It's Been Awhile . . .

We have had a very busy few weeks, leading to me being quite quiet on the blog. Waverly wasn't feeling well and developed a terrible cough that took some time to go away. This meant I had the joy of keeping her home from school. We took walks and watched movies - we had a great time together. 

I was also able enjoy a few weekend mornings cuddling with Oliver, while he watched Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in our bed. It is one of my favorite rituals and I love beginning a weekend slowly with this little guy.

I was also able to take a girls trip to Costa Rica for 5 days with two of my very best friends. Matt took some vacation days to cover things at home. And I was able to take a real break and rest with dear friends. Lots of coffee, wine and conversation.

I kept checking in here during recent weeks, Shannon, and was always disappointed when I wouldn't find a new blog entry. So I was so happy to come by here today and find one!! I absolutely love the photos that you posted. I can so feel the happiness that these treasured moments bring you when the kids are at home. xxx, Joanne

Love you all, and that dog acts like a professional model! Feel so happy that you enjoyed a girls' week abroad and broke out that passport! nm

Thank you so much for your blog. Our precious Victoria was diagnosed at 2yrs 10months with Sanfilippo Syndrome Type A. Like Oliver, she never really spoke but has been a joy and delight to us with her beautiful giggle and her boundless energy. She recently celebrated her 8th birthday and has had ups and downs over the past year. She is now losing her ability to swallow. Thank you for sharing your story.
