), this because it’s awesome and inspiring, and this mystery on my mom’s recommendation. Long live the library!
Watching Top Chef (the last season!) and occasionally a bit of Gilmore Girls, but planning to watch Happy Valley too.
Enjoying taking walks every evening to pick Eric from work.
Appreciating cooler days and breaking out the leggings.
Eating lots of almonds and cottage cheese. Two of my faves.
Scheming and dreaming about all kinds of trips because of the awesomeness of Airfare Watchdog. (No one paid me to say this–it’s just that they find crazy low ticket prices that make my wanderlust-afflicted heart go pitter-patter.)
Lighting a candle when I have some time to read during nap time.
Savoring every cup of coffee like the beautiful gift from heaven it is.
Cooking quinoa and lentils and carrot soup with chickpeas.
Celebrating being able to have a few meals out with Micah’s godparents.
Marveling with Eric over every little new thing Micah does.
Laughing and dancing and making funny faces and generally doing anything that might elicit a gummy baby smile. The best.
Loving my days with Micah, who is not only the cutest baby who ever lived, but also the sweetest.
Feeling so happy and at peace.
