Spring Cleaning

Today I am grateful for:
  • Waking up to the cool spring air once again and realizing how in love I am still with my husband.
  • Getting dressed and not having a problem picking out a really cute outfit for an 8 mth prego person due to the fact that I got rid of about 35 dresses, 15 tops, and about 10 other random things and organized my closet 2 days ago. ( That is only Phase II as well )
  • I have an awesome handle on my wardrobe now, and I can see things that I like instead of it being covered in random clothing that I picked up from doing shoot exchanges, etc. I love the feeling of being on top of an ever evolving wardrobe.


Friday morning love

Today I am grateful for:
  • The chilly early morning spring air seeping through the skylight carrying the sound of birds chirping to greet our day.
  • The warm fuzzy feeling that tingles in me this morning starting in my chest and radiating throughout my whole body as I look over at my beautiful husband's cute crooked lips still sleeping as he rolls over and snuggles me with his soft brown toned hands and arms making us into a human pretzel.
  • My sister-in-law Marie for coming over weekly on Thursdays and sparking my creative mind just by showing up with her 20 year old energy that consists of a passion for life and fashion and new things. ( I wake up with my mind racing in many directions covering all of the things I want to create and learn and experience and share after she comes over )
  • My beautiful sons, Ryder & Timothy. Ryder came in to bed with us this morning with perfect breath ( why can't I have morning breath that is so sweet?? ) He giggled and cuddled between Richie and I and brought a complete feeling of joy to us.


One Early Morning in Spring

I am starting a record of appreciations. I will post an entry as often as I feel appreciation for what I have and could have, etc.

Today I am grateful for:
  • The beautiful windows letting in the soft gray morning light in our gorgeous studio that we've managed to stay in throughout the recession.
  • My lovely family.
  • The cool air of this spring morning.
  • My baby whom I will meet very soon!
  • The aroma of fresh Pete's Coffee brewing downstairs.


Harsh Reality

I did my makeup in the harsh sunlight, and I started to see all of the flaws that I don't normally see in the bathroom mirror. I'm 32 and can totally see that I actually am finally aging. I used to think it wouldn't happen to me.
