Life and other wonderment

// a gorgeous attic renovation, a sale at steven alan, an easy diy towel rack, and a raspberry apricot galette
Yesterday we watched our little grown-up play the drums like a boss with a legit little band, better than I ever would have imagined he could. On the drive home he was quiet, and when we walked through the door he ran straight up to his room without saying a word, like suddenly we had a teenager in the house.

Then just as I was marveling at how old he’s gotten and starting to sink down into sadness, feeling like our little guy was gone, a little scream rang out from behind that closed door – a scream I can only imagine was connected to the most elaborately-imagined battle being waged in some far off land – and my heart relaxed. We still have some time.

Hope you’re all having an amazing start to your weekend! We’re happy to be home, and to be together… enjoying the little moments we have.
