This is just to say... I totally have a village around me to help Gabbi, Dom, Nathan, and me. Between visits, food, gifts, texts, emails, phone calls, and social media, I feel very loved and supported. If I tried to list off all of the help from friends and family, I would miss someone because, … Continue reading The blessings of friends
What’s that word again?
I was attempting to say, "version," but I was also talking about "revisions". My brain muddled them all up as I attempted to speak intelligently and professionally in a meeting at work. In the end, I spoke of "visions". Visions at work. Tonight, Dom was trying to explain that he wanted something out of the … Continue reading What’s that word again?
I think this year, I’ll skip the holidays
One strand. No ornaments. Thousands of dead needless on the floor. No tree skirt. Tree's been up since Monday. Somebody else want to come decorate, clean, and get my house organized? I can't do it.
Little little man
Dom had his two year wellness check today. He's average height but we have a skinny fella on our hands, breaking the scales at the fourth percentile, 24 lbs. Protein shakes for breakfast. And we've officially moved on to underwear, cloth diapers will be going into storage. Much rejoicing.
quick note on saying sorry
As frustrating as the bus ride was, as difficult as it was to feel the eyes of the other bus riders, as exasperated as I felt with a screaming child, as much as it bruised my arm when he bit me, I do have to remember that eventually, Dom said sorry and I didn't tell … Continue reading quick note on saying sorry
Lights and home
The moon was bright and so big that Dom asked to hold it. It's our moon in this picture, because it's on our property. The only downside of a big, beautiful moon? It hides the stars. I think I'm due for a trip up a canyon to trace the constellations.
Grey or gray
How do you spell it? The skies these past few days have been gray, thunderous, clashing, wet, and storming. I love it. I suppose it matches my personality: all stormy with streams of sunlight bursting through at surprising times. I try to let more and more sunlight through. I'm learning. Things at work have been … Continue reading Grey or gray
breaking up with the garden
Yesterday evening, Nathan and I signed our names or initials on page after page of legalese-filled documents. We will now be moving to Davis County as we purchased our first house together, up the hill in Bountiful. Growing up in Salt Lake, I was definitely an east bench girl. Who wouldn't love the streets lined … Continue reading breaking up with the garden
General Conference and the boys
This is a nice way to attend church with a toddler. And notice how Pogi also partook of the spirit with us? Partook. What an interesting word.
I've spent all morning modeling. It's exhausting... for my brain. I'm not strolling a catwalk or posing for the camera. I wasn't working with clay, either. This has been my modeling today: The downside of spending my day with work like this is that it's not an accomplishment that I can explain to Nathan well when … Continue reading Modeling Work
