Today Jackson was more fussy than normal….I have to say, when he went down to sleep for the night we all breathed a little sigh. I am pretty sure that he is going through another growth spurt because he is eating like a horse and sleeping like a baby. Now I understand that saying….he took a 3 1/2 hr nap today! While he slept, I used the time to run around the house and do everything that I could before he woke up again. It was quite a fun challenge.
While I was pregnant I just imaged what it would be like to be a mom….I knew it was going to be wonderful but I felt like it would be a lot more work than joy. There seems to be a prevailing cloud that motherhood is cast under. People warn you when you get pregnant with the classic, “Enjoy your sleep now, you won’t be getting any when that baby comes!” or the “Everything changes when you have a baby, enjoy life now!” And you know what? Don’t listen to them. You will only start fearing motherhood…I mean, who wants to stop enjoying life right?! Listen, motherhood is amazing. It is one of the hardest, most beautifully satisfying thing I have ever done. I just can’t get enough of my little man…(Even saying this after a very fussy day too!)

I love this color scheme! It has to be one of my favorites. Isn’t purple such a rich color?

Funny how you change.
I was just sitting down the other day having a nice quiet moment with a warm cup of coffee, reading my favorite book and I started thinking back to my former life. Back on the east coast there was nothing I liked better than a full day with many productive tasks on my TO DO list. I would wake up and start checking off the list: Paint the bedroom, Order flowers for the wedding next weekend, Make a Ceremony backdrop, Cook dinner for two families, Organize the TO DO list for the wedding for next weekend. The pressure always was there to perform.
Now in my new life in CA I have one thing I haven’t had in years….freedom from the mental rampage of the TO DO list… and you know what? I have found that taking pressure off my self gives me space to think. Freedom in my mind means I perform so much better. Crazy how it’s a total full circle.
So hey maybe change is not that bad? Bring.it.on.

I came across these bouquets beauties and just had to share them! These cold grey winter days sure could use a pop of color now and then!
