Love and Light

Today is her birthday and she turned 21. She’s not here though. She’s in England. It’s an odd feeling for both of us. We were texting the other night about her turning 21, and she said, “I wish I were five.” Well, my darling. I remember five, and wondered if I’d do anything different? Then […]

The Velvet Timberland’s

Me: Would you like a cup of coffee? (watching the Chemex complete it’s cycle.) Her: I just made a cup of tea. Me: You can have both. (said with ease) Her: What a beautiful world we live in when I can have both. Our life is beautiful, and I think sometimes people become weary of […]

Inhale. Exhale. Dream.

I washed our bath robes today. My daughter has so much going on in her life, the best way I can help is doing little things around the house, so her home life remains calm. I was putting her robe in the dryer and paused to look at the label. I couldn’t recall if it […]

Hand Her Chocolate

We’re in high vibration mode this week. My daughter is studying for finals, which she will take Saturday morning. Then Saturday afternoon, her beau arrives from England.

My daughter and I cook and eat together. Sometimes it’s one of us or the other depending on our week, but we enjoy doing both. I bought this prism and hung it in one of the kitchen windows. The sun hits it just right around the time we cook dinner. Now we know when it’s […]

Cookies and Chemex

I’m getting the hang of this emptying nest. My daughter has not been home this week. She has a friend visiting and they’re spending time together. She texted me yesterday before they came by for a visit. It was nice to see them and be included in her life, but it wasn’t sad to see […]

We Are Experienced

My daughter was getting ready for school and yelled, “I’m looking in your closet!” I thought she would just borrow a t-shirt. We share those sometimes, but nope. She walked out of my room wearing a top I haven’t even worn yet! I looked at her with curiosity and asked… “Is that my new sleeveless […]

Chasing the Sunset

I’ve started my morning over twice so far. The taste of my coffee wasn’t pleasing, so I made a Chemex. I hadn’t made one in so long, it didn’t drain completely, but this is how I felt regardless. Did it not drain, or did I not give it time? ♥ ♥ ♥ This morning I […]
