Living in the Present + A Mini Dress (on repeat!)


Do you remember the way yesterday smelled?  I was reading an article last week about how to be present and loved this quote: “Soak in as much of today as you possibly can – the sights, the sounds, the smells, the emotions, the triumph, and the sorrow.”  Saturday was filled with strawberry pancakes at a new place we stumbled upon because they had parking and the place we were trying to go to didn’t, the sound of Parker singing, “Shoo Fly Don’t Bother Me” as a fly persistently tried to get his own little hands on those sweet summer strawberries that poked out from beneath the pancake’s surface.  There was the sight of winding country roads as we made our way out to the lake house to enjoy the perfect 85 degree weather, the feeling of the wind whipping through our hair on the boat as my dad drove across the unusually calm water.  The smell of outside on our skin that was replaced by the smell of lavender body wash as we showered before hopping into pajamas for some couch cuddles before bedtime.  I’m not someone that particularly loves being pregnant, but I’m even finding myself enjoy the present moment of stretching skin, a growing belly, and kicks that get more fierce by the day.  And while ninety percent of my clothes may not fit, I’m enjoying the new way that some of them do, bump and all.
