I wanted hardwood floors.
Can’t stop dreaming about the next vacation.
Lusting after the Prada dress and Louis Vuitton Bag.
The neighbours can afford to put in a hot tub and they just bought a cottage up north too?
Good grief how has that women had twins and look like THAT in a bikini.
I am tired of headaches. Like all the time.
Jealousy was making me green. So not my colour. Feeling sorry for myself, so not my thing.
Then, I spent the day around the pool with my girls giggling and playing. We all ate freezies, and used up every drop of the sunscreen. Invited some friends over. Didn’t worry that the house was a mess, and shared a big dinner on the back deck. Capped off the night with a long drive under the stars.
Lying in bed, reflecting on all that I do have, I realized how crazy it is to get caught up on the little things I don’t.
I am blessed, lucky and happy beyond belief.
Time to stop waiting for the house to be perfect, for the stars to align, or for the other shoe to drop. Always afraid that something will happen to shatter our happy little place in the world. Time to be grateful for the sun and for the storms. After all, as they say, you can’t have a rainbow without a little bit of rain……
Hope you all had a beautiful weekend.
I’m going to take a couple days off commenting to play with my girls and be thankful for all that makes me smile:)
*Oh might also cram in some after hours super crazy packing for BlogHer! Thanks to ShesConnected and 3M Canada I will be whooping it up in San Diego from Wednesday to almost Monday. Hope you enjoy some of my favourite and/or most controversial posts while I am away.
I will miss you!
