A Snowy Snooze

makes me happy.

Lately I fear that if I blink my eyes for too long I may fall asleep.

Just saying is all.

Still Wishing I Could Breathe Underwater

makes me happy.

When Kev showed me these photos he snapped of the kids building a snowman the other day I thought,

'These photos give me a total Wes Anderson vibe.'.

So very Max Fischer.

Know what I mean?

Slowly Enough To Savour

makes me happy.

A few interesting opportunities have presented themselves as of late.

Opportunities that have made think, 'Oh, that would be fun! I should give that a try.'

Then life continues to happen and before you know it I'm getting Kev to snap a headshot (see above) of me in the two free minutes (one minute) I have before walking out the door for work.

Needless to say, once I saw it... I began to pump the brakes.

Keeping it at a medium pace over here, folks.

A nice medium pace.

His Sweet Nothings

make me happy.

Kev and I celebrated our wedding anniversary last night with a quiet dinner out.

On a side note, I just found out that they call February 13th Mistress Day. Who knew?!?

 A few things about last night...

 Early on in the evening Kev locked eyes with me over the candlelit table and told me, with stone cold authority, that he wanted to slap me... with his lips.

Toward the end of the meal Kev leaned in and whispered, "I want to undo 3 of my buttons." I chuckled as I too, was very full. "Want to know how many I have?" he continued. "Three?" I guessed. "Four." was the answer.

And then as we walked to the car, hand-in-hand, Kev checked the time on his phone and then stopped, pulled me in for a kiss and told me "No rush. I told my mom we'd be home before midnight."

As we stood on the street corner, enjoying the moment, I had to inquire, "What time is it?"

"Nine forty-five." he responds.

 Laughter ensues.

The Next Couple Hours Out Back

makes me happy.

Something I've learned about helping the children during their moments of distress,

is to do exactly that... help them.

Discuss these where these big, adverse feelings come from.

Empathize, and let them know you too have felt something similar.

Knock around possible solutions to bring more peace and balance to the moment.

Help them.

Sounds so simple now.

Our Super Bowl Sunday

makes me happy.

I've been ramping up my work load as of late and, I'm not going to lie, life be busy.

On Sunday,

a day off for me after a busy week,

it felt like the whole family chipped in...

to provide me with the most relaxing...


most productive Sunday off,

a girl could ask for.

It began with a couple hours of...

early morning play

at my sister's house,

with Kevyn behind the camera!

Pretty cool so far, eh?
