Hi guys! My poor neglected blog has been collecting cobwebs and I sure do miss it.
This week off has been amazing! It was very much needed, and really, truthfully, I sort of battled internally about returning.
I became quiet with my own thoughts, instead of typing them out here. And every now and again, I thought oh how I would love to just go straight to bed at night instead of blogging, and how the camera could stay home more etc. And then I thought, I would probably still stay up super late, and take a million and one photos of my daughter. So continuing to blog obviously won. 😉
I came to the conclusion, that I love this place.. this space.
Peter and I spent more time talking then we have since we had River. Most times we found ourselves talking about River. Others, we reminisced on our days with just us two.
One of the nights, we decided to barbecue on our back porch. Peter seasoned the turkey burgers as I started a little tub/pool for River. Peter and I talked and talked, as I sipped on wine, and as River washed her hair with a solo cup. It wasn’t fancy, it was us. Just the two that complete me. It was perfect.
